Who Not to Use for Water Damage Cleanup
Just because you heard a neighbor had a relatively sound experience with a Macomb water Damage Company doesn't mean you will. One review does not a company vet and there is no substitute for doing a bit of research on Google, Yelp and Yellow Pages.
Only choose a Macomb water damage company that is IICRC certified and insured. If you needed a surgical treatment you wouldn't choose a veterinarian because they have experience with surgery. Why then hire a handyman, plumber or carpet cleaner for something if not done correctly, will have considerable consequences.
Signs You Hired the Wrong Water Damage Company
They pull up in a vehicle that looks run down and haggard. A Macomb water damage company that has old worn out vehicles will also have old worn out equipment and you need the latest state of the art equipment to efficiently dry out your water damaged property.
The technicians are incapable of instilling peace of mind as they evaluated your water damaged property. Communication is very telling and someone who knows there trade will represent their industry with a measure of knowledge that should impress. If they are not able to answer simple questions and stumble over their words with noticeable novice maturity in their field, 'buyer beware'.
They do not explain the scope of damage being guided with scientific instruments. Merely walking around the water damaged room observing the damages with the naked eye will not identify the complete scope of damage and should concern you. The best Macomb water damage company will be quick to use industry standard meters for discovering the presence of water and addressing things thast the naked eye could never see.
Smells linger even after the water damage cleanup has been completed or worse, the smells are getting worse. Foul odors related to the presence of bacteria, molds and microorganisms are almost immediately eliminated from the water damaged environment during and after the cleanup.
Eyes are red and watering, noses itch and respiratory infections have been occurring. Bugs, spiders and creepy crawlies are being found in large numbers in the basement. The list goes on and these results are predictable because when water damage cleanup is not guided using industry standard instruments, the detection process is incomplete leaving viable contamination.
Their price was the cheapest and they gave you the best deal. While there may be a chance you got the best Macomb water damage company and because you are a good negotiator you got a great deal. There is also the possibility they were cheaper because they are doing less than is needed. The dentist who cleans your teeth is cheaper than the one that also includes a root canal but if you needed the extra service and did not get it you are not comparing apples with apples.
The lower price may be because things are left undone that are required. If you cleanup after a sewer backup but don't sanitize or power wash than your price will be cheaper, but your service incomplete and germs will likely affect the entire home. What if they are cheaper because they don't follow-up with you if there is a problem, because they were already paid?
It could also be because they are frantic because they haven't had a job in a week due to a poor reputation and need to be cut-throat to get the next job.
Do not use the water damage company your insurance company recommends. Often the insurance carriers have developed relationships with contractors that put the interest of the insurance company above yours. This is never a good thing as you want a Macomb water damage company that is putting your interest above the interest of the insurance carriers. If water has damaged your floor and you need a new one, you don't want their contractor saying its fine. If your carpet is damaged beyond the scope of restoration you deserve new not a cleaning. Often if you take the time to research the online reviews of the recommended company you will discover, no one likes them except your insurance company. Your adjuster would never think of using them in their own home, but they are eager to have you use them because they are working for them and not you.
What Macomb Water Damage Company to Use
Choose a Macomb water damage company that specializes in a full range of water damage restoration services. Do they provide service for all types of water damage that exist from fresh water flooding to raw sewage backups?
Choose a water damage company that owns their own equipment and does not need to rent it from home depot or an equipment rental company. This would be an obvious sign the water damage company is a new start up and do you want to be their first project? Renting equipment means it is not your own and the previous use of it may have been a project that will cross contaminate your property.
Choose a water damage company that is available when you need them for your water damage emergency. Stay away from water damage companies that expect you to wait several days as contamination and additional damage will occur. The sooner the water damage cleanup starts the quicker the drying and restoration will be complete. Each hour standing water persist it is absorbing deeper into the building materials increasing the dry time and energy necessary for restoration.
Select a Macomb water damage company that can present local and recent referrals. Restoration companies should have completed jobs in your area and asking for a referral will not be a problem.
Lastly, select a water damage company that makes you feel confident in their knowledge and ability. Selecting a good water damage company is like choosing a pair of shoes. If they feel right and there is no discomfort during walking you probably found a good pair for your feet. If the contractor is overconfident, doesn't answer questions without a belligerent comment and is not courteous, move on.
