Property owners’ assets are always at risk in the hands of the unpredictable and unknown. Whether you run a small mom-and-pop shop or an industrial empire, property damage can deal a drastic blow to your business, especially if your insurance doesn’t cover it.
To help protect against potential insurance losses, a high number of property owners are now turning to Immersive 3D Tours to more thoroughly document the condition of their assets before and after disaster strikes.
Unfortunately, recovering property from a disaster is a long and complicated process. Depending on size, claims can generally take anywhere from two to six months at minimum, and may involve a handful of visits to a site by an appraisal professional who must detail the extent of damage in order for an insured to receive full compensation. Usually, the larger the claim, the larger the hassle one faces throughout the insurance process.
The small intricate details matter when taking inventory of damages, but reporting on minor elements (such as water damaged walls after a flood, for example) can be a formidable task even for the most experienced and knowledgeable claims adjuster.
Ultimately, using a 3D camera to create a virtual model can greatly increase the magnitude of documentation, providing a level of dimensionality and detail that matters when it comes to insurance claims..
A handful have adopted to 3D Tours, a fully immersive end-to-end VR (Virtual Reality) platform, to capture the minutiae of their properties from floor to ceiling.
With immersive media such as 3D Tours, owners, restoration contractors, investigators and adjusters can capture a 3D digital copy of an affected space at a given point in time, giving remote viewers an opportunity to move about a property, view from different perspectives and zoom into details at ease.
Ultimately 3D Tours turn a property into a high-definition digital “dollhouse,” giving individuals an opportunity to walk through the space virtually via browser, mobile device, or VR (Virtual Reality) headset. It can even pick up images in spaces with extremely low light, allowing for the capture of dark basements or burnt-out structures with relative ease.
Auditing exactly what a business has lost in a disaster could mean the difference between immediate financial failure or recovery, so being able to give a precise and complete record is essential to speeding the claims process and recouping on damages.
Immersive 3D Tours freeze a property owner’s most valuable assets in time by recording structures and objects as they are both before and after disasters occur, so that property owners can get back on their feet again – often times before their insurance claim is sorted out.
Without this documentation, any move to repair a property otherwise could likely protract a claims process by “disturbing” the scene of the damage (meaning that if/when appraisers return, they won’t see the property in the state it was in after the initial damage occurred).
