After your home in New Milford suffers water damage, immediate attention is needed to address the resulting damage plus mitigate future problems. So, although you must get a team in now to start cleaning, it is more important to hire the right remediation company. When approached by any company for water restoration services, do your homework.
A little research goes a long way. Prequalifying a contractor prior to making a phone call is the best way to ensure that you will be contacting a good restoration contractor to do the job. Call friends and neighbors. Utilize the internet; websites provide a wealth of information in a few minutes.
Definitely hire a local team. One of the biggest hurdles after a water damage emergency is being able to communicate clearly throughout the project. Your local team will be available by phone, messaging, email and face-to-face. More options mean less time wasted and a faster resolution.
A hometown company will also be much more familiar with limitations and permit processes in your municipality. Not only will they be licensed and insured, but your locals will also know any legislative hurdles to completing your project on time. Plus, buying locally means less corporate infrastructure, and more tax money left available to enhance our community.
A company that offers a wide range of water damage restoration services including rapid response time is your best choice. A company with more options is more likely to have had training in many areas. Mold remediation, experienced carpenters, and a dedicated insurance claims manager are examples of a full service contractor.
Ask for a local referral from trusted friends and neighbors who’ve used water damage restoration services themselves. Double check their website plus third party online reviews.
The water damage restoration industry is completely unregulated, which means that anybody could start a water damage restoration business. If the company you’re looking for has certifications through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification then you know that they are professionals who are held to the highest standards.
A company that has experience working with insurance companies will be able to expedite your claims and reimbursement. Experienced contractors can submit claims on your behalf plus negotiate the details of your claim directly with your insurance company.
Choose a company that uses the latest, most sophisticated equipment for water extraction, structural drying, dehumidification, and mold remediation. Using a professional team with professional equipment could remove up to twice the amount of water in the first 24 hours.
Finally, do not choose a business based solely on their prices. Additionally, insurance companies will often suggest a water restoration company for the lowest cost, so be wary. Don’t let them pressure you into using a sub-par company just because that company is the cheapest option.
