Hiring a Water Damage Contractor

While it is important to begin the drying process as quickly as possible after a home flood, make sure you are hiring a reputable water damage company with experience in mold remediation. No regulations governing water damage restoration procedure are currently in effect; however, the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), a large certifying organization, has set a procedural standard which most companies follow. The IICRC S500 outlines guidelines and precautions to be followed when performing water or sewage damage services in a home or building.
