Most homeowners have never read their insurance policy and when they do, they find it’s filled with legal ease. This is because the insurance policy is very detailed in explaining what’s covered and what’s not. They are designed to hold up in court and cover all the bases in case of a lawsuit or large claim. Also new regulations require insurance companies to make the contracts denser, making it even more difficult for the average homeowner to understand it. 

ANSI/IICRC S500 Standard for Professional Water Damage Restoration Standard is a publication / guide that describes the procedures to be followed and the precautions to be taken when performing water damage restoration in residential, commercial, and institutional buildings, and the systems and personal property contained within those structures. This Standard assumes that the determination and correction of the underlying source or cause of the water intrusion leading to the water damage is the responsibility of the property owner and not the restorer, although the property owner may contract with the restorer or other specialized experts to perform these services.
