A restoration company is a fantastic help for residential and commercial property owners. However, before hiring one, you should make sure you leave your property in the hands of real professionals.
Check for certifications. A restoration company must be certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification and carry additional credentials for specific restoration areas (e.g. mold restoration, fire restoration etc.).
Ask about the services the company is able to offer. There are different types of disasters that can damage a property (fire, water, toxic waste etc.) and companies are typically specialized only in some of them. Besides, regardless this aspect, you must ensure that the company can handle every part of the restoration process (inspection, remediation, reconstruction, clean up).
Also, make sure to calculate your available budget and ask for a price estimate before signing the contract. Ask for recommendations and check the company`s reputation.
Finally yet importantly, make sure the company provides emergency services, which means it is ready to start the restoration project anytime instead of putting you on a waiting list.
There are also a few important aspects on what to avoid when hiring a restoration company. The first red flag is if the company asks you to pay a large sum of money upfront. It is not uncommon to pay 10% to cover materials, but anything higher should make you turn to another contractor. Another red flag is the missing license. A company that is not ready to offer you its credentials is not reliable.
Finally yet importantly, never agree to work with a contractor that is not so willing to make a contract, because the risks are too big. You are already vulnerable after the disaster that damaged your property, and additional problems are the last thing you need.
Restoration businesses are very profitable these days and have a great growth potential.
