- Do I need to move out of my home during the restoration process?
- Who is responsible for monitoring the drying equipment?
- What would be considered non-insured work?
Depending on the extent of damage, your insurance representative can help you answer this question. Ultimately, however, this is a decision you must reach on your own. Some things you may want to consider are safety concerns, odours, electricity, and disruption as a result of the equipment, work and noise that may be necessary to complete the restoration process in your home. If vacating your premises during the process, consider forwarding your mail to your temporary residence; stopping your newspaper and other deliveries; notifying your utility company, cable company, etc., of the temporary suspension of services during the restoration process.
ServiceMaster Restore’s water damage mitigation specialists will place and monitor specialized equipment throughout your commercial property to achieve optimal results in the shortest amount of time. Equipment should never be turned off or moved by anyone other than the damage mitigation technician.
Any construction project unrelated to the loss is considered non-insured work. At your request, we will provide a separate estimate for non-insured construction projects, and this work will require separate authorization and payment terms. If the non-insured work will delay the completion of an insured portion, then the situation must first be discussed with your Insurance Adjuster and the ServiceMaster Restore Project Manager.
