How to Choose a Company to Clean Up Water Damage in San Diego

Posted by Cindy Desmet on Thu, Jan 09, 2014

You have water damage. Now what? How do you choose a company to clean up and repair water damage in San Diego?

At Clean Earth Restorations we are biased, of course, because water damage remediation is one of our specialties. We feel we excel in the considerations we've highlighted below but whether you happen to choose us or not, you may find these helpful:


Responsiveness - is the company available 24/7 for emergencies? In a flood situation, this may trump all other considerations.

Business accreditation - what is the BBB (Better Business Bureau) rating? (Clean Earth Restoration has an A+ rating.)

Equipment - does the company have high-grade professional equipment to ensure the job is done thoroughly and as efficiently as possible?

Black water / sewage - is the company qualified to clean up bio-hazardous spills? If your water problem is sewage-based, you will want to be sure and ask a lot of questions about the specialized services this requires.

Customer service - does the company make customer service an advertized priority? How do you feel when you call them? Do you feel you are heard and respected? Do you feel that you are important to the people you are dealing with?

Type of organization - do you feel better dealing with a chain/large corporation (where there may be scaled economies)? or an individual-owned enterprise (where personalized customer service and creative solutions may be much more evident)?

Other services - does the company provide other services you may need in connection with your problem (repair and rebuild for example)?

Reputation - asking friends or colleagues for recommendations is often a reliable way to find service providers. You can also follow up by checking online reviews on company websites, Facebook pages, and other social media or online review sites such as Google +, Yelp, and Angie's List.

Free estimate - does the company provide free estimates based on the specifics of your situation?
