Make sure the company you are considering is licensed and insured. If they tell you they are, don’t just take their word for it. Ask for a copy of their license and insurance or for their license number which you can check yourself online.

While you may be in a rush to call the first company you find to fix the mess in your house, make sure you do your research. Ask for local references and follow up on them. If a company will not provide you with references, you should pick a different company.

Pick a company that offers a guarantee or warranty on their work. If a company does not even have a workmanship guarantee, it is likely that the work they are doing is not of the highest quality and is a sign you should keep looking for a restoration service.
