Your Guide to Picking a Restoration Company | SERVPRO® of Western Dutchess County
Going through a natural disaster and sustaining property damage is devastating for anyone, but for business owners, they are put in an especially precarious situation as their livelihood is at risk. FEMA reports that over 40% of businesses do not reopen after a disaster.
Because of the high stakes associated with proper disaster repair, it is important for business owners to work with a restoration company they trust. These are some questions to ask to ensure you are picking the right one:
Damage can rapidly get out of hand if left untreated, so a company that can respond quickly is a must. Get information about their emergency response procedures and hours of operation to understand what to expect.
One way SERVPRO of Western Dutchess County is able to provide a faster response time is our emergency line, which is live and staffed 24 hours a day. This allows us to quickly respond when a disaster is called in so business owners can use their time on other natural disaster recovery tasks.
Thorough and consistent training is key to ensuring the technicians’ work is of a high caliber, so potential customers should always inquire about their education and certification standards. Knowing your business is in good hands will provide peace of mind and ensure the work is done properly.
The standards set forth by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) are the most comprehensive in the industry, that is what we base our technicians’ education off of. From their initial training to e-learning and certification opportunities, we ensure they are always learning in the field.
Technology has revolutionized restoration equipment, so maintaining an up-to-date fleet of equipment is vital to performing a high caliber of work. Inquire about a company’s fleet of tools and equipment so you can be sure the best and most updated technology is being used on your restoration.
We choose our own equipment based on the IICRC guidelines, which guarantees that we are utilizing the industry standard. Whether removing water damage or scrubbing the air of soot particles, we can ensure we will do the best job for your business.
