Okay, so in your upstairs shower, the drains break and you’re stuck hip deep in the untreated sewage. Who are you calling?
Yellow Books are replete with businesses promoting water damage rehabilitation or reconstruction in every area. The issue is that there are no federal rules about who can and can not perform this form of task, so any redneck with a mop and a shop-vac can stick a sign on the side of his truck promoting water repair and claim he’s in the business. In reality, preferring this guy to function at home will make a poor problem worse and cost thousands of extra dollars to fix.Checkout Jersey City Water Damage Restoration for more info.
There is, luckily, a response. As the unofficial regulatory body for the water damage rehabilitation industry, the Institute for Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Qualification (IICRC) was founded 30 years ago. For certain organizations who do this form of job, and who want to have a measure of credibility, they have developed rules, protocols, and practices.
Choosing an IICRC-certified organization would guarantee that they are approved, bonded, and protected, 24/7 on request, and staffed by highly qualified technical technicians specialized in the latest tools and procedures for water damage repair. They will provide a wide range of facilities, from water extraction and drying, to carpet washing and mold remediation, to structural maintenance and restoration, to address all facets of your repair needs.
To make sure what is and is not protected by your homeowners agreement, they will even be eligible to act as liaison with the insurance provider or compensation adjuster.
