Ask These Important Questions Before Hiring a Water Damage Company

Water damage is a big part of many homes and can be a very difficult thing to handle if you do not have the right experience. Knowing what questions to ask when it comes to a water restoration company can help you figure out what company is going to work for you.

What Experience Do You Have?

The first question to ask when looking to hire a water damage company is to ask what their overall experience is. This can the things like how long have they been in business, how many homes they have restored, and what sort of restoration they have done as well. This can help you determine if you are going to be well suited for one another and if the company you have chosen is going to be able to help you with your issue or not.

What Type of Restoration Methods Do they Use?

Another thing to keep in mind is to talk about what sort of restoration methods do they commonly use. Do they work to dry out the home or the area, do they work to replace those items ad materials that are destroyed or damaged, or do they use other methods? Do they use ozone machines to remove the smell, and so much more? This is going to help you determine if you agree with the methods that are going to be used. Industry estimates by Secura Insurance state that up to 14,000 people experience water damage each day. Moreover, 98% of basements will experience water damage in their lifetime.

Do They Work With Your Insurance?

In cases of flood, if you do not have flood insurance you are not likely going to claim these costs on your insurance. If you do have flood insurance you can claim it. If you are filing for water damage associated with something like a fire and the water that was used to stop the fire, this may be an expense that you can claim.

The overall cost of the restoration is a factor that should be considered to help make sure that you are going to be able to pay for the restoration and to ensure that you are happy with the overall job done. The cost of the job from the water restoration company should not deter you from hiring anyone, but is certainly a factor that should be considered when deciding what service and what company is going to work for you and that is going to be able to help you get your home back in great shape.
