CAUSES OF WATER DAMAGE IN PLAINFIELD
Plainfield, Indiana can experience heavy rains and storms that can cause disastrous storm damage to local properties. In the spring and fall months, winds and heavy rains can cause houses to flood and sump pump systems to fail. When it rains over 2 inches in an hour, there can be a lot of property owners who will experience issues with their basements. Also when the storms cause damage to the power lines, sump pumps are not able to remove water from the basement walls, and the water is forced to the point of least resistance, which is inside the basement.
Plainfield homeowners can also experience extremely cold temperatures that can cause many property owners to have frozen or burst water pipes. When the temperatures drop below 15 degrees Fahrenheit there tend to be property owners that experience frozen pipes and lots of water damage.

Water damage insurance claims can be difficult to understand if you have never filed a claim in the past.

Water damage is covered under most property insurance policies.
Restorex works with all insurance companies and has experience with every type of insurance claim. We understand the ins and outs of the claims process and can teach our customers what is and isn’t covered in their insurance claim.

WATER DAMAGE RESTORATION PROCESS
The water damage restoration process can be simply described in 3 steps.
- Inspection and Assessment of Water Damage
- Emergency Water Restoration Services
- Water Damage Repairs and Restoration
Inspection and Assessment of Water Damage
The inspection and assessment allow our team to see how much water has affected the property and determine the best course of action to recommend to the property owner. Every structure has its own unique challenges, so we like to take the time to discuss in detail with the property owner before we begin the water restoration services.
During the assessment we multiple moisture meters and thermal imaging to discover where the water went and how much of the structure is affected. After determining the amount of water damage, we can discuss the other steps of the process.
Emergency Water Restoration Services
The emergency water restoration services include getting the structure properly dried and cleaned after a water disaster. Any building materials that cannot be properly dried or returned to their original condition, will be removed during this step of the process.
We use water damage drying equipment to get wet structures dried out. This equipment includes:
- Low grain refrigerant dehumidifiers
- Air movers
The drying equipment will remove the excess moisture from the property so there is no secondary damage.
Water Damage Repairs and Restoration
After the drying is complete, the water damage repairs and restoration process can begin. Now, if there is an insurance claim being processed there can be a delay between the emergency services and the restoration. This can be a couple of weeks to a couple of months depending on the size of the water damage.
We usually tell our customers to get as comfortable as possible during these times. We are not in control of the insurance adjusters or their approval process. So once we get our estimates sent we have to wait for their approval process to be completed before the work begins.
The water damage repairs include putting the finished materials back together as before, with like-kind and like quality building materials.
The insurance company will use today’s cost dollars to replace the water-damaged materials so the cost of the repairs will not exceed what the insurance is paying. We ensure our customers that the only out-of-pocket expense will be their insurance deductible. All other costs will be directly paid in the insurance claim.
