Many companies are offering restoration services after flood or water damage. However, not all of them are worth the money so you need to keep in mind some things before selecting the one who will work to your best benefits.
When you need them, a water damage restoration professional needs to respond fast. Their trucks need to wait for you call. They need to respond in 30 minutes or less and they need to arrive at your location in 1h or less. If they respond with answering machine during the day, you can’t expect to get a live representative at night.
Sometimes, water damage isn’t emergency (can wait a day or two) – in that case, you can look more at pricing and similar options to really find someone who fits you needs directly.
Special Flood Insurance
Most emergency situations is included in your general home insurance. However, special flood insurance can be useful for cases like sewage backup, toilet overflow and drain clogg. If you want to make sure your home or commercial building is safe from potential mold development or long term damage to your site structure and you don’t want to pay extra for it, go with the special flood insurance coverage and you will be able to sleep calmly.
When a job is finished, make sure you require all papers about the work that was done. This way if something goes wrong (mold start developing, etc.), you can instantly call them back and make sure they fix things the right way and/or pay for any additional damage.
The general rule for contractor selection is to use some common sense and listen to your wallet. If you have a bad feeling about someone, don’t hire them. Even if it’s an emergency, you can still get other people to respond in time and fix things for you. Especially since the insurance is paying for it anyway.
