Common Causes of Flooding

Flooding can be caused by a number of different disasters. Depending on the nature of the disaster and the origin of the water, the resulting cleanup process can vary greatly. Understanding where the flooding is likely to come from will help you better prepare for and handle the flood damage if it ever impacts your property.
The most common causes of flooding include:

  • Storm Damage
  • Sewage Backups
  • Broken Pipes
  • Sprinkler System Malfunctions

Flood Damage Restoration Process

Water Damage Inspection

When you call Forefront after you find flood damage in your home or business, the first thing we will do is send one of our certified flood damage technicians to your property to inspect the damage and collect information to help us complete a restoration plan. This plan will include accurate timeline and cost estimates, all for free.

Water Extraction & Water Removal

The most impactful step of the flood damage cleanup process will be the water extraction step. Depending on the extent of the damage, the water removal process may take a while, but no matter the time needed, our team will work non stop to rid your property of floodwater, effectively minimizing the water damage.

Drying & Dehumidification

With the standing water removed, the majority of the work is done. We will then turn our focus to removing the trapped moisture from the building materials of your property. To do this, we will use our industrial strength dehumidifiers and blowers while checking our moisture meters to ensure a complete and thorough drying.

Flood Damage Cleanup

Flood water can be highly contaminated, so depending on the origin of the flood, this step may be rather extensive. In any case, we will always aim to salvage and restore as much of your property as possible and will only remove materials if they are deemed irreversibly damaged. This step is the last preparatory step before the flood damage repairs.

Flood Damage Repairs

No matter the extent of the damages, Forefront has the ability, licensing, and equipment to complete any repair needed to return your property to its pre-loss condition.

Flood Damage Tips

When it comes to floods, the most important thing is health, and that should always be your first priority. We have listed a number of tips that will help you stay safe in the aftermath of a flood, and a couple that will help you prevent unnecessary damage to your property.

  • Evacuate if you are told to
  • Do not walk, swim or drive through flood waters
  • Water is very powerful, six inches of moving water can knock you down, and one foot of moving water can sweep your vehicle away
  • Do not touch electrical equipment if it is wet or if you are standing in water
  • Turn off electricity if it is safe to do so
  • Call your local flood damage cleanup experts
  • Do not walk through or touch flood water

Does Homeowners Insurance Cover Flood Damage?

Unlike other water damage, flood damage is generally not covered in your basic homeowner’s insurance policy. Unless your flooding is caused by a plumbing issue it is likely that whatever damage you sustained will not be covered and will require you to have purchased an additional flood damage policy to receive assistance in restoring your property to its pre-flood condition.

The best way to know exactly what your coverage is to call your insurance provider and ask them to walk you through your specific coverages. It’s important to know what you are and are not covered for before you have a disaster that damages your property.
