All of us know what water damage looks like and what water remediation is; however, how one analyzes the damage vastly differs. In our experience as third party claims examiner who evaluates claims after the water damage occurs, and cleanup has been completed, we are left with a story, pictures, invoices, and statements. In each case we must evaluate the facts presented as a whole, but often begin the process accordingly. With each damage it must be determined what caused the damage. In many instances the answer is clear; however, what is not clear is how long the problem persisted. Was this damage due to negligence? Could the property owner mitigate the damages better? Was there an issue of preventative maintenance that has been overlooked? These are just a few of the many questions we begin to ask after a review of the facts.
When evaluating the cleanup we take a completely different stance. A full analysis begins with the time period to which the cleanup began. In nearly all cases, delay in the beginning the cleanup process greatly increases the amount of damage, thus increases the cleanup costs. Choosing the proper method of cleanup combined with the proper equipment usage procedures can greatly enhance, or if done improperly can prolong the cleanup process. At Elite we can evaluate all aspects of the cleanup process and compare the procedures used with what is being claimed for cost valuation. Our in depth evaluation of these claims often uncover inconsistencies or inefficient procedures that lead to more costs.
