Standards and CertificationsQuick Links
Steamatic Restoration & Cleaning takes pride in being one of the best trained and educated restoration teams in the nation. When you hire a restoration team for your home or building, there are a few things that you should ask about before signing a contract!
Question 1: Are you IICRC Certified? By becoming IICRC certified, a restoration company is setting a quality standard for itself and it’s employees. The IICRC is generally considered the national standard for how to operate on jobs ranging from carpet cleaning to catastrophic fire or water losses to mold damage. If a company isn’t IICRC certified, then you should probably pass and hire someone else
Question 2: Are your technicians IICRC certified? This is also VERY important! Many restoration companies will certify their firm, but never put the people actually doing the work through the IICRC training. The more people on the team that are certified, the higher the likely quality of work will be. At the very least you should ensure your superintendent or lead technician is certified.
Question 3: Are you registered with my insurance company? While the insurance company can not tell you specifically who to use after an emergency, having a team that is already registered with the company can make a huge difference in how the loss is handled. Registered vendors will usually be familiar with how the insurance companies handle the loss, and can guide you through common issues and concerns more effectively. At the very least they should be able to get you into contact with an adjuster faster or know what work is pre-approved so that you can begin restoration sooner! If the restoration team is able to pass these three questions then it becomes a gut choice about whether to bring them on board. Are their technicians clean and professional looking? Is their van or truck in good condition? Small clues gained from the technicians look and attitude can give you a great deal of insight into how the loss will be treated.
