Here Are Some Ways To Vet Potential Companies

After your business in Harrisonville, MO, sees fire, water, sewage, or mold damage choosing the right restoration professionals is one way to ensure your peace of mind. Here are some ways to ensure you choose the right restoration companies.

Check Their Past Work
The best way to check out a restoration company is to look at their previous work. Ask for a list of their previous clients or read online reviews. Check on the most recent projects. Talk to the clients and ask about their experience with the company. Here are some questions that could potentially vet a restoration company:

  • Did the company give you an accurate estimate?
  • Were you satisfied with their work?
  • Was the project completed on time and within your budget?
  • Were there any mistakes?
  • Do you recommend the company?

Verify Their Licenses
Licenses are important in the restoration industry. For intensive jobs that require structural work or plumbing repairs, you will need to have a licensed professional perform the tasks. Choosing a company that is licensed and insured. Additionally, hiring an unlicensed contractor will make you responsible for any issues that occur on your property. In other words, you are responsible for defective work, property damage, or injuries during the restoration project that could occur to their employees, your family or staff. 

Verify Their Certifications
Most people will only ask to see the contractor's license. They will only hold a general contractor's license because there is no specific restoration license. However, most of the fire damage assessment and restoration work is specialized, and the company should have the appropriate certifications for the work they are doing. 

Check Their Insurance
Restoration companies often work directly with a client's insurance adjuster. Therefore, they know a lot about insurance and how important it is. Accidents can happen during a fire damage restoration project, especially if the fire has caused structural integrity problems. To ensure you are adequately protected, ask for proof of insurance.
Choosing the right fire mitigation and restoration professionals can be a challenging task. However, it is also crucial, as they are restoring your property to preloss conditions. 

If you follow these steps, you should find a restoration and remediation professional who can help you make it, "Like it never even happened". SERVPRO of Harrisonville/Belton/Raymore is always there for your restoration, remediation, and mitigation needs.
