During the Thanksgiving holiday season, it is natural to think about the things in your life that you are thankful for. However, if you’ve experienced water damage, everything is a mess, and you’re stressed about getting the water damage restoration accomplished before you host your annual dinner party, it can be difficult to feel thankful. Here are a few tips that can help you have a successful result so you will be able to feel thankful about your water damage restoration experience.
- Don’t Wait- The longer you wait to contact a water damage restoration professional, the more chance there will be collateral damage, such as mold, to contend with that will drag out the restoration and derail your holiday plans.
- Communicate- Take the time in the beginning to be sure you’ve communicated what you want done and explained your expectations to avoid any misconceptions or unrealistic expectations about the timeline, budget, or results after water damage restoration. Be sure you know how far the cleanup company goes and whether you need to bring in a contractor afterward for the rebuild phase.
- Be Cooperative- When the water damage restoration company outlines what they’ll be doing and when, make plans to give them the space and time to do their work. They’ll be able to work more efficiently, and that means your home will be back to normal sooner. Ask questions if you need to but try to avoid hovering.
