Unfortunately, disasters and catastrophes happen - and just as unfortunate, sometimes these disasters and catastrophes create damage to your home or business making it unlivable and unusable until the issue can be addressed and repaired. Fortunately, there are restoration service companies that specialize in the repair and restoration of your home or business so it can be used again.
Restoration services that you may need include:
- Fire damage
- Remove soot and smoke damage
- Remove smoke odor
- Structural repairs
- Cleaning of items and belongings
- Board up services – securing windows, doors, and other points of entry
- Water damage
- Water cleanup and removal or extraction
- Water restoration – repair of damage caused by water intrusion
- Mold remediation
- Safe removal and remediation of mold
- Repair of surfaces effected
- Removal of toxic substances
- Biohazard cleanup
- Homicide/suicide/crime scenes
- Chemical spills
- Natural disaster cleanup
- Snow/ice storms
Restoration companies can address any of these issues, and sometimes more, in any part of the structure effected – from roof to basement.
Sometimes, the restoration services can overlap. For example, storms can often cause both water damage and create a situation where mold can grow and thrive. Fires often lead to water damage due to firefighting efforts. This is why a restoration service is a good option in situations such as are listed above – they can fully address the situation, as opposed to just part of it.
Calling the restoration service immediately is often an option as many offer 24/7 emergency services. They understand that situations such as these don't always happen during normal business hours. Fires and storms and other emergencies happen at all hours of the day and night. The sooner that they can get in and assess the situation and start the clean up efforts, the less damage that can continue to occur. The longer something sits in adverse conditions, the more damage that can occur.
Restoration service companies often work with your insurance company, and insurance companies often have suggestions for which companies to use, and the restoration company can make it so that payment can come directly from insurance company.
Regardless of your specific situation, you can rest assured that hiring a restoration company to repair and remediate the structure in question will make things easier all the way around. Restoration service contractors have the knowledge and skills to address the situation safely and effectively in a timely fashion.
