Agricultural Burst Pipes Insurance Claims
Water damage is something that all homeowners dread. What may start off as a small and unimportant leak can quickly escalate to a much bigger issue. Water damage can occur from a roof leak, burst pipe, kitchen appliance leak, sanitary ware leak, blocked toilets, a frozen pipe bursting, plumbing issues and toilet failures. Water damage can be easy to remedy if it is caught at an early stage, but that is not a common occurrence. For most people, water damage can be an extensive and expensive event to happen.
Water damage is devastating, it can damage flooring, dry lining, furniture, upholstery, electronics, household appliances, plumbing systems, machinery and stock. You may need to find temporary accommodation for all inhabitants (two and four-legged!) and you may also need to get some temporary storage for any items that were saved from damage.
Your first instinct may be to clean, tidy and dispose of all the damage, but this is a mistake as you need to properly document all damage and account for every little thing.

Water damage can also pose a major health issue for you and your family. If the water is from a clean source then this makes the clean-up easier and lessens the level of damage, if the water is even slightly contaminated with dirt or sewerage then the clean-up and the level of damage caused will have double or trebled. Contaminated water poses a real threat to your health and once it has entered your home, you need to professionally clean the area and all furnishings to ensure it is safe for people to inhabit again.

While many insurance companies will assist you at the outset of your fire claim, their only responsibility is to ensure costs are covered to restore your property and replace affected contents. The most stressful and time-consuming day-to-day elements will be left to you to organise and oversee alone if you do not appoint a Loss Assessor
There is no reason why your insurance company or Loss Adjuster should discourage you from appointing your own Loss Assessor to manage your fire insurance claim. If your Loss Adjuster is trying to dissuade you from using our services, you should question why they are against the idea of you being equally represented. After all, a Loss Assessor can only help a policyholder claim for what is legally covered within their insurance policy
