Water Or Fire Damage In Your Sarasota Home? You Will Have Questions. Accutech Has Answers

After a fire or water catastrophe in your home, there are so many questions that run through your mind it’s difficult to know where to begin answering all of them. It’s important to remain as calm as possible. You’ll need to remember the requirements of your insurance policies. As we’ve discussed before, knowing the tenets of your insurance policy is key to overcoming your feelings of loss, anxiety and displacement after a severe fire or water damaging event.

What Restoration Service Can I Employ After Fire Or Water Disaster In Bradenton?

One of the questions you’ll inevitably encounter after a devastating fire or water event is whether or not you’re required to hire a restoration service recommended by your insurance company? The short answer to this question is ‘no.’ Your insurance policy should not state that you must hire a restoration company based on their recommendation or referral. You are free to choose the service of a reputable, licensed and insured repair firm like Accutech in Sarasota for fire or water cleanup and restoration. It’s vital to understand that if you do not hire such a company, you may be responsible for liability and damages yourself. Therefore, here are a few points to look for when inquiring about restoration companies’ merits:

  • Are the technicians certified by the IICRC? IICRC certification will be something that your insurance company will look for in the company you hired for fire or water cleanup. What does it mean? It means that the technicians are up-to-date with all industry advancements and have a thorough understanding of their job. Accutech employs on IICRC-certified techs. Our professionals who come to your home are fully insured as well.
  • Does the company have a solid reputation in your area? Your insurance company will not want to cover you if you insist on hiring a fly-by-night, cut-rate company. They need to understand that whomever you hire has years of experience and a full understanding of restoration services, that they are a company who does not cut corners. Accutech in Sarasota is just such a company. Our tools, techniques and employees are all at the fore of our industry.
  • Does the company you chose use the most advanced and effective tools? Fire damage and water damage cleanup can be difficult, even dangerous jobs. So in addition to having fully-licensed and insured techs, and in addition to a sterling reputation, it’s also important to find a company which uses the best tools available to restore your property back to its pre-disaster conditions. For instance, in Longboat Key, Accutech uses the Hydro-X Extreme Extractor to evacuate water from your premises. We do so because it’s the acknowledged best tool for water extraction in Sarasota or anywhere else.
