The Restoration Process: What Happens During Cleanup

When water, fire, or a storm damages your home, the results can be devastating. Homeowners have to deal with contacting insurance companies, finding a place to stay, and securing a restoration contractor to start the process of repair. Hiring a Minnesota licensed, certified and experienced crew of technicians is the best option. A reputable company can navigate the damage and begin work on the project in a timely manner so that you and your family can get back to your normal as soon as possible.

 

Inspection and Reporting

Before any work can begin on your home, a thorough assessment must be performed to determine the stability of the home, and the amount of damage done. Although fire, water, and storms, cause the same type of damage, the process is still the same. A contractor looks at both the surface damage and what has occurred under the flooring and behind the walls. Once the destruction has been identified, a full report is then given to the homeowner. The technician offers the best possible long-term solution that is affordable and efficient.

 

Cleanup and Removal

On the day of cleanup, the team of cleaning technicians arrives with all tools and equipment necessary to begin the work. All affected items are removed. These items may include drywall, framework, flooring, furniture, and electrical wiring. Although the workers will remove much of the damage, they will try to salvage as much as possible. For instance, they will attempt to keep as much of the structure of the home intact as possible. The framework can be treated and tiling can be re-grouted and sealed. The goal is to fully restore the inside of the home to maintain its structural integrity and market value.

 

Comprehensive Restoration

The contractor now restores the home. The objective is to recreate the home exactly as it looked before the damage. Quality materials are brought in to install. In some cases, the damage is so severe that the company will have to look at redesigning the interior instead of replicating it. In either case, the home should be fully restored and safe to live in for several decades. As a homeowner, you do not want to hire cheap labor or cheap materials. This will only cause you more headache and financial stress down the road. Treat your home to high-quality materials and a reputable contractor that can bring your home back to life. You'll be glad you did!
