If you ever experience a fire and water event that damages your home, do you know who you would call? In the aftermath of a flood or house fire, every homeowner should know how to react and who to call to deal with the situation as safely and quickly as possible. A fire and water restoration insurance contractor is a great choice, as they are experienced with dealing with the insurance industry, as well as fire and water restoration.
Why Can’t I Do It Myself?
After a basement flood or a small fire in one room of your home, you may feel as though you can take care of the damage by yourself. However, no matter how easy a task may look to clean up, many issues may arise if you try to move forward without any help. A fire and water damage restoration contractor is your best choice on who to call for help, as they are there to inspect the damage and where the event came from. For instance, a basement flood could be the result of a broken pipe, and the contractors would safely and promptly take care of the problem. Also, the contractors are there to help with all restoration, including removing excess water, making any necessary repairs, and removing or fixing any damaged carpeting, furniture, or appliances.
In the event of a severe flood or house fire, you don’t want to be the one to try to resolve the problem, as many safety issues can arise. A flooded room is an extremely hazardous place when wires are submerged, as they can electrocute someone if they are not careful. Also, flood waters may contain sewage, chemicals, and other hazards- so it is best to leave the work to the professionals.
The Right Tools
A large amount of water is very difficult to remove by yourself without the proper tools. Water restoration contractors have the proper industrial-strength fans and dehumidifiers to remove moisture from the room and provide fresh air, which is an essential step in preventing mold growth after a flood. Vacuums are also needed to remove all of the water completely so that repairs can get started before the flood damages more of your home.
Deal With Insurance Companies
In addition to providing the help you need to restore your home, fire and water restoration contractors also deal with insurance companies. Many homeowners don’t have insurance claims very often- in fact, most only have one claim every 26 years. Restoration contractors, on the other hand, have at least one insurance claim every day. Your contractor knows the ins and outs of the insurance industry, and are there to guide you through every step of the cleanup and restoration process.
