The Importance of Hiring a Flood Cleanup Contractor to Carry Out Your Restoration Work

Friday, October 21st, 2011

Water damage cleanup may look easy, but trust us when we say that it is not. In fact, attempting a flood cleanup on your own could be disastrous. This is why hiring a professional flood restoration company is a much better idea for you and your home.

So what are the biggest advantages of enlisting the help of an expert water remediation company?

  1. Knowledge: Did you know that there are three different categories of water? Category 1 is the least harmful and includes water from a broken pipe or overflowing sink. Category 3, however, can damage your property and directly impact your health. Also known as black water, it comes from sources like sewers, seawater, river water, or floodwater and can contain bacteria, fungi, and other health hazards. A professional water damage remediation company has the knowledge and equipment to properly eliminate the stagnant water and sanitize the affected area with various EPA approved chemicals.
  2. Professional Assessment: An expert will be able to assess your water damage cleanup as either Class 1,2,3, or 4 and act accordingly. Class 1 is the least harmful and posses very little threat to your property. Class 3 and 4, however, include heavy moisture absorption, mold growth and serve damage to your property.
  3. Insurance Benefits: A professional restoration company will also help the homeowner with the insurance claims process. Many homeowners who have attempted do-it-yourself restoration have often struggled to recover the costs from their insurance companies, who often dispute some charges as unnecessary costs.
