- Do I need general contractors?
- What causes mould in my home?
- Do the contents of my business need to be moved away from the premises during the restoration proces
There are some aspects of the fire and smoke restoration process that may require the services of general contractors such as drywall/painting; electrical; plumbing; roofing; framing/finish carpentry; flooring/carpet; installation of doors, windows, cabinets, post-construction cleanup, etc. ServiceMaster Restore offers full restoration services.
Excess moisture caused by leaks or flooding in your home — especially in typically damp environments like your kitchen, laundry room and bathrooms — creates the perfect breeding ground for mould or mildew. To control and reduce the risk for mould growth in these areas, you must properly maintain your plumbing system and monitor appliances that use large quantities of water, such as dish washers and washing machines. Small amounts of indoor mould are unavoidable and usually harmless. In damp environments, however, mould spores can more easily reproduce and cause more serious and difficult to remove mould problems.
Depending on the source, nature and extent of the fire, it may be advisable to move all your belongings to a secure facility for cleaning and storage, and to make room for restoration or construction. ServiceMaster Restore will work with you and your insurance claim representative to manage this process seamlessly.
