- Who is responsible for monitoring the drying equipment?
- Do my belongings need to be moved away from the premises?
- What would be considered non-insured work?
ServiceMaster Restore’s water damage mitigation specialists will place and monitor specialized equipment throughout your commercial property to achieve optimal results in the shortest amount of time. Equipment should never be turned off or moved by anyone other than the damage mitigation technician.
Depending on the scope of work, your belongings and contents of your home may remain on location. In this case, we will take appropriate measures to securely cover and protect contents. Any construction related dust or dirt that occurs as a result of the work, would be addressed in the post-construction cleaning. For large restoration jobs, it is advisable to move all affected contents to a secure, climate-controlled facility in order to protect them and make room for construction. Be assured that our technicians are fully trained and will treat your possessions with the utmost care. Our Automated Inventory Control System tracks the status of your belongings from move out to move back. We will work with you and your Insurance Claims Representative to manage this process efficiently.
Any construction project unrelated to your loss is considered non-insured work. At your request, we will provide a separate estimate for non-insured construction projects, and this work will require separate authorization and payment terms. If the non-insured work will delay the completion of an insured portion, then the situation must first be discussed with your Insurance Adjuster and the ServiceMaster Restore Project Manager.
