When Is It Necessary for St. Paul Residents to Call an Emergency Services Professional? | Restoration 1 of Greater Minneapolis

There are a number of situations that would require hiring an emergency restoration service team in your area. These emergencies may include flood damage, fire damage, sewage backups or a burst pipe. You want to find the right emergency service professionals, but you’re also on the clock.
For St. Paul residents, knowing who and when to call in an emergency can mean the difference between significant property damage and a minor inconvenience.

When to Hire an Emergency Restoration Professional

There are days every homeowner dreads. For example, the day in which a pipe bursts in the wall, a fire breaks out in the kitchen or a sewage backup floods the bathroom. These situations constitute an emergency.
The key thing to remember with any of these forms of property damage is that time is not on your side. With water damage, you have under 48 hours before contamination sets in and mold begin to grow. With fire and smoke damage, the longer the damage lingers, the more likely you are to suffer from odors and smoke contamination. The same goes for a sewage backup. Time is of the essence.

How to Hire an Emergency Restoration Professional

When the time comes to hire an emergency restoration professional, knowing who to call is your first step. You want to ensure the restoration company you hire is certified by the IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification). If not, find one that is certified. A certified technician will be able to address fire or water damage in your home.
Second, a reliable emergency restoration company will be able to provide 24-hour service for any type of property damage disaster. When you call, they should be able to disperse a team within an hour of your phone conversation.
Lastly, make sure you receive a guarantee. A guarantee from a reputable restoration company is like an ironclad promise that all work performed by their team will be done to the best of their abilities.
