During Your Call
When you call SERVPRO of North Hollywood, a highly-trained restoration specialist will answer your call. They're capable of answering most questions you have about the restoration process.
They'll ask you to describe the problem in as much detail as possible:
- What type of damage (water, fire/smoke/soot, mold, biohazard etc)?
- What caused the damage (rain, water leak, burst pipe etc)?
- Is the source under control (is the leak fixed etc)?
- How large is the affected area (part/all of a room, multiple rooms etc)?
- When did the damage happen?
- Do you have insurance?
- Are you the property owner?
This question is key: for liability reasons, we cannot enter a property without the owner's permission. If you're a tenant, you'll need to get authorization from the owner or the property manager before we can inspect and mitigate the damage.
At this point, you may be wondering about cost. While we can quote you a minimum, we won't be able to provide an accurate estimate without inspecting the affected area first-hand. Only then can we understand the full extent of the damage and determine the level of equipment, manpower and time necessary to fix it.
In most cases, your insurance company will cover the cost of the cleanup and restoration work. We understand you may not be eager to involve them. But we work with most major insurance providers to make the process as painless as possible.
If you're authorized and decide to proceed with an inspection, our restoration specialist will gather your contact info, send you a Docusign and schedule a visit. In many cases, we can have a restoration technician on-site anywhere in Los Angeles in as little as one hour.
