Escape of Water

Escape of Water in a property

Richfords has over 40 years’ restoring water damage caused by burst pipes and escape of water. Furthermore, work wit all of the UK’s main buildings and contents insurers on their customer’s properties after an escape of water claim.

Escape of water is the term given if you have suffered water damage within your property from a fixed appliance. This could be anything from burst or frozen pipes to an overhead leak or a plumbing emergency.


Making an Insurance Claim

Most insurance policies require you, the policyholder, to “mitigate” the damage after an escape of water. That means your insurer expects you to take action to reduce the damage caused and therefore reduce the cost to them. One way you can do that is by calling Richfords. You insurer we pay for our work. Our Technicians will take action to reduce the damage. And our damage report will help your insurer register your claim.
