Cleaning Things to look for in a cleanup and restoration service Carmel Valley Cleanup and Restoration

Every homeowner will need a cleanup and restoration service at least once in their lives. With the number of risks that every kind of structure is exposed to, you need to have someone that could be trusted with mold and mildew removal, water damage restoration, fires restoration, and similar services.

But how do you know who to trust?

The amount of experience that they have should come first.

  • How long have they been doing restoration and cleaning services?
  • How extensive is their experience with fire and water damage?

Make sure you find out about the experience and expertise not only of the company as a whole, but of every technician who works for them as well.

You also have to make sure that they give you permanent or long-term fixes instead of temporary ones. Find someone who will not only try to patch up the existing problem. Instead, find someone who will find the root cause and eliminate the problem from there.

Considering the fact that SERVPRO has been in the industry since 1967, it definitely proves that this is the one name that you can trust when it comes to cleanup and restoration services.

SERVPRO does not only serve residential customers in Carmel Valley and Rancho Santa Fe, but commercial clients as well.

Why Only a Professional Should Take Care of Smoke Damage

Fire Damage Why Only a Professional Should Take Care of Smoke Damage Carmel Valley Fire Damage

Do you believe that only a professional should take care of smoke damage? Once the flames are put out and the firefighters leave, people think that the fire damage left over should be easy to take care of. However, knowing how to clean smoke damage the right way takes years of experience to master, which means that you should leave the job for experienced professionals.

One powerful thing that a fire can leave behind is ash residue. Aside from the fact that this could hurt your lungs, ash residue can cause extensive corrosion on the structure as well. Ash residue is also not an easy thing to get rid of; it easily spreads around the place and the smallest amount of it can cause further damage to your furniture and to the remaining structure. It causes discoloration on any kind of surface and can also cause metals to tarnish.

And what happens when you fail to get rid of all this ash residue on your own? You’ll find yourself overwhelmed when the damage has spread out, increasing your costs and making you wish you left it to the professionals the first time.
