  • Speak with your adjuster about temporary living arrangements and monetary advances to cover this for a month or so, as your home is restored.

Water damage specialists can also handle septic systems, broken dishwashers, or other plumbing or water utility devices. In some cases, a water specialist may offer much lower prices and more accurate work than a regular plumber.
