Compared to fire damage, water damage can be the most difficult to detect at times. One small spot can actually turn out to be more damaged than it looks on the surface, along with mold.

As many people might not realize, the adjustment and repair process that follows water damage or any other insurance claim is difficult and stressful. This is largely due to having to make adjustments without the proper training or knowledge. Our clients regain their normal lives more quickly and easily than those who “do it alone.” We understand everyone’s need to concentrate on their families and professions without added financial worry or unfamiliar responsibilities.

If your home or business have suffered from water or mold damage, contact Michaelson & Messinger Insurance Specialists, LLC right away.

What You Can Do To Get Started

If you can safely reenter the building, find these documents whenever possible:
Id’s, insurance paperwork, and any medical and financial information as well as other property that is valuable to you, such as cash, jewelry, mementos, wedding albums and more. Be careful not to disturb the scene as well. Do NOT discard property that has been damaged and document your losses with photos and video. Do what you can with mops, dryers and blowers to prevent further damages; and keep detailed receipts throughout this process for any expenditure.
