No one expects water damage to happen at their home, but when it does, it can create a real mess and cause a lot of damage to your home and belongings. Depending on the extent of the damage, sometimes it becomes necessary to consider water damage cleanup companies to do the job. While there are many reputable water damage cleanup companies in business, there are a few things to think about before hiring a company to do the work in your home.
- 24/7 Availability. Damage caused by water doesn’t always happen during normal business hours and you need to know that water damage cleanup companies can be at your home when you need them. The longer the water sits, the more damage it can cause, and you want to be sure that the company you choose is available to begin the cleanup process right away.
- There is no better recommendation than the ones we receive from friends and neighbors. Talk to friends and recent customers to see if they were satisfied with the work that was done. Be sure to ask the water damage cleanup company you are considering for references and read online reviews.
- Certified and Experienced Technicians. Technicians who do this type of work should have an Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certificate to ensure that they have the proper training and education. Be sure to enquire about what type of restoration the company specializes in. You don’t want to hire a company that typically deals with fire damage when you are dealing with water damage.
- Licensed, Bonded and Insured. When considering water damage cleanup companies, be sure to find out if they are licensed, bonded and insured in order to protect both of you in the event that an injury or other problem arises.
