Water Damage Cleanup: Why Hiring a Professional Really Matters

water damage cleanup

Of all the types of damage that can happen to a home, water damage is the most common. That’s because there are so many ways water can enter your home undetected, causing harm that may go unnoticed until the damage is extensive. You might be tempted to repair it yourself, but there are good reasons to leave the job to the experts.

5 Reasons You Should Hire a Professional for Water Damage Cleanup

  • Expertise - An experienced water damage restoration professional will be better able to judge the extent of the harm and assess the correct way to address it.
  • Professional Equipment - A restoration pro will have access to the type of heavy-duty equipment needed to do water cleanup right the first time.
  • Fast Response - Water damage is insidious and fast-acting, and if it's not addressed quickly, it can spread through porous wall and floor materials and into furnishings and carpets, causing further harm the longer it goes unchecked. ServiceMaster is available 24/7 to start the cleanup process as soon as possible and stop the damage in its tracks.
  • Mold Remediation - One of the most serious consequences of excess water and moisture in your home is mold. Spores can spread and infect the entire home in less than 48 hours, causing not only damage to the surfaces it grows on, but posing a potentially serious health risk. An expert will have the knowledge to determine the type of mold present and the materials and equipment needed to handle the situation correctly.
  • Reduced Costs - Professional water damage remediation will save you money in the long run simply because the job will be done efficiently and effectively the first time.

    When Mr. Kim came to our house he looked around and immediately and professionally told us what we needed to do and what would happen. ServiceMaster talked with our insurance co. and they found us a nice little house on Fairview on the mountain it was a very nice vacation rental.

    They had a lot to do new cabinets in the kitchen, kitchen flood, dining room floor, laundry room floor, guest room floor. They are beautiful now we are pleased with the work. The men and women that came to help us they were so kind and the workers always helped to calm us and let us know we were in good hands with ServiceMaster, they told us it all would be made right.

    At this time my husband needed knee surgery and we had so much stress and all the workers helped to let us know everything would work out just right. We have been telling our friends about how great ServiceMaster company is. They are our pick to help us from now on in emergency situations.
