Why It Is Important to Hire an Expert Water Damage Restoration Company

3/17/2021 (Permalink)

Blog Summary: The experts at SERVPRO of Media, PA, offer five points that highlight the importance of hiring an expert water damage restoration company.

Many home and business owners explore the idea of attempting to deal with water damage on their own, especially if their insurance won't cover the damage. However, DIY water restoration is never a good idea. The experts at SERVPRO of Media are here to explain why. 

SERVPRO of Media, PA, has 27 years of experience in water damage restoration and cleanup. With highly-trained specialists and the resources of a national franchise, their team understands what it takes to fully restore a home or business after water damage. 

5 Reasons to Choose an Expert to Restore a Home or Business After Water Damage

 #1: Speed

Water can do an impressive amount of damage very quickly, but it also will continue to do damage until the space is fully dry. Water damage restoration specialists respond to emergencies quickly and get started with the crucial work of pumping, drying, and cleaning immediately. Their tools are specifically designed to remove water and reduce humidity levels fast.

This greatly reduces the risk of secondary damage like rot and mold. Water cleanup and restoration professionals also arrive as an emergency as a team. The advantage of many experienced hands and the right equipment offer a speed advantage that DIY methods can’t match. 

#2: Safety

Just because the damage isn't visible doesn’t mean it is not there. After a water emergency, mold can grow. Mold can grow anywhere, including out of sight. Experts in water damage restoration know what to look for, spotting signs of mold that probably go unnoticed by the average home or business owner. 

Likewise, a professional should always remove mold as it causes health effects. Professionals use special equipment to remove mold and mold spores, leaving the property safe and preventing future growth.  

#3: Cost

Water damage is not just destructive—it can also be expensive. The longer the water sits, the greater and more expensive the damage becomes. Hiring a water damage restoration expert can be the difference between minor restorations, such as repainting, and major rebuilding. In almost every case, it will save money in the long-run.

#4: Advice

Understanding the extent of water damage and the necessary steps for restoration is very difficult without extensive training. It takes years of experience to understand what is worth salvaging and how best to restore things that aren’t. A professional can offer that expertise. 

#5: Insurance Claims

An experienced water restoration specialist not only understands how best to mitigate water damage to a property, but they also know how to lessen the cost of that process. By helping clients deal with insurance companies, experts in water damage restoration can help maximize claim payouts and minimize expenses.
