Water damage in your home can cause a number of problems, including mold growth. Because of this, properly addressing water damage in a timely manner is crucial. Mold and water damage can wreak havoc on your home, eating away at building materials and compromising your indoor air quality.
While you may be tempted to try and clean up your home yourself, the only way to truly ensure that your home is restored to its pre-water damaged state is to enlist the help of a certified mold and water damage specialist. To find a qualified remediation expert, follow these guidelines:
Certification: The first thing you need to do when looking for a mold and water damage specialist is to see if they are certified in the fields of inspection and restoration.
• For damage specialists, check with the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification.
• For mold remediation, it is best to choose a contractor related to various organizations, like the National Association of Mold Remediators and Inspectors.
Experience: Make sure your mold remediator or water damage expert has plenty of experience in their field. These tasks both require a ton of training and experience.
Quotes: After an inspection of your home, be sure to ask for a quote. Not all mold outbreaks and water damage problems are created equal. Some require a day to clean, others several days. Because of this, the price of water damage restoration and mold remediation will vary depending on the severity of your specific problem.
You should try to get quotes from at least 3 different specialists.
Ask Questions: Do they guarantee their work? Do they offer any type of warranty? Do they isolate rooms? Do they take air samples? If so, where do they send them? Is the laboratory reputable?
