Secondary water damages cleanup costs can run into the thousands and unprepared individuals are surprised to find secondary water damage is not covered by insurance providers.

    "As a policyholder, you are required to do all you can to minimize secondary water damage. Your policy requires that you "mitigate" which means taking reasonable steps to prevent further damages to your property," says local water damage repair expert Mike Fahouris. "Insurance companies typically don't pay for secondary damage resulting from policyholder negligence."

    To understand secondary water damage and why it goes without coverage you would follow the process of evaporation. As water sits it evaporates. The longer water sits, the more evaporation occurs. When evaporation saturates the air, condensation occurs and penetrates common surfaces such as drywall, ceiling tiles and wood flooring. Attentive property owners will halt the impact and damage through quick action and this is how insurance companies view responsible management.
