Water damage claim? Don’t let the plumber haul off the water heater or sump pump.

If you are unfortunate enough to have water damage to the point that you will need to file an insurance claim, don’t let the failed piece of equipment be hauled off right away. Sometimes insurance adjustors will want to inspect what it was that caused the water damage. Whether it be a water heater, sump pump or a water line, make sure to communicate with the insurance company first to see if they want what caused the water damage.
