5 Mistakes Homeowners Make When Selecting Water Damage Restoration Companies

April 10, 2015

Homeowners must act quickly when a water damage issue occurs within their home. But in their haste to resolve the problem, they often make mistakes in selecting unsuitable companies to complete the water damage restoration work. This can lead to additional expense and time being wasted in fixing the initial problem. To ensure that homeowners across West Vancouver avoid the mistakes others have made in this process, the experienced water damage experts at Malkin Cleaners are now outlining the five mistakes homeowners make when selecting Vancouver water damage restoration companies.

  1. Selecting without Research

It’s important to research the company carefully before making a selection. Through a quick search online, homeowners can find out valuable information about the companies within their local area. This can help them avoid many of the mistakes others have made in selecting unsuitable firms for the required work.

  1. Choosing a Company without Proven Water Removal Experience

It’s important the company chosen has decades of experience utilizing the latest water removal techniques. Only those with years of market experience will be able to respond adeptly should they encounter a challenge in the cleaning process. It’s the reason this level of experience is highly valued within specialized cleaning work.

  1. Choosing a Firm without Emergency Services

One of the leading mistakes homeowners make is selecting a firm with a long turnaround period in terms of their call out times. Many firms take one to two days to arrive at the client’s home to assess the water damage issue. By this time, the homeowner could find that their property has been significantly damaged by water, causing their expenditure to rise. Choosing a company with specialist emergency services ensures the firm has the experience and the emergency repair tools to resolve the water damage issue effectively.

  1. Choosing solely based on Price

The price of water damage restoration services is only one factor within the company’s work. It is important homeowners review the company’s entire service suite before dismissing their services based on cost. Often the more expensive firms are the ones with the proven experience in the market. And even the leading, most trusted firms should be able to offer financing to customers to ensure their work is professionally completed.

  1. Choosing Without Discussing the Project with a Company Specialist

Before any work contracts are agreed, it’s important for homeowners to speak with a company representative and to go over the water removal process. This will help prove the company has the experience and the expertise to complete the work successfully, and ensure that all homeowner questions are answered before any work begins on their home.
