Choosing a restoration company for water damage or mould damage from a broken water heater or flooding issue is a gruelling and difficult process. How do you tell which of the multitudes of companies out there is a quality home restorer and will properly mitigate the catastrophic damages? An experienced home remodeler who specialises in water or mould mitigation is worth every penny to ensure the job is done correctly; otherwise you may have even more problems in the future from the damage caused by water or mould. Finding an honest, caring restoration professional who will work smoothly with your insurance company may seem daunting, but the following are important notions to consider when choosing the right water loss company:
Don’t Always Pick the Biggest Name: Just because a corporation promotes themselves well in advertising doesn’t necessarily mean they provide the best service. It means they pay a lot for advertising. Maybe that money should have been spent on hiring a more qualified technician to dry your wet carpet instead of pay per click campaigns. Check a popular flood restoration notes.
Don’t Go Cheap: You remember the old adage “You get what you pay for”? Yeah, that still hold true even in the service industry. There pricing may be the cheapest out there, but what about the quality? There’s water ALL over your WOOD floor, do you want to take a chance that the cheapest guy out there got all the water evaporated with their rapid structural drying?
Personal Reviews: Check out those online reviews but MORE importantly, perform some online research on your local water damage restoration companies. Do they seem like they actually care if your home is correctly mitigated of water or mould? Or are they just looking for a quick sale instead of a long term, quality relationship with the local community. Just because a company has 200 reviews doesn’t make them the best. It just makes them heavily reviewed. Best to check out their BBB rating, if they’re even accredited!
The People: This is the real deal breaker. Give them a call. Talk to one of the staff; see firsthand how experienced and friendly they are. If they don’t sound experienced, do you really want them working on your HOME? How about their demeanour? Are you sure the unhappy, sour technician who hates is job is really going to care how your home reconstruction, water loss or mould remediation job fairs in the end? If I take pride in my work and love my job, it’s going to reflect when I speak with people.
