The nature of mold and water restoration is a destructive one; fortunately many homeowner’s insurance policies cover one or the other – or both! This means we, as the mold remediation contractor, are often dealing directly with an insurance adjuster or public adjuster. We must be able to speak the same language for proper communication. Insurance companies often want estimates to be broken down in the detailed format provided by very expensive estimating software. Fortunately, we use Xactimate, as many insurance companies do, to create detailed sketches and broken-down estimates so there is no miscommunication or mincing of words. This fluid transfer translates to less headache from all parties involved, including the homeowner.
