How To Choose The Right Restoration Company

Restoration projects can include cleaning up the damage from water/flooding, fire/smoke, biohazard/crime scene/trauma and wind/storms—as well as mold remediation and more.

When your home or business is in need of restoration, it can seem overwhelming. As you consider restoration needs, you’ll probably realize that there’s a lot to think about. What company should you choose? What company can you trust? What company is going to do the best job for your specific project?

As it turns out, there are three things you really need to consider before choosing a restoration company to get the job done right.

  1. Is it a local company?
    1. By calling on a local company to get your restoration project done, you know they’ll be available quickly if you need them. If you choose a company that’s not local, and you end up with an unexpected problem, it could take hours for them to reach you. Choosing a local company, on the other hand, ensures that they’ll be ready right away if chaos occurs.
  2. Does the company have good reviews?
    1. In today’s day and age, reviews are everything. When people are particularly happy—or particularly upset—about a service, they oftentimes go online to leave their feedback. That’s why it’s important to take a look at a restoration company’s reviews. If they have good ones, great! If not, it might be time to look for another company. And if they don’t have any reviews, that’s typically not a good sign either.
  3. Is the company available 24/7?
    1. If something goes wrong with your restoration project in the middle of the night, you want to be able to reach someone. If not, it could make a world of difference in both the timing and the cost of the project. That’s why it’s important to find a restoration company that’s always reachable.

When you consider Calloway Cleaning and Restoration for your restoration project, you’ll soon realize that we fit the bill on all accounts.

We’re a local company, serving Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio (both Cincinnati and Dayton). We have great reviews—a 4.9-star rating after 242 reviews. And, last but not least, our trained technicians are on call 24/7 for all of your restoration needs.

Believe it not, winter is knocking at the door. But before you get all snuggled up and cozy near the warm fire, it’s important to make sure that your home’s pipes are ready for what’s to come. If not, they can easily break or freeze, causing flooding all over your home. Keep reading to learn how to best prepare your pipes for the winter—and what to do if disaster strikes.

How can you prepare your pipes for the winter?
As winter rolls in, the temperatures keep dropping, which can lead to big problems if your pipes are unprepared. To prevent pricey damage from a broken, burst or frozen pipe, here are three simple steps to follow.

  1. Insulate your water pipes.
    Many pipes throughout a home are prone to freezing as the temperature gets lower and lower. You can prevent this by adding a layer of insulation, simply by wrapping them with foam sleeves, heat tape or newspaper.
  2. Occasionally run the water.
    By letting a trickle of water run through the faucets in your home, it’ll help prevent the water in the pipes from freezing.
  3. Have your furnace checked.
    It’s very important to make sure your heating system is in good shape before the cold weather comes in. That’s because, if your furnace breaks in the middle of winter, your pipes are increasingly vulnerable to freezing temperatures.

What if your pipes still burst, break or freeze?
If you take every precaution and your pipes still burst, break or freeze this winter, it can easily lead to flooding throughout your home and can even damage the foundation structure.

Are you one of the many people in America who have mold growing in your house? Unfortunately, mold is a problem that people have been dealing with for years. Read on to learn why mold grows, the health problems it can cause as well as how to successfully get rid of it.

Why is mold growing in your house?

When mold shows up outside, it’s actually a good thing. It’s a normal part of nature, as it breaks down dead organic matter (including fallen leaves and dead trees). But when you see mold indoors, it’s another story.

Mold grows indoors when surfaces are wet. Mold won’t grow if moisture is not present. This moisture can be due to condensation, water leaks (which can often happen because of leaking pipes) or many other reasons. When something in your house is wet for 24 to 72 hours, mold can easily begin to grow.

Can mold cause health problems?

The short answer is: yes!

Mold can easily produce allergens, irritants and potentially toxic substances. If you touch or inhale any mold, it can trigger allergic reactions, including sneezing, runny nose, red eyes and skin rashes.

Even if you aren’t allergic to mold, it can still easily irritate your eyes, skin, nose, throat and lungs. Plus, the higher the level of mold in your home, the more likely you are to experience coughing, sore throat, headaches, diarrhea, vomiting, brain fog, dizziness and lack of energy.

How can you get rid of mold in your house?

If you detect mold in your house, the key is to act quickly. Mold damages whatever it grows on—and the longer it grows, the more damage it can cause. It’s important to take care of mold as soon as possible so you can prevent damage to your home and belongings, save money and avoid potential health problems.

Indoor mold growth can most likely be controlled by cleaning up the mold and then getting rid of the moisture that allowed it to grow in the first place.

So, once you suspect mold in your house, where do you begin? A great first step is to call a professional mold remediation service, such as Calloway Cleaning and Restoration. Mold remediation is one of our specialties! We’ll handle your mold problem in three simple steps.
