Swollen by a storm, a creek surges beyond its banks, devastating a business, ruining inventory, chasing employees, flooding office space and more. A home’s water heater bursts and, in just hours, soaks flooring, carpeting, wallboard, appliances, everything below knee level. The deluge is stemmed only after a neighbor sees a curious sight: water leaking around the front door.
Water unleashes awesome power and destruction in many different ways across every geography. Few of those affected anticipated the devastation or the difficult aftermath. Allstate Restoration, a company very experienced in restoring properties affected by severe flooding, helps customers across the United States confronting leaking or frozen water lines or pipes, overflowing appliances and fixtures, backed up sewage and septic tank lines, heavy rain or storms, and even flood-stage rivers, creeks or shorelines.
Storms and their effects on bodies of water are increasingly to blame for flooding. A recent study by the European Academies’ Advisory Council found that, around the globe, floods and extreme rainfall occur 50 percent more often than just a decade ago and four times more often compared to 1980.
Allstate Restoration professionals also provide another crucial service: assisting flood victims with insurance claims. We are very experienced at working with carriers to settle claims quickly – answering the needs of the insured parties, supplying proper documentation and complying with carrier regulations to smoothly support mitigation and restoration.
