Why is expense control important to flood restoration?

Restoration companies practice responsible cost management when carrying out flood removal in your St. Petersburg home to ensure services are efficient and easy to claim. Controlling expenses can also influence the time it takes to restore a property. Cleaning items that later need replacing can make the difference between taking two weeks to return a flooded property to preloss condition and two months. Careful planning and scoping of a property is one of the most valuable methods in reducing restoration timeframes. The sooner we can return your parcel to a safe condition, the sooner you can return home.

What stages of planning influence restoration timeframes?

  • Diligently preparing can ensure that multiple trips for resources or equipment are avoided saving both time and money.
  • Documenting job-site requirements can significantly speed up the administrative aspects of accessing equipment or processing your estimate.
  • Completing each day of restoration with thorough walkthroughs to identify any potential issues or successes in real-time.

Can homeowner possessions become damaged by restoration?

When flood removal occurs in your St. Petersburg home, there is likely to be a significant movement of personal contents, documents, and clothing. Affected rooms may need to be temporarily cleared to allow for restoration equipment or our workforce. SERVPRO takes pride in protecting the possessions of homeowners throughout a restoration. Damage reimbursement is always available; however, our technicians thoroughly document and carefully pack any materials or possessions that are restorable. Taking extra care can help to significantly reduce the stresses associated with a storm or flood recovery

How does professional restoration reduce expenses?

  • Documenting the scoping process of restoration work which can help to create a detailed estimate.
  • Providing value by offering add-on repair to structural components that may have a limited lifespan or could cause harm to your home
  • Implementing strategies to prevent secondary damages or structural deficiencies, like poor insulation, from affecting the home after restoration is complete.

Recovering your home quickly and cost-efficiently can help to ease the burden of a flood event. Contact SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg at (727) 522-0000.
