The first step in the water damage restoration process is to fully inspect the property and the extent of damage. Most homeowners and businesses will likely shop around for contractors, just make sure they identify:

  1. Are there any health and safety concerns (mold / contamination)?
  2. What items can be salvaged? What items cannot?
  3. How long will it take?
  4. How much will it cost?
  5. How to save money and cut costs?

There are many Houston water damage repair companies that can assist, or completely handle, filing insurance claims and dealing with your insurance company on your behalf. This process will likely take place throughout the water damage restoration process described below.

Saving Money on Houston Water Damage Repair

Choosing a company that can handle all or the vast majority of your project is a good way to cut costs. Full-service water damage restoration companies will often come in cheaper than having many companies handling different phases of the project. They are often much faster. And it will be much easier to deal with one company vs. many.

It may not save much, but completing some of the damage cleanup yourself - removing furniture and other damaged items - may help cut costs.

However, before doing so it is highly recommended to have your water damage inspection completed by a professional first. One, and most importantly, to make sure it is safe to do so - you do not want to be exposed to contaminated water, mold, or mildew. Two, to make sure it will help cut costs - don't waste your time. And three, to help determine what can be salvaged - don't throw something away that can be saved!

Painting and flooring services are also areas where you can save money. Choosing a less expensive carpet or wood, choosing vinyl over tile, or only using one color of paint are all ways that you can control the cost of your Houston water damage restoration.
