Twin Home Experts has been providing emergency services for over 20 years in Los Angeles and has performed thousands of flood outs from a bursted pipe to a drain pipe gushing sewage all over your home or business.
The first response from a homeowner or business owner when severe damage occurs is to call a plumber. In the ideal scenario, the plumber arrives, detects and stops the leak.
Once the pipe or drain is contained, the homeowner or landlord calls a 1-800 number to file a claim with their insurance carrier for property damages. The insurance claims department will provide a claim number and start asking a few questions, including:
If you have not shopped around for a company yet, the insurance company is likely to send ServPro, who they consider a “preferred” vendor.
Most of the time, the insurance company will use terminology that will scare you into feeling obligated to use their vendors. Some of the phrases you may hear are:
As a consumer holding an insurance policy, you have the right to choose who you want in your home to perform work. Don’t be intimidated by scare tactics. At the end of the day, a “preferred vendor” isn’t necessarily preferred by your community.
There’s a few key differences between an insurance vendor and our team. We are all about full transparency and integrity. We put the customer first and truly want to help those in need. The reason for this post is to help you get the absolute best coverage under your policy when you file a claim.
When it comes to treating water damage in Los Angeles, there are two companies you’ll find at the top of most lists: The Twin Home Experts and ServPro.
ServPro is a recognizable company and deservedly so. They have many good qualities, but often prioritize quantity before quality of work.
The most critical step in getting coverage is making sure your plumbing system failed due to a sudden cause or a burst. You’ll receive coverage if a water pipe burst and flooded your home, but you aren’t likely to receive a claim if there is a slow leak or your drain pipe has roots.
This is why it’s so important to try to just deal with one company that acts on your behalf before bringing in your insurance and their “preferred” vendor.
