Flood Restoration Companies
Floods are one of the most common natural disasters in the
United States, and as evidenced by news reports, can occur at any place, and at
any time. Whether they be the result of
heavier than average rainfall over a given area during a given period, backed
up sewer or drainage systems, or a New Orleans style levee break, the damage
caused by flooding is large in scope and usually extremely destructive even in
the lesser cases. If you find yourself
the victim of a flood disaster, it is important to know what to do, and who you
can turn to.
Unfortunately, when it comes to water restoration or flood
restoration jobs, there are no government regs in place to cover who can or
cannot do this sort of work. As a
result, you have everybody and their brother armed with a mop and a fan
claiming to be a water damage restoration company. And if you choose the wrong person to work on
your home, the end result could be thousands of extra dollars in repair costs,
and additional heartache for your family.
Fortunately, the flood damage restoration industry has done
an admirable job of policing itself, with the formation of the Institute for
Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC). This unofficial governing body establishes
standards, procedures, and certifications within the industry, offering
legitimacy to those companies which carry their seal, as well as peace of mind
to the homeowner seeking flood damage assistance.
The IICRC seal will guarantee that the company is licensed,
bonded, and insured, available 24/7 with highly qualified technicians
proficient on the latest equipment and techniques, with a full range of flood
and water damage restoration services to assist you and your family. Call today for a free estimate.
