When you need water damage restoration in your home or business, you need someone you can depend on. It’s not always just about choosing the biggest company; it’s about choosing someone qualified and trustworthy. Not all companies are the same. Their services and their quality of work could be vastly different.
Before you start sorting through the professionals, take a look at these tips to help you know what to look for.
Professionalism in Water Damage
There are many DIY and handyman companies out there. While these companies certainly can be very good at what they do, they likely don’t have the experience needed for this type of job. When dealing with damage that is specifically related to water, we recommend you find someone who understands this type of damage and has experience taking care of it.
From the water cleanup and extraction to sanitizing and checking for mold to the total restoration and repair process, there are a lot of details on the line. It seems so simple: just come in and clean up some water. But there are deeper details that should be known, observed, and taken care of.
This is why an experienced professional is essential.
Quick Responses Matter
When water strikes, it is all too often unexpected. And here’s the thing: water can start to cause mold growth in just 24 hours. The longer you have to wait for someone to show up to help you, the worse your problems are going to be. You can get the water shut off, but your capacity may be limited from there.
You need a crew that will move fast. Look for professionals who have a guaranteed quick response, or even have 24/7 services available to you. And then hold them to that promise that they really are quick and respond right away! If you have to wait more than a couple hours, you can likely find a better option and a company willing to be there fast for you.
You can do a lot with a little shop vac and some fans, but it doesn’t work as quickly as true professional equipment. When it comes to damages like these, you really want fast-working equipment too. Most of the professionals that offer services will have specialized fans and water extraction equipment.
This will help you get rid of the water and get things drying out much faster so you can make necessary repairs.
Finally, one of the details you may want to check is the type of experience other people have had. Word of mouth is often the best referral source for companies like this. It’s not every day that you need a professional water restoration team. However, you likely know someone who has needed them or at least knows a little something about companies in your area.
