Daryl Olsen, president of The Flood Co., says, “We are pleased to bring you this list of the ten best and ten worst insurance companies for 2018. We work with insurance companies all day everyday. Sometimes we have good experiences and sometimes we are frustrated with what some adjusters or their insurance companies try to do. We are in a unique position to be able to share this information. Most other restoration companies receive a significant amount of their business directly from insurance companies. They simply are not in a position to be publicly critical of those companies. We are unique because we don’t rely on those relationships for our business. When a customer hires us, we work for them. We don’t have any hidden loyalties that prevent us from advocating for our customers, and doing the best job possible for our customers.”
The Flood Co. specializes in providing disaster restoration services such as fire and smoke damage restoration, water damage restoration, carpet cleaning, and mold damage restoration. They also provide air duct cleaning services based on the guidelines established by the National Air Duct Cleaning Association. Their service areas include Box Elder County, Davis County, Salt Lake County, Summit County, Tooele County, Utah County, Wasatch County, Weber County, Heber City, and Logan.
Their water damage restoration services include flooded basement cleanup, ice damming, pipe leak cleanup, and wet carpet cleanup. They point out that while flooding events involving rising flood waters affecting hundreds or thousands of homes hardly ever occur in Utah, water damage can be experienced as a result of a leak, an accident, or an appliance problem. Things don’t even have to be visibly wet for serious water damage to occur. Mold can grow if wood and other organic materials attain at least 17 percent moisture content. Once the mold grows, the same drying options will no longer work. Some of the usual water damage events are pipe leaks, toilet overflow, water heater problems, dishwasher leak, freeze damage, sewer line back up, ground water problem, refrigerator line leak, sprinkler or hose problem, and ice damming.
The Flood Co. can also help with damage caused by fire and smoke. Fires of any size can result in substantial damage to the home or business establishment. And it is not just the fire but also the smoke and soot that can also cause damage, including the water used to put out the fire. Also, the smoke residue and soot should be cleaned up as soon as possible because these are highly acidic and can cause permanent damage to many surfaces in the business establishment or home. The Flood Co. can offer initial cleaning and neutralization of the strong acid as early as possible.
Meanwhile, the presence of mold in a home is a threat to the health of the people living there. Mold colonies release chemicals that are dangerous to health. It should also be noted that simply killing the mold will not get rid of the health risk because of the presence of spores. The mold have to be physically removed. And the removal is not the usual cleanup as large quantities of spores can be released into the air. The Flood Co. makes use of engineering controls to contain and then collect the spores that managed to get airborne. The finish materials that have been affected by mold also need to be cut out, bagged and then properly thrown away.
