Why Advanced Skills are Necessary when Fixing Flood Damage in Marina Del Rey

Flooding incidents can leave you with a plethora of damages like soggy drywall, insulation and other building materials, as well as contaminated carpets or soiled upholstery. Restoring the property to its preloss state takes more than just water extraction and cleanup. For example, there is a need to demolish some building materials after evaluating how the incident affected them. Rebuilding and refinishing such areas is also essential at a later stage. Choosing a professional restorer helps give you access to a highly skilled team.
 
One issue that makes advanced skills a necessity after flood damage in Marina Del Rey is creating estimates. Estimating how long the project is likely to take, helps homeowners make proper plans, especially if they have to move out from their property after the incident. Our SERVPRO technicians rely on our extensive experience dealing with similar projects to give reasonable estimates. For example, we can tell if restoration is likely to take days, weeks or months and relay that information at the beginning of the project. Informing the client helps manage expectations and make plans accordingly.
 
Frustrations build up quickly after an incident, primarily if it is not appropriately managed. Part of proper management is fast and clear communication from the restorer to all the parties involved in the project including the insurance adjuster. Issues like what materials require removal need discussion and especially if such removal is not done because of physical deterioration but other reasons such as contamination. Our SERVPRO technicians always strive to involve the insurer and the homeowner in any serious decision making. We also have different crewmembers who handle different aspects of the project. The crew chief coordinates the whole process and ensuring structured communications.
 
Some processes such as cleaning soiled upholstery items require expertise. The items are bulky, and they are also made from different materials, which might necessitate different cleaning techniques for a single item. Our SERVPRO technicians can manage such specialized tasks because of advanced training and vast experience.
