Frequently Asked Questions
There are varying factors involved in disaster restoration. Occasionally it is difficult to predict exactly how long the complete restoration process of your home or business will take. Our technicians will give you estimates on dates and stages of the restoration project and keep you posted on progress.
For best results, do not try any self-cleaning without first consulting your Restorerz technician. It is important to pretest, use the right cleaning agent for the particular item, mix deodorizing agents with cleaning solutions, and use correct dilution rates to achieve best results. Our trained technicians use our professional cleaning system products to give you the best chance for complete restoration of your belongings.
Safety is one of our top priorities. We quickly identify and address all safety hazards during our initial inspection, including debris removal, air quality, electrical hazards, slip and trip hazards, etc. Any burnt electrical cords and appliances are separated out for disposal, and questionable electrical appliances are unplugged and tagged for evaluation or safe operation. Electrical power may be turned off until evaluation by a licensed electrician.
It is best to not turn on your furnace or air conditioning unit without clearance from the HVAC contractor.
