What Would You Do If Disaster Hits Your Commercial Business?
What to look for before hiring a Commercial Restoration Contractor
When your business is faced with water, fire or some other disaster-how do you work to get your livelihood back up and running? Those damages can be easily repaired or could put you face to face with losing a business. When you face any situation of mitigation and restoration, who do you call? Who do you trust?
It’s time to pick up the phone and call in professionals. However, how well do you know the restoration company you are calling? When looking for restoration contractors, you must remind yourself that you are allowing workers into your space to fix damage to your business. You want workers who are expertly trained professionals with experience. These experts are fully equipped with the latest cleaning instruments and current restoration techniques. Commercial properties expose contractors to an entirely different field of fire requirements, building codes and zoning restrictions. As an owner, you will want to do the research on companies you can trust to follow all guidelines.
Here are a few things you can do to avoid contacting fake, or unprofessional restoration companies.
Check Their Website, Is it Genuine?
The internet can be a place for scammers and false people. However, it is also a good place to find restoration companies the quickest and easiest way possible.
You will know if the site is from a professional company when you are presented with links to their services. Use these links to research their work, their guidelines as a company.
Some services for commercial restoration include:
- Sewage Remediation
- Fire Damage Restoration
- Water Damage Restoration
- Content Restoration and Care
- Mold Remediation
- Community involvement
Read Testimonials & Client Reviews
Most service companies are turning to social media to keep communities and would be customers well informed. Use their websites, their Facebook, etc. to find reviews and details on services provided. Looking at what previous clients have said about the companies will help you to have an informed decision.
By reading the client’s testimonials, you get an idea of how this company will handle the situation you are facing.
Call Them, It Never Hurts to Ask Them
Professional workers know what they are talking about; they know the history, and services their company provides, and they know how to solve simple restorations even when they are on the other line.
If the job was done by unprofessional workers, it may do more harm than good to your property. Instead of fixing the problem, they could complicate the situation with sloppy work, and mess-ups, leaving you in a difficult dilemma.
