Should you call a plumber first for a pipe burst in your home or business? You can’t go wrong with that, agreed, but you can probably do better. What if you called a “full-service” water damage restoration contractor first? This type of contractor can not only fix the burst pipe but can also assist you with starting an insurance claim, can perform immediate cleanup on credit, can help you with damaged contents, can provide cleaning and storage of salvageable contents, can assist you in a consulting capacity to settle your repair payout & can provide full repairs services for the exact insurance payout and can also coordinate any specialty service needed, wouldn’t that be a better first call?

Call a full service restoration contractor, the best “first call” that you could make
If your home or business is affected by water, smoke, fire or mold and you are in need of emergency assistance, a full-service restoration contractor would be the best “first call” that you could make. These contractors have vast experience in handling every need that arises from these conditions. Their insurance claims experience is invaluable from the start. They can expertly convey the site conditions & cause of the loss to the claims department when the claim is first filed. Many policyholders don’t realize that saying the wrong thing to an insurance carriers claim intake representative can cause their claim to be denied. Additionally, having a plumber come in first to do an emergency repair and not having the plumbers invoice prepared properly can end up costing the unwitting owner a bunch of money that should normally be reimbursed. An experienced restoration contractor would have a plumbers invoice prepared to show one cost for the actual pipe repair and a second invoice or line item for the cost to access the damaged pipe including cleanup costs. Invoicing like this is better because typically the demolition & cleanup needed to access the pipe is reimbursed whereas the pipe repair is not.
Save yourself time, money & aggravation when you chose a restoration contractor
Another reason to call a restoration contractor first is to enjoy a seamless, time saving advantage in having the pipe repaired and cleanup started as soon as the pipe is repaired, often times with both being done simultaneously. The full-service water damage restoration contractors’ services will also expedite all other aspects of the job through completion with net savings of time that could add up to weeks, if not months. Wouldn’t everyone want their home or business fully fixed back to the way it was quicker & with much, much less time, effort & aggravation in coordinating multiple contractors? We think so and so do all of our clients.
