• 3 Signs of a Top Quality Water Damage Specialist

    How can you be sure you’re hiring the right professional to handle water damage?

    Repairing Water Damage in a Carpeted Room

    Water damage can be a real nightmare, and it can cause damage long after you think it’s resolved if it’s not cleaned up properly. You have to hire the right professional to make sure the cleanup is done right. How can you tell a top water damage specialist? Here are 3 signs:

    1. Are They Certified?

    Do not hire a company that isn’t a certified water damage specialist. This is critical. The company must be certified and its technicians trained according to industry standards and IIRC, or Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification. This training ensures that the technicians doing the job know how to restore your property correctly.

    2. You Get What You Pay For

    Is one company significantly cheaper than another? This could be a huge red flag when shopping for a water damage specialist. Prices in your area should be comparable. Call around to 3 or 4 different companies and get a feel for how much they’re charging and for what services. Make sure it’s a good match for your needs.

    3. Availability is Key

    If a water restoration company is not available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, move on to another company. Emergency response is essential. The sooner water damage is treated the better. Mold can start growing in less than 24 hours and the longer water sits the more damage it can do to the structure of your home.

    No one wants to deal with water damage, but choosing the right team to help you clean up the mess and restore your property is one of the best ways to get your home back on track and get back to life as you know it.
