Questions We Ask Water Damage Customers
As a homeowner dealing with an unexpected water loss, you may feel pretty stressed out (understandably). And calling our office for help only to be bombarded with numerous questions can add to the stress levels when all you want is for someone to get out to your home ASAP! But be assured, the questions that we ask are essential to help our crews be properly equipped with the restoration equipment that your home needs. This is the first of several blogs to come reviewing one of the questions you will be asked when you call in a water loss and the reason that it is asked.
Question #1 – What was the source?
If you are not aware of the source we will try to help you pinpoint it and we may have to recommend that you call a plumber or a foundation repair company. If you do not fix the source first, you risk having to request our services a second time or potentially damaging our industrial grade equipment while it has been left in your care. Neither of which we would want you to have to deal with.
Knowing the source will also help us indicate if our crew will be dealing with clean or contaminated water. As I am sure you are aware, when dealing with contaminated water, there are extra precautions that must be taken for the safety of you, your family (including pets), as well as the safety of our crew responding to your emergency need.
