If you owned a house, wouldn’t you be distraught if it was destroyed in a flood or a storm? Your dream house, shattered and standing there with its pieces missing… and there’s nothing you can do.
Or can you?
Your dream house can be restored to its former glory in just a couple of days! But how?
You probably have a million questions like:
How will the water be removed from the house?
Is my house now vulnerable to mold?
Is there anything I can do to clean up the mess?
Should I look into home restoration companies?
To be honest, it is better to stay out of the house altogether. Here’s why:
- If a fire broke out in your house but was put out, you are still at risk of inhaling toxic fumes.
- If your house was destroyed by flood water, you can get affected by the contaminants in it. Check out our blog “Understanding Water Damage Risks” to know more about different types of water and how they can affect your health
- If your house was destroyed by a wind storm, then there’s a high possibility that the structure is hanging by a thread and the wrong step can bring debris crashing down on your head
Following are five reasons why you should hire a home restoration company for the cleanup:
1.Stop Damage Early
After a flood, getting the water out is the only thing you should be concerned about. Cleanup companies have large equipment that sucks up the water in no time and then use a dehumidifier and fans to dry the area. It’s important to get rid of the water in the first 24 hours, or it will seep into the foundation and spread mold in multiple areas.
2.Protect Yourself and Your Family
As mentioned earlier, there are too many health concerns when it comes to flood water, fire smoke and construction debris. There are water parasites, asthma and numerous other allergic reactions that can make you severely sick and even cause death. Nowadays, home restoration companies offer emergency cleanup services, so make the call and wait outside.
Cleanup on such a large scale requires high quality and professional equipment that can get the job done in hours rather than days. Depending on the type of damage that was caused to your house, it can take a couple of days to clean and deodorize the house. A good service will be efficient and complete the work within the period provided.
It all falls down to the equipment these companies use. Your household broom, vacuum cleaner, bucket and mop are not enough to get the job done. You will be saving a lot of money on numerous things. Such companies also offer specialty cleaning services that restore your furniture, decontaminate everything and even restore areas of the house.
5.Handling Your Insurance Claim
It can be quite overwhelming to deal with all this mess and it’s understandable that you will be busy, making sure that your valuable belongings are safe and secure. These companies can help you with the claim process. From receipts to before and after pictures, and everything else required for a claim, the company will make sure that your insurance company receives it all.
