8 Ways to Make Sure You Have The Right Water Damage Crew

Aug 4, 2008
When your home has been flooded because of a plumbing break or a natural disaster, the one thing in the world you want most is to have it cleaned up and repaired as soon as possible. This will usually be an impossible task to accomplish by your self without some professional help. Home flooding is something that usually does not happen to a homeowner more than once in a lifetime if they are lucky, so it might be confusing as to what you should expect from a water damage team.

If you have home insurance that covers all types of flooding, and hopefully you do, your insurance company could handle the hiring of a water damage business for you. Since they have to deal with these sorts of issues all the time, they will likely know who the best company is to get right away. If you do not have insurance or the insurance company leaves the hiring up to you, then there are definitely things you want to know before you hire someone.

1. Will they come out immediately to inspect your home and give an estimate no matter what time of day?
2. Can they handle specific problems concerning clean up of toxic elements that can be in your home from a natural disaster flood?
3. Will they help remove items from your home before cleanup?
4. Are they expertly trained, licensed, and insured themselves?
5. Do they have the most up to date equipment that professionals need?
6. Can they take care of all issues that you will have including mold remediation?
7. Do they have a good history of satisfied customers?
8. Are their workers trained and have had a background check performed on them?
9. Will they come back and follow up on their work to make sure there are no problems?

These are the most important questions that you should ask a water damage company before you allow them in to do clean up and repairs in your home. Water damage must be handled correctly and quickly to prevent as much damage as possible. The longer water is in your home the larger risk there is for damage like mold, floor warping, and structural damage.

A good water damage team will respond to your call as quickly as possible and will soon be able to tell you how bad things are and what it will entail to get the clean up done and repairs made. They should also be able to give you an approximate estimate of how much it will cost you or your insurance company.
