After the Disaster: Tips for Selecting a Damage Restoration Professional

TAMARAC, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 06/18/10 -- PuroClean, a property damage restoration company with more than 300 franchise offices nationwide, urges homeowners to take precautions when contracting for restoration services.

"Water and fire damage restoration is a very specialized field and it requires a high-level of professionalism and efficiency," states Steve Leger, Executive Vice President of Operations for PuroClean. "In fact, professionalism is key in selecting a company to restore your home, business or other property after an emergency."

Leger offers the following tips to home and business owners who need to hire a damage restoration professional:

  • A Focus on Damage Restoration. Choose a professional who specializes in water and fire damage restoration services. A restoration professional's focus on damage restoration services makes it more likely that he or she will spot problems that a general contractor might miss.

  • Request the Right References. Checking references is always important when you contract for damage restoration services, so request references from customers who had damage similar to yours, ask for "before and after" photographs and consider visiting recent customers' properties to assess the contractor's work.

  • Put Quality Ahead of Price. When it comes to restoring your property after water or fire damage, don't put price ahead of quality. Work within your insurance coverage and your budget but remember that cutting corners on the original repair can result in additional expense later.

Finally, confirm that the contractor you select is licensed and insured, and obtain a signed contract that clearly defines the work to be done for the price charged before any work is started, Leger adds.

PuroClean specializes in property emergency services. Their certified technicians help families and businesses overcome the devastating setbacks caused by water, fire, mold and other conditions resulting in property damage.

In addition, PuroClean helps clients resolve their insurance claims quickly and efficiently. Local PuroClean professionals work with all insurance companies and bill directly, saving customers paperwork and time. Since PuroClean professionals respond 24 hours a day, they often reduce claim costs by 20 percent or more, according to Leger.
