Water damage and flooding can happen to your business from severe weather or from your sprinkler system or water used to put out a fire. After the damage occurs, it’s important to act quickly to get the water out of your commercial building. Waiting can lead to worse damage like mold growth, mildew, and further structural damage. More damage means it will take more time and money to restore and rebuild your property. And with a business, you’ll want to reopen as soon as possible.
Things to consider while selecting damage restoration company:
Do they have a team for emergency response?
Water damage can occur at any time of day, causing a water mitigation company to be required during the weekend at odd hours of the night, not only during normal business hours, Monday through Friday. A competent firm will respond to you immediately and get to the scene quickly so that they can assist you in evaluating the damage and creating an action plan. If a business isn’t open 24/7, maybe they’re not right for you.
Are they qualified and certified, and are they insured?
A company’s owners can be licenced and qualified, but make sure their entire workforce is also trained and certified, as well as insured, before you employ a company. A well-trained team ensures that everyone sent over by the organisation will be sure to send you top results and work of high quality. Asking for evidence of certificates and licences is okay. An approved restoration company will be proud and send them right over with their certifications. Only hiring an insured restoration specialist is important to emphasise. The company’s insurance will cover the loss if something goes wrong with the house or property during the repair process.
Asking for a reference is key.
Asking your neighbors, family, and friends is a great start in learning who to hire. However, it’s equally important to ask that water damage restoration service for a list of previous customers and clients. Just like with the credentials, a good professional company will gladly provide you with a list fast. Common questions to ask previous clients are: What was the scope of the project? Did they do a satisfactory job completing the work? Did they finish within the estimated time frame and budget? How nice were the people to work with? Was the company’s quality of work top-notch?
Make sure that the water damage service first conducts a damage assessment.
Never employ an on-the-spot water restoration company. Have them come to your commercial property and do a damage report on-site. It is probably unreliable for a business that promises fast work over the phone before seeing the harm. To truly understand the nature of the project, a competent company would realise that they need to see how much damage and what sort of damage there is.
