Why Hire Professionals for Your Restoration
If you’ve recently had a severe water intrusion you might be thinking you can handle the problem on your own. In certain cases that might be true, but in others where there is standing water present you should seek the help of a professional restoration company. Many people are deterred by the sometimes big price tags that come along with this type of service. However, if the job is not handled properly the first time there is a good chance you’ll end up spending even more in the long run. Most likely youll need to pay for professional drying but chances are if you didn’t handle it properly there will probably be mold issues to take on as well.
Taking on any sort of manual labor possess a potential risk in terms of safety, especially when you are not experienced in the field. Professionals know exactly what needs to be done and how to do it safely. Things like electricity, slipping, heavy lifting, and indoor air quality problems are all risks that you can avoid by hiring an outside company to handle the work.
Equipment & Efficiency
Restoration companies like Water Mold & Fire have industrial drying equipment like air movers and dehumidifiers that can get a job done in a fraction of the time it would take for things like box fans. Drying quickly is so important as mold can start to grow in as little as 24 to 48 hours. You may be able to rent some of this equipment from a supply place, but in times of disaster where an entire area is experiencing flooding renting is usually not an option either.
If you have an insurance policy that covers water damage restoration, it would be silly not to use it in the event of a flood or pipe break. Unless an official claim is submitted via a professional company, chances are they will not cover your claim. All loses should be documented in detail and Xactimate software should be used to breakdown what was spent.
Most restoration companies including Water Mold & Fire will offer you a money back guarantee in terms of your damaged property being returned to its regular state without mold growth following within a certain period of time. It is best to discuss this with whoever you are hiring. Laying out all the details beforehand is the best thing you can do to make sure you know exactly what you are getting and entitled to.
In short, a serious water damage restoration project is not something to take lightly. A home or business is likely your biggest investment and returning it to normal as soon as possible should be a top priority when experiencing these types of issues. A professional restoration company like Water Mold & Fire can get this done in a short amount of time.
