Choosing a restoration company for water damage or mold damage from a broken water heater or flooding issue is a grueling 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 specializes in water or mold 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 mold. 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 company:
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 mold? 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 demeanor? Are you sure the unhappy, sour technician who hates is job is really going to care how your home reconstruction, water loss or mold 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.
Any catastrophic damage to a home requiring renovation is a stressful and arduous process. Take the time to research the best home restoration and remodeling companies in the local community. The end result generated from choosing a quality home damage repair company will certainly guarantee positive results as well as peace of mind.
