CARLSBAD, CA, April 05, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- In 2011, flood damage in the United States caused economic losses of more than $8 billion. In 2010, fires caused more than $11.6 billion in property damage. Each year, floods, fires and other natural disasters combine to create catastrophic financial problems for home and property owners across the country. This expense can be greatly increased if the wrong contractor or restoration specialist is chosen. In some cases, poor restoration can cause irreparable damage to possessions and homes.
Superior Restoration, a San Diego-based water damage
, fire and mold remediation company, has prepared four tips for selecting a reputable restoration company. Superior Restoration recommends taking the following precautions before hiring a water, fire or mold restoration company:
- Talk with the Better Business Bureau- The Better Business Bureau is a great resource for finding problems with restoration and other companies. Only work with legitimate companies that hold a good standing with the BBB. Better Business Bureau accredited companies are an even safer choice.
- Ask for References- Many restoration companies will provide references and testimonials from past clients. Check these references and talk with past clients when possible. Past clients can provide insight into the type of service and quality of work performed by a restoration company.
- Get an Estimate (In Writing If Possible)- Always get an estimate before restoration work begins. The estimate should include both expected charges and an estimated completion time. Estimates sometimes need to change as the project progresses, but any changes should be approved before the additional work commences.
- Ask for a Contract- Make sure you have a written contract signed before work starts. This will protect both the client and the restoration company in case of a dispute or problem. Store the contract in a safe location and refer to it if problems arise during the restoration process.
"These tips can't eliminate the damage caused by floods, fires or earthquakes," says Gabe Prieto, president of Superior Restoration. "But they can help homeowners to get the help they need to rebuild their lives after an emergency."
