Top 5 reasons to hire a water damage expert

When something is too extensive or dangerous to handle, you should hire a water damage expert. It might appear like an added cost at the time, but you will be glad you did in the long run. Here are five reasons why hiring a water damage expert is the best action for your home in a water-related emergency:

Cutting-edge equipment and technology

Even with your fanciest Dyson or Hoover, you would be unable to extract gallons of water from your home or dry your walls, floors, and furniture. However, water damage experts have the right tools to deal with a water emergency, from high-powered pumps to dehumidifiers and specialized cleaning products.

At Highlands County Restoration Pros, we have it all. Suppose our IICRC certification has taught us anything. In that case, it’s that keeping up with the latest tech and tools is vital when it comes to restoring properties to their pre-disaster condition.

Experienced and qualified contractors 

Water damage experts have the experience and qualifications to identify the source of the water damage, assess the extent of it, determine what type of water is present, formulate a plan for remediation and restoration, and complete the entire process from start to finish.

The team at Highlands County Restoration Pros does it all. As soon as you hire us for water damage repair or restoration, we start planning the remediation process.

In doing this, we account for structural damage, mold, health hazards, and everything else that could affect the cleaning process. We also share this with you to keep you as us.


When you enter floodwater, you expose yourself to biological waste, sharp objects, industrial waste, and other hazardous materials. Therefore, you need to leave the water extraction, cleanup, and restoration of your property to a qualified professional trained to deal with such a dangerous situation.

Here’s what we do at Highlands County Restoration Pros:

● First, we wear protective gear, including hazmat suits, boots, and masks.

● We use advanced tech to determine the presence of hazardous materials.

● We identify any potential hazards, such as asbestos and lead.

Our IICRC training has taught us how to remediate water damage and restore your property without putting ourselves or your property in danger. We also use non-toxic cleaning agents and disinfectants so that you and your family can breathe clean and fresh air post-cleanup.

Mold remediation and cleanup

The longer a wet environment is left untended, the more likely it is to develop mold. Mold causes many health issues, from allergies and asthma to skin irritations and respiratory problems. Therefore, we identify the type of mold and take appropriate measures to remove it safely.

We also remove excess moisture from your home so mold spores do not find the right environment to thrive.

Help with insurance claims

You need to provide the correct paperwork and documents when you claim insurance. We help you with insurance claims by providing the required information.

We also tell you how to take pictures of the damage and document the cleanup process. In short, we do whatever it takes to streamline your insurance claims process.

Hire the right pro for the job

When you do a lousy job of water damage repair and cleanup, you’ll always be skeptical about the condition of your home. But you’ll have peace of mind when you hire a professional like Highlands County Restoration Pros with years of experience and positive reviews.

While some companies may only provide restoration services, others deal in cleanup only. Hiring too many companies and keeping track of the payments can become chaotic, especially when you are still processing the loss of your belongings and damage to your property.

At Highlands County Restoration Pros, we do it all. You name it: restoration, repair, cleanup, and we do it. But, more importantly, we do it with a satisfaction guarantee.

Since we only use advanced equipment and tested methods for restoration and repair, there is no risk of further damage to your property. Contact us today for an estimate.
