Tips to choose the right water damage restoration company
According to The American Insurance Association, water leaks lead to property losses worth over $10 billion annually. Whether the cause of the damage is natural disasters or leaks within the property, it is important to hire the right professional help to restore the property. What are the factors that a property owner must consider when choosing a water damage restoration company? SERVPRO shares some tips below.
- Immediate response to disaster
Water leaks lead to property damage that can compound over a while. Therefore, when choosing a specialist to help recover from a water damage event at the earliest, property owners must choose a company that has a swift emergency response. A water damage restoration company like SERVPRO is available 24x7 for its clients because it is proven that the sooner the response to a water damage event the lesser the damage will be. A company that can respond quickly offers peace of mind and immense confidence to a property owner.
- Licensed, Insured, well-trained team
When researching water damage restoration companies, property owners must check if the company is licensed and certified by IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification). This would ensure the company follows the highest standards of restoration processes. Additionally, the company must be properly licensed and insured in the state. A team that is constantly upgrading its skill-set and following the latest methods of cleaning is the best bet.
- Reviews and references
When a water disaster occurs, it barely leaves time to research and identify the right company. At a time like that, one of the smartest ways to choose a water damage restoration is to ask for references from family, friends, and neighbors. A locally owned and operated company often has enough and trustworthy reviews online and offline.
- Detailed estimate and plan for repairs
A professional water damage restoration company carefully assesses and documents the damage done and the necessary repairs. This estimate helps property owners make the best decisions on how to proceed and enables them to make insurance claims. A methodical and transparent water damage restoration process with reliable cost estimates is necessary for a satisfactory experience.
- Navigate insurance claims
An experienced water damage restoration company is likely to cooperate or have a pre-existing relationship with several insurance companies. An estimate created by the specialists helps in filing insurance claims in a timely and simple manner. In a time of crisis like this, every property owner needs a restoration specialist who can help with this potentially frustrating documentation and claim process.
- Latest state-of-the-art equipment and techniques
When a water damage event occurs, the latest equipment not only accelerates the restoration process but also ensures accuracy. The state-of-the-art equipment and techniques ensure that no moisture is left hidden in corners and crevices as it could be a potential cause for mold growth. The advanced technology that companies like SERVPRO possess also enables the restoration of important documents, artworks, and photographs that have been damaged by water.

Every home has been created by its owners with utmost effort and love. When a professional water damage restoration team like SERVPRO enters the premises of a client whose property has been damaged, the foremost thought is to respect every corner and content of the house.
