Company should have updated website

Response time is key
For the most part, all restoration companies use they same type of equipment and have similar processes. What separates the good ones from the bad ones is response time. For example, during a water damage the company that can get out there the fastest and stabilize the damage will save you the most money. A restoration company with a fast response time should be mandatory.
Must have certifications
For restoration professionals, this is the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). IICRC-approved schools have trained up restoration professionals for years, and its classes cover a range of topics pertinent to restoration technicians. This includes the theory of water damage, how it affects the home, what materials are at risk, how to remove excess moisture from the building, how to perform structural drying properly, how to inspect and remove pathogens, and how to save sensitive materials like wooden floors. Attaining certification through the IICRC requires hard work and an ongoing commitment to the field, as registrants must earn continuing education credits annually. Homeowners can rest assured that if they are dealing with a certified crew, they are dealing with some of the best in the business.
