5 Mistakes Made When Choosing a Vancouver Water Damage Restoration Company

December 18, 2017

In choosing a water damage restoration company, Vancouver homeowners should focus more on the process of making their decision. Oftentimes mistakes within this decision process can mean that their restoration work isn’t completed effectively, and the structure of their home can be damaged further. In this latest blog, we’ll highlight five mistakes made when choosing selecting water damage cleanup companies.

  1. Waiting too long

One of the most common mistakes is simply waiting too long to call the flood cleanup company. This can mean that the extent of the damage to the structure of the property can magnify greatly. It’s better to deal with the issue immediately rather than face significantly more challenges later.

  1. Choosing without experience

Another common mistake is in choosing companies that don’t have the requisite industry experience. This can often mean that the specialist doesn’t have a clear handle on the restoration process and may make mistakes if they are placed in charge of a larger project. It is not the obvious problems that require experience, it is the hidden areas where moisture can hide and lead to black mold growth as is often the case with ceiling water damage.

  1. Choosing on price alone

Price should not be the sole consideration when choosing a Vancouver water damage restoration company. If you choose based on the price you’re likely to find that the specialist is either inexperienced or may not have the best equipment for the job. While some companies can offer affordable pricing, it’s also important that their affordability is matched with their experience and understanding of the restoration process.

  1. Not booking a consultation

The consultation you have with your water restoration company is of the utmost importance. Make sure that the company offers a consultation to review the home and the scope of the project. During this process, it’s important to discuss timing and pricing as well as any other questions you might have for the company and their team.

  1. Not considering emergency services

Emergency response should be a clear consideration when evaluating flood cleanup companies across Vancouver. Make sure the company you select is able to visit your home and respond quickly to the restoration challenge. Ask them about the specific timing for the project.
