How To Use Both a Mitigation Company and a Contractor for Water Damage and Fire Damage in Mobile, AL

WE WORK WITH CONTRACTORS AND CONSTRUCTION COMPANIES & WE DO NOT COMPETE WITH THEM. We can handle a full scale water damage repair, fire damage repair, or mold remediation project of any size. We can work under the contractor, or be a total one-stop provider and bill for the contracting and repair services in one invoice. We are amenable to any arrangement and we work with any and all contracting companies to find the best fit for a total solution for the customer. We arrange moving where need be and arrange packout and storage, and finally can provide detail post-construction cleanup at the completion of the job. 

Flexibility. It's what the homeowners, contractors and insurance companies want. We deliver. ServiceMaster Advanced Restoration works WITH construction companies and homeowners in a variety of ways, and we tailor make our approach based upon the needs of the client and the requirements of the insurance company.

Unlike a conversion start-up ServiceMaster franchise, (or any other repair company), who is essentially an insurance re-build contractor; our company is primarily an expert water damage mitigation, fire damage mitigation, and mold damage remediation company. We are experts in this field. We should be. After all, we have been doing it for nearly 30 years and have some of the most highly trained staff in the industry. We do not promote ourselves as a one-stop shop that competes with contractors, we are a flexible mitigation and repair company that will arrange for anything that a customer wants. We keep the interest of the customer first. Period. 


Over the years, we have learned that it is a far better business model to become the area's industry leading expert in one field - migitation & remediation - and asist our customers in their repair needs. By doing this, we have cultivated some very thankful customers, have saved many of them thousands of dollars in repairs, and have made many friends in the construction and home repair industry as well.

Here are some of the many ways in which we have helped customers with their repair needs in conjunction with fire, water or mold damage:

1. Full service. We provide the water or fire mitigation and we hire a known contractor who has many many years of service in the industry. Several of the contractors that we work with are also APPROVED insurance program repair contractors. The service is seamless and we submit one bill to the insurance company or the homeowner and we warrant all of the contractors services. From the customer's standpoint, it is one entity providing all services.

2. Partial full service. We provide the water or fire mitigation and we hire the mitigation related services such as duct cleaning, dry cleaners, moving & storage and demolition; but the customer hires the contractor, perhaps one that we suggest or one that has done work for the customer before. The customer is billed separately for our part (mitigation and the mitigation related services), and the contracting. This system works well when the customer wishes to upgrade their interior, rather than rebuild as it was before.

3. Totally separate service. We provide water damage mitigation, fire mitigation or mold remediation services, and a contractor who is suggested by the insurance company or who is known to the homeowner, provides rebuild services. Any other mitigation related services are contracted individually by the homeowner as well. Some insurance companies insist that the claim is handled this way.

4. Working FOR the contractor. Because of our many relationships in the home repair business, many contractors call us to help dry small areas before they rebuld floors and walls among other interior structures. Many call us out for mold remediation in conjunction with a home repair or remodel project. These are the type of contractors that we enjoy working with. They know that they can't fully assure a customer that the structure is either dry, smoke odor free, or mold free; and they call the experts in to asssit. This delivers a higher quality of service, and a level of comfort to their customers that they otherwise would not be able to provide. Many times, we are called out and asssit the contractor in finding moisture or solving odor or mold problems, and there is little actual work for us to do. We are nonetheless glad to serve these contractors and we know that in the long run, there will be plenty of actual work to do. We also provide a large number of post-construction cleaning projects for these same contractors in both homes and businesses.
