Why Should You Use a Water Restoration Company?
This is an excellent question! While attempting to restore damage yourself may seem like a cost saving, it can become a long-term expense in the end. Why? Well, trained water restoration contractors adhere to a strict set of remediation guidelines. Examples of such certifications: Clean Trust (IICRC), ASCR, WLI, or WLS. These indicate that the company and the technicians all have extensive training in the science of water damage and clean-up, with a keen eye for safety and utilizing preventative removal methods to ensure there are no future damage issues, such as mold.
Moreover, you will want to choose a company with many years of experience. Personal recommendations from your insurance agent, friends or neighbors may help in deciding. Finally, ensure the contractor follows the IICRC S500 standards for professional water damage restoration. This standard is for the safety and health of your family, property and insurance needs.
