When a fire, flood, or storm wreaks havoc on your home, the damage is not always limited to just a cleanup job. Your residence may require replacement of drywall, windows, or roofing, and could even include larger scale projects to repair or replace any weakened structure of your home. Instead of just tending to a mess made, more often the process of returning to normal life progresses from assessment to restoration to reconstruction.
It’s a big undertaking, and one that can mean sourcing, contacting, and coordinating a variety of different professionals, all of with whom you’ve likely never worked with. It’s no surprise many homeowners become overwhelmed by the process, which only make matters worse when already having to shoulder the burden of a devastating event to their home.
Family, friends, and neighbors will be by your side to support you through the stress of getting life back on track, but skilled professionals are standing by to service your property as needed, too. But where do you start?
For example, let’s say a pipe in the second floor bathroom bursts, and now the kitchen directly beneath it has a much unwanted waterfall. After the water has been turned off to prevent further damage, it’s time to start contacting service providers. You’ll need a plumber to respond to the bathroom pipes as well as water remediation specialist to remove any standing water and dry the area between the kitchen ceiling and bathroom floor, but not until after the plumbing problem is completely addressed. If water had been pooling for awhile, mold becomes an issue, that leads to contacting a mold removal specialist. And once everything is finally restored to working order, it’s time to bring in a builder to make your bathroom and kitchen look like it once did–repairing drywall, flooring, showers or cabinets that may have been damaged in the process.
Overwhelmed yet? It’s no surprise given the number of moving parts at play.
