Don't Hire a Plumber for Water Repair

4/15/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of NW Monroe County fills the unique role for water damage restoration and remediation. In Monroe County and Western New York, water damage from burst pipes, sump pump failure, or other common seasonal hazards should be handled by someone you trust.

In the Rochester and Monroe County area, we've seen many companies that primarily do plumbing start to offer water remediation and restoration services. This raises some concerns. Firstly, we'd love to think that everyone will complete a task with integrity, but if a company does your plumbing, they now have an incentive to do a poor job, because they now offer services that allow them to "double dip" on the job.

A larger concern with these companies reside in the nature of water damage remediation and restoration. When we respond to a call about water damage, most of the time the customer noticed the problem right away. But, sometimes the customer just found out about a problem that may have been festering for quite a long time. If this is an issue with water, the longer it's been festering the more likely mold has started to develop. And unless your plumber is also an expert with cheese, we would recommend calling an expert in mold remediation.

When we respond to a water damage, we're on the lookout for mold because the two go hand in hand. The longer mold is left alone, the more damage it will cause. At SERVPRO of NW Monroe County, when we say it'll be "Like it never even happened" we mean it. But, if you call a plumber to take care of the water damage and they don't see the mold, you'll remember the moment you saw the water damage when you uncover the mold later on.
