- What does pre-loss condition mean?
- What is that smell?
- What will you do with my area rugs?
There may be some damage to your commercial property and facility that existed prior to the loss. Therefore, these damages will not be included in the scope of repairs. We are responsible for returning your commercial property to how it was before the damage occurred, in other words, to its pre-loss condition, using materials of like-kind and quality. At your request, we will provide you with an estimate for any additional construction projects you may wish undertaken by our team. This additional work is termed, “non-insured work.”
Usually, if it smells like mould, it is mould. Mould or mildew odours are due to the presence of fungi in the air, inside pipes or walls, or hidden in other parts of your home. Mould is thicker than mildew, so if the smell is particularly strong, that’s a clue that it’s mould and you need to act fast to prevent further growth.
Rugs damaged by water will be taken to our warehouse for special treatment and care. They will need to be dried carefully to minimize bleeding of colours and discolouration. Your rugs will be dried, cleaned and returned to your home after the complete drying of the rest of your home is completed.
