You’ve just discovered that your home has been damaged, for example, by flood, fire, etc. What should you do next?
What Should I Do in the Event of a Claim?
**Sometimes the loss is not significant enough to call your insurance company. Consider paying for small losses out of your own pocket. Insurers take notice of customers who submit too many small claims. If someone breaks into your house and steals your new stereo, it might be better to go out and buy a new one at your own expense, particularly if you've had a claim or two within the past three years.
Why should I call CDRG?
All CDRG members are certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), the leading authority in certification of standard setting for the cleaning and restoration industry. When you hire a CDRG certified member for your restoration needs, you are choosing a qualified professional. Because your homes are such large investments, calling an IICRC-certified company is your assurance that the job will be done according to today's strict industry standard. Making sure that our clients are happy is our member's number one concern!
Also, it is important to note that many insurance contracts have a clause that once damage to your home is discovered, you must take all reasonable steps to ensure that the damage is mitigated and does not continue to spread.*** This is where a CDRG certified member would come in handy.
