Things to consider if you own a commercial property and need water restoration services
There are many reasons you might be calling a water remediation company. It might be because of a flood, heavy rain, broken pipes, or possibly water from putting out a fire. These are some scenarios that may occur and you should really consider dialing a water restoration company like SERVPRO of San Diego East immediately. But of course there are some things you should consider way before a water damage has occurred at your commercial establishment.
Water Loss Levels
Here are some things to consider in order to find the right remediation company. First determine the levels of water damage that has occurred at your property. Is the water level inches above the ground? Have you spotted mold? Has the water been present at your property for more than 4 hours? If you answered yes to more than two questions you should consider hiring a restoration company that handles both reconstruction and water extraction.
How much time do you have to lose?
Other factors to consider is time. Not many business owners can afford to have their businesses shut down for an extensive amount of time. It is important to call a remediation company that has a reputation for getting projects completed quickly and correctly. It will also be beneficial to speak to the project manager of your timeline, this way they are able to prioritize your property. You may also want to ask for an estimated timeline that highlights milestones of the main processes being made to your commercial property. Having a timeline will help you better prepare and position yourself for a “Grand Opening.”
Who is your commercial insurance?
A major factor that will heavily influence the decision is the type of property insurance you have. It’s important to know what damages your insurance company covers and what remediation companies they recommend. Insurance companies typically have the best idea in who to hire for a job. Insurance representatives have worked with many remediation companies and have a good idea on which ones will provide the best services.
Standing water will destroy your structure
Even though it is great to be prepared and have a list of companies to call during an emergency; know that having water rested on your property can lead to severe structure damage. It is highly recommend to have the water your property has consumed extracted immediately. If you are not pleased with the initial company you can then hire another one.
