Are You Ready for Spring Run Off?

Spring…are you ready for it?  Last year was a whirlwind of snowmelt and rain that led to some pretty significant flooding in BC.  We all expect our local creeks, and lakes to rise with the run off from the mountains, but not typically enough to cause damage like last year.  Flooding like we experienced last Spring leads to disastrous and costly property damages.  If you find yourself in an emergency situation, the best decision you can make is to call in the professionals at Stutters Disaster Kleenup.

At Stutters, we provide immediate and professional emergency disaster services such as water extraction, infrared moisture detection, dry air technology, content cleaning, odour control, mould remediation and storm damage restoration.

Your home and property are some of the most valuable and important investments for many Canadians.  Protecting those investments should be at the forefront of any owner’s mind, along with proactive steps that should be taken, or considered when choosing an appropriate insurance plan.

Many people would be surprised to know that most home insurance policies do not protect against flood damage.

Most policies offer comprehensive protection against a variety of losses, including sewer backup and water damage.  However; many policies do not currently protect against flood damage.  The difference between water damage and flood damage are often not realized until a disaster happens, and you are left to recover without the aid of an insurance company.  Ask your insurance agent if you are unsure of your coverage.

Flood Damage

  • Natural dam failure
  • Spring snowmelt runoff
  • Storm rainfall
  • Structural failure
  • Tidal or coastal flooding
Water Damage

  • Appliance failure (ie. dishwasher, laundry washing
    machine, hot water tank)
  • Faulty plumbing (ie. toilet or shower seal, leaky
    basement pipes, sewer back-up)
  • Man-made accidents (ie. overflowing sinks,
    spilled water)

Floods can be the result of overflowing rivers or streams, the inability of underground infrastructure to drain properly, or the combination of wind, waves, and high tides near coastal regions causing the ocean to spill into residential or commercial communities.

Whatever the situation may be, it cannot be stressed enough to ensure you are covered by your insurance policy.

If you find yourself with a disaster on your hands, be sure to call the professionals at Stutters Disaster Kleenup, and we will give you peace of mind knowing that you have made the best possible decision.

Upon receiving your call, an emergency technician will be dispatched to your home or property immediately to begin the remediation process.  Our technicians are highly trained professionals with the experience and knowledge to combat any property disaster situation.

We are here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to better serve you.  Call Stutters at 1-877-763-1540.
