When a pipe bursts or a storm leaves a home extremely flooded. Getting a water damage restoration services from a reputable company should be priority. Unfortunately, this industry is not regulated, and many people out there pose as professionals or say “they can do a cheaper job”. Homeowners should be cautious of who they hire and make sure they are a certified and trained technician that will not do more harm than good. Before selecting a company to handle the job, keep in mind these points to overall help throughout the hiring process.
- Make sure to only hire certified professionals to perform water damage restoration services. Certified technicians make an effort to get the best training and take their job seriously. A good sign that a professional is up to date and trained is when they have a certification through the institute of inspection, cleaning and restoration (IICRC). The IICRC operates with certified local technicians making it finding a professional without any headaches.
- Choose a company that offers a range of water damage restoration services. This is the easiest way to determine the expertise of a firm. Mold remediation, for example is often needed given how quickly mold can set in. This is a standard field of knowledge that advanced technicians should posses. If a company doesn’t offer mold remediation, it may not be prepared for other job settings.
- When a company is available for you 24/7 it’s a very good sign. If a firm is not able to start right away there aren’t ready to handle the job.
These guidelines should help homeowners find a technician that can be trusted and is equipped to do the job right away. A storm or other disaster is hard enough to deal with, and a remediation company should do everything in its power to make this difficult process easier. –www.iicrc.org
