If you have a flooded basement, fire damage, or other serious problems, restoration should start as soon as possible to prevent additional problems like mold and keep your Tampa, Florida, home secure. To bring your home back to normal, contact a professional that’s certified through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification or IICRC. A certified restoration expert can detect hidden problems, use the latest equipment, and provide friendly, ethical service.
Finding Hidden Problems
Just an hour of heavy rain can lead to flooding and water damage in many areas. Water could seep into walls, flooring, insulation, or furniture. If you don’t clean up all the excess moisture, it could encourage mold growth and more damage. An IICRC certified expert can also check for smoke damage in your attic after a fire and look for mold and other damage in your insulation, underneath carpeting, wallpaper, and in other hard to find spots.
Using the Latest Equipment
The IICRC requires technicians to undergo continuing education about the latest industry techniques and technologies. At least one technician on every job must have formal training and good scores on IICRC exam. Many of these specialized devices would be expensive to rent or own and difficult to move or operate by yourself. This equipment includes industrial strength dehumidifiers, special fans or drying machines, ozone generators, moisture detection meters, and powerful chemical cleansers.
Providing Great Service
You’ll always get great service with certified technicians. They follow strict standards of honesty, and they always give accurate information to customers. Certified companies must have liability insurance to protect customers, and they must have a formal policy to resolve complaints through the Better Business Bureau or a similar organization.
