Hiring a Contractor - Know Your Rights

3/12/2020 (Permalink)

Roof of home burnt out with blue sky showing SERVPRO of Reno East/Central Sparks is here to support you through clean up, restoration and rebuild after a house fire.

If you ever suffer from a House Fire, Water Damages or if you discover Mold in your home, you have many different Contractors to choose from to work with you to clean up and restore your house.  Know that YOU have the right to CHOOSE the Contractor you work with.

The Fire Department or your Insurance Agency has no right to determine what Contractor you use.

Just because the Fire Department recommends or calls in a Company to board up your home, doesn't mean you are locked into using that Company.  Also, do NOT sign anything without fully understanding the document you are signing.  Sadly, there are some Contractors that will take advantage of the chaos that happens around home fires and try to lock you into an all-encompassing contract.  

Regarding your Insurance.  First and foremost you will need to know all of the coverages and limits you have in your insurance policy.  Your Insurance Company does not have the right to dictate what Contractor you hire to restore or rebuild your home.  Also, be aware, some insurance companies may offer you a lump sum, hoping you will just take the money and go away when your coverage was worth much more than the check the offer you.

Do your homework on the Contractors available to you.   It will be a long road, you need to choose the Contractor that will serve your needs.

If you experience a house fire and or water damages and need a company that will represent you, your needs.  Call us, we are here to help and support you through the journey of restoration and rebuild.

Mold is Growing! Need Mold Removal? Mold Remediation?

Pipe Leak With Black Mold Growing In Drywall When you need Mold Removal call SERVPRO of Reno East/Central Sparks, we will have you back to normal ASAP!

Many people don't realize that Mold will grow in the coldest of temperatures and the warmest of temperatures.  There are so many different types of mold and each can be very adaptable.  The concept that it has to be an ideal environment for mold to grow is a big misconception.  Mold spores are floating around in the air everywhere and all they need is a damp to a wet location to land on and they will start to grow.

The Reno, Sparks and all outlying areas are experiencing warmer than average temperatures.  The current temperatures are more welcoming to mold growth.  We are seeing an increase in mold jobs.  Mold in crawl spaces, mold growing under floors from a leaking shower or tub, mold from a leaking water heater, mold growing in drywall due to a pipe leak, it's all very common in the Reno and Sparks areas.

How to avoid mold?  Make sure you never allow any degree of dampness or very wet situations to exist for longer than 24 hours.  Mold can start to grow very quickly!  We have seen mushroom type  Funghi, growing out of a wet carpet.

If you find mold growth and need mold removal or mold remediation, call SERVPRO of Reno East/Central Sparks at 775-827-9944.   We have been serving the Reno, Sparks and outlying areas for over 10 years.  We know how to get mold cleaned up safely and you back to normal ASAP!

Fire Damage? Water Damage? What to Know Regarding Your Home Owners Insurance

When your property suffers a fire, and or water damages, it's stressful, to say the least.

First and foremost, don't sign anything immediately, don't agree to any flat-rate payment from your insurance company, don't agree to total loss any of your property, until you have done your due diligence on what your insurance policy will cover.

As soon as you have taken care of your basic needs, your first step is to notify your insurance company of your loss.  The second step is to take the time to sit down and review your insurance policy and find out what is the actual coverage on the following:

How much Additional Living Expenses Coverage to do you have, (ALE)?  This will cover Food, Clothing, Shelter, etc.

How much Content Coverage do you have?  This covers the replacement of the contents of your home or property.

How much Structure Coverage do you have?

How much Code Upgrades Coverage do you have?

As the home/property owner, you have to actively manage from a place of being knowledgeable about the policy you have been paying for for many years.  

We also will help you work with your insurance company to get your property restored and back to "Like it never even happened."

Call us, we have been helping Property Owners navigate property losses in the Reno, Sparks and outlying areas for over 10 years.  We can reduce your stress and partner with you through the process.

Fire Damaged Roof With Large Burned Opening If you have suffered any size house fire, call SERVPRO of Reno East/Central Sparks

If you are devastated by a house fire, the last thing you need is more stress added to you.  You need a professionally trained and knowledgeable cleanup and restoration company that will represent you, your needs and desires to your insurance company.

You have the right to chose the company you work with.  The Fire Department may make a recommendation for a company but DO YOUR HOMEWORK, check out Google reviews, see what people are saying about the Contractor.  Also if any Company represents that they are already working with your Insurance and you don't have a choice, or if they infer you have to work with them, this is a huge red flag.  They are not representing the truth.  The truth is YOU ALWAYS have a choice which cleanup and restoration company you use.

At SERVPRO of Reno East/Central Sparks we pride ourselves in offering a Customer-first focus, we serve you and your needs and we communicate openly and honestly.  We have 10 years of experience servicing the Reno and Sparks area.  We know how to manage whole house fires to kitchen fires, no job is too big or too small.
