Just in case you are unfamiliar with water damage inspections, this is what you can expect:
During a water damage inspection, the professional inspector starts outside, working their way inside your home. They will keep either photos or a video record of extreme damage to send with the insurance claim.
While inspecting the interior, the inspector will start from the top and work their way down. In the attic, they will check for damp insulation, cracked floors or joists, bent ductwork, or a wet ceiling. Throughout your home, they will look for damaged drywall and ceilings, broken windows, stained or warped wood, and doors that do not close properly.
In the bathroom and kitchen, the inspector will look for signs of leaks and damage on your ceramic fixtures, such as tile, sinks, bathtubs, and toilets. Afterward, they will go into your basement and look for pooling water, stained carpets or drywall, and cracked walls or floors. They will also inspect personal belongings that may show signs of water damage, such as clothes, electronics, appliances, and furniture.
