The 4 Questions You Need To Ask Before Choosing A Flood Restoration Company

This rainy Spring is prime time for flood disasters in Michigan. Rainwater runoff, rising rivers, and other weather-related calamities have wrecked havoc across the state. It pays to be prepared! Choosing a flood restoration company before you have a flood emergency will save you lots of time, a huge headache, and big $$$.

Before you decide who to trust with restoring your home from a flood, make sure you know the answer to these 4 important questions:

  1. Are they certified? Certification through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (the IICRC) is a sure sign that this company has the most up-to-date training, equipment, and expertise to handle all mitigation scenarios. Nothing is worse than paying an amateur to do a low-quality job and ending up with additional problems down the road.
  2. Do they offer a wide range of services? Are they mold remediation experts? National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA)-certified HVAC cleaners? If they’re not able to complete these basic services, they may not be adequately equipped to handle your flood emergency.
  3. Are they available 24/7? A mitigation company worth its salt will understand that response time is crucial when it comes to floods. In a damp, untreated area (such as a wet basement), mold can start growing within two days. Luckily, state-of-the-art drying equipment can, in many cases, completely dry a home in as little as 36 hours.
  4. Are they reputable? Get referrals: Ask your friends, ask your family. You want to make sure you are hiring professionals for your water emergency.

Once you find a qualified company, save their phone number in a convenient place. If you are concerned with water damage in your home, check out our 24/7 emergency restoration page for more information.
