Can You Trust Your Restoration Company?

Whether your home has been minimally damaged by a random act of nature or majorly damaged by a cooking mistake, life can abruptly change. When this happens, it will require you to make a quick decision as to who you will contact to help you restore your home. Deciding on a restoration provider in advance can be helpful in case of an emergency. Ask these questions about potential vendors: 

Are They Legit? 

Sometimes in life, you learn lessons the hard way! But the saying “not everyone is your friend” is fitting during a trying time in your life. When your home is damaged, not everyone who shows up has your best interest in mind. Most times, storms bring in scammers who follow storms from city to city to find people to prey on. They tend to have everything you need, promise you something that sounds amazing, then they take your money and leave! 

We are no scammers; in fact, we are proud to say we are quite different. We have been in the national landscape for over 50 years, and we have earned a reputation for being good at what we do. We not only fix your home, but we work hard to make sure you are completely satisfied before we are finished. 

Are They Readily Available? 

When your home isn’t in full working status, you are willing to do anything to get it back to normal and do it quickly! That’s why you need to be sure you have someone that you can count on. We know this, and that’s why we have someone on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week! Timely action can end up saving you a lot of money in the long run, since the longer damage sits, the more damage occurs. 

What If It’s a Big Emergency? 

SERVPRO of Romulus/Taylor is locally owned and operated, which means our community is our family. We’re here to help whenever your family or business needs us. And if major storms occur and affect multiple neighborhoods, we have a nationwide network of other SERVPRO franchises that will back us up. When we call for help, we can tap into additional resources and support. 

How Restoration Saves You Time and Money

Sustaining any type of household damage, whether it be from a fire, flood or other incident, can be a frightening experience. In addition to the damage, there are the emotional effects to consider for you and your family throughout the healing process. As you work to regain a sense of normalcy, getting help with the recovery process can make everything go much more smoothly so you can return home.  

With our restoration-focused mindset, you can be certain that we will do everything we can to restore your home and your belongings to their pre-damaged condition. We have the technology and the expertise to be able to restore many types of items, so you can focus on emotional healing instead of physical rebuilding.  

Let Us Handle the Restoration of Your Home After Damage  

  • We can help you save money on your insurance. Many types of damage will be covered by the insurance policy on your home, but there are caveats to making claims. The expense of these claims can be quite high, causing your insurance to increase your rates if there is total liquidation. Fortunately, going the restoration route can save you money by reducing your insurance claim amount.  
  • We can protect your sentimental items. For all emergencies, the safety of you and your loved ones is the most important thing—which is why when you have to evacuate, you must leave sentimental objects behind. We know how hard this can be, which is why we have invested in the best technology available, allowing us to restore objects like photographs, heirlooms and other precious things that could never be replaced.  
  • We make sure your home feels like home again. It is emotional to go back home after a disaster has caused damage, but we can help make sure your house still feels like home. We handle all the cosmetic considerations, such as paint, flooring and more, and put your belongings where they go in your house to ensure it feels like home.

Experienced Restoration Technicians Are Here to Help You

Paperwork with Homeowners Insurance on top of the form. Have you put a lot of thought into what you would do if your home was impacted by a fire or flood?

Have you put a lot of thought into what you would do if your home was impacted by a fire or flood? If you haven’t, it might be a good idea to start considering it. While no homeowners like considering it, disaster claims are much more common than you probably would like to think. 

Not every incident with an associated claim will need restoration in order to get their home back to its original state. But many homeowners find themselves in need of professional services. 

Home Disaster Numbers in America 

Experts explain that homeowners' insurance claims are common. According to the Insurance Information Institute, about one in 20 homeowners will file home damage this year. The statistics include all causes of damage and doesn’t separate the claims based on whether they need restoration services. 

We also have some statistics about individual types of disasters and issues, though. About one in 50 homeowners will file a water damage claim. And about one out of every 350 American homeowners have to file a claim for fire damage. Fire damage claims can include everything from lightning strikes to appliance fires. 

When you think about the United States’ entire population, that statistic translates to millions of families. Some of these people will need to get help from a professional team. That’s when choosing a quality restoration company will make all the difference for you. 

Training and Education for Technicians Matter 

When you trust us with your home’s restoration work, you can be confident that you are going to receive exceptional service from highly trained professionals. 

Beyond the training offered by SERVPRO at a national level, our technicians earn valuable certifications through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification. This non-profit group provides various certifications to ensure restoration and cleaning technicians can use the latest proven techniques when restoring your home. 

Count on Our Team When Minutes Matter

Paper with Insurance Policy written on it and a pair of black glasses. If you need restoration services this year, it’s vital to choose a team to work with ready to start the process quickly.

The reasons people in our community will seek help with restoration services in 2021 are as varied as the homeowners themselves. But there are a few common reasons that homeowners will need restoration help. People reach out to SERVPRO for reasons that include severe weather issues, such as wind, hail and rainAccidents and appliance malfunctions are also common reasons people need help from home restoration professionals.  

If you need restoration services this year, it’s vital to choose a team to work with ready to start the process quickly. Why does that matter? Because when it comes to restoration work, all projects have one thing in common. Timing is everything.  

Why Timing Matters  

Damage to your home can grow worse, much faster than you might think. For example, the water damage that starts as a minor inconvenience can quickly begin to warp the wood in your home and stain or fade expensive, upholstered fabrics. It can also start the mold damage process in your home—in as little as a few hours.  

How SERVPRO Can Help You  

Our team understands how important it is to get the restoration process started quickly, so we’re available to help you 24/7. We’re here when you need us, and if you have an emergency, we can start the process fast.  

There are other good reasons to choose SERVPRO, too. Here’s what makes us different:  

  • Our highly skilled technicians are using the best available technology. When you partner with us, you can be certain that the team coming to your home has the most up-to-date certifications, training and technology backing them. We can do this because we’re affiliated with SERVPRO’s national brand.  
  • Our business is local. All SERVPRO locations are locally owned and operated by people in your community. That means when you call us, you’re connecting with friends and neighbors. We want to help you restore your home to its original state.
