05 Jan Three Services Your Restoration Company Should Provide
If you are starting a restoration business, you may be wondering what types of services you should provide. While this will be up to your individual business, there are certain services that you should be prepared to offer to your customers if you hope to build a successful business. Here is a look at a few of the services you should be prepared to provide in addition to removing water from the property.
Move-Out / Pack-Out Services
If extensive cleaning and restoration is necessary, you may need to remove items from the property before you begin the job. Therefore, you might want to consider including a move-out / pack-out service for your clients in order to prevent further damage.
Emergency Water Removal Services
Once your client’s belongings are removed, you can begin the process of emergency water removal. The amount of water that needs to be removed will determine the type of equipment that you need to have available for this part of the job. Submersible pumps combined with commercial vacuum cleaners will help you remove the water, so these are “must-have” items to include in your arsenal of supplies. You will also need air movers and dehumidifiers to help remove moisture from the air as well as the property. Hygrometers, moisture detectors and other meters can be used to help you measure the amount of moisture saturation that needs to be addressed, while infrared cameras can help find water that is “hidden” behind walls and ceilings.
Carpet Inspection Services
If the area that was affected by the water has carpeting, you will need to know how to inspect the carpet and pad to ensure it is thoroughly dried. Otherwise, the trapped moisture could lead to mold, mildew and other damage even after you think the job is done. While checking the carpet, you will also need to inspect the subfloor to see if it needs to be removed or protected from future damage.
These are just a few examples of the services that you might want to include with your restoration business. To purchase high-quality supplies at a low-cost, take advantage of the great prices available at Impact Restoration Suppy!
