The fallout from water damage can be lasting and intense. It's important to get an experienced Atlanta water damage contractor in your home right away before problems, such as mold, set in. We've spoken with hundreds of Atlanta homeowners who have dealt with water damage contractors in the past year and asked them about their experiences. Then we've taken the companies that received overwhelmingly positive reviews and compiled them into a list of Atlanta Best Pick water damage contractors.
You might be tempted to go with the first Atlanta water damage contractor you find, since time is of the essence to avoid mold after water damage. But it's important to make sure you are hiring a reputable water damage company, and that they have experience in mold remediation. Look for a company that is certified through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration (IICRC) and that follows the IICRC S500 guidelines. Also be sure your contractor can explain every step of the process and can answer any questions you have before, during, or after the procedure. Your technician should be able, upon arrival, to provide you with an estimate, in writing, of the expected costs of extraction and drying.
After your Atlanta water damage technician removes the standing water, he or she will inspect the home for trapped water, and then identify the best tools to dry your home quickly. These steps help prevent toxic mold, which can cause serious health problems. It's important that your contractor inspects and dries thoroughly, because toxic mold thrives in cellulose-based materials. Wet building materials can grow a mold colony in as little as 48 hours.
