What to do if Your Marketing Office has Water Damage



Water damage can be a costly problem and left untreated can lead to further significant damage to your Marketing Office and can cause the growth of hazardous molds.  The only solution to water damage is to hire a water damage restoration company.  When hiring a water damage restoration company there are a number of questions you should ask to ensure the work is carried out competently.

Is the company licensed? This helps with resolving legal issues which might arise. Not all states require licensing in this field, check with the state for clarification and if so be sure to only hire licensed companies.

Is the water damage restoration company insured? Any further damage caused by the company to the property and not necessary to the restoration is the responsibility of the company’s insurer and should not be a cost to you so make sure the company has insurance.

Do the company’s employee’s have the necessary certifications? The I.I.C.R.C. (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification) ensures technicians are properly trained to carry out water damage restoration so this is certainly something to ask of the restoration company.

What experience do the company and it’s employee’s have? You will want to be sure that the job is not to big or specialized when you consider which company to hire. Do your own research too. A quick search on line should provide reviews of any reputable company. Don’t be afraid to ask for references of previous work done by the company.

How available is the company and it’s technicians to you? The longer water damage is left untreated the greater the damage becomes and so the need for a quick response from the company is a consideration when choosing which company to hire.

Always when having any work done it is a good idea to look around at different restoration companies. If you know someone who has had restoration done ask if they were satisfied with the company they hired or their opinion about others as they might have looked at a few themselves. Insurance companies are also a good source for recommendations. With a number of companies in mind and asking these questions of them you can go a long way toward successful restoration caused by water damage.
