Do not just enter a contract with any firm without seen their license, because they can be fraud, take away your money and have nowhere to find them. Licensed companies take care of any damages caused to you or neighbors during repair, if not, you will be forced to pay for any damages hence more cost on your back.
Water restoration company
Carry out face to face interviews
Do not just get comfortable with the information you get from the water restoration company via phone or from their website. Make a point of visiting their firm, or having them come to your premises to examine the job and quote. Meeting them face to face will show you their attitude and willingness to do the job. Remember, it is advisable to have at least three companies to choose from, from the three make an effort of meeting the top two in the list. From the two you will feel comfortable working with one. Avoid any company that is discouraging or is not willing to meet you for face to face discussions. It is also important for them to send one of their service providers to visit your place and see the level of damage. This enables them to come armed with the right tools and materials on a work day.
Discuss your home rules with the firm you have settled for
Do not ignore the minor things like if workers should use your indoor bathroom or your telephone. They might seem minor but be a source of major trouble. Discuss with them how you need your property after work. Are you okay with them leaving them dirty or do you prefer they leave everything sparkling clean? The water restoration company should follow the desires of their clients for good relationship and for the sake of keeping the customer for tomorrow.
Ask for a written proposal
For the success of any business, everything should be put on paper. What is the main project and what is expected to be done? What is the agreed work warranty? How long should the process take? What time and day are they expected to start and finish the work? List everything said verbally and promised to be done on your work by the company. Do not forget to ask for a proof of a quality work and put it down on paper too. The written list acts as an agreement or contract and in case the firm defiles or fails to fulfill any; then you can use it to sue them. The writings also bid you, such that in case you fail to pay them for the services offered, they can also sue you and use the list as proof of contract.
