Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take before my property is dry?

The time required to dry your property can vary due to several factors, such as the source and amount of water, the duration of exposure, the extent of the damage, location of the damage, the materials used in construction, weather conditions, and how quickly you called for emergency services.
We know that time is of the essence in water damage situations, and that is why Best Option Restoration of North Houston uses unique thermal drying technology, which expedites the drying process significantly. While a specific timeframe cannot be determined, the drying process typically takes around three to five days or longer, depending on the specific conditions.

How can I prevent the development of mold in my house?

Preventing the growth of mold requires taking proactive steps. Mold thrives in environments that are warm, damp, and dimly lit, so it's essential to create conditions that are unfavorable for these fungi. Here are some measures to consider:

-Maintain indoor humidity levels between 40% and 60% by using your air conditioner and a dehumidifier, especially during humid summer months.
-Employ a dehumidifier in areas prone to dampness, such as your basement or crawl space.
-Install and use exhaust fans in both bathrooms and the kitchen.
-Ensure proper ventilation for your dryer, directing it outside your home.
-Swiftly address any leaks in your roof, gutters, walls, or plumbing to prevent moisture buildup.

Is it necessary to hire general contractors for the restoration process?

No, it is typically not required. At Best Option Restoration of North Houston offers full-service restoration, which includes damage repair, removal, and complete restoration of the area. If any additional contractors are needed, we will handle the coordination of their services.

Can you explain what a work authorization form is and why it is important to sign one?

Prior to commencing any work, Best Option Restoration of North Houston requires you to sign a work authorization form. Essentially, this form grants us permission to perform work on your property and communicate with your insurance company by sharing a courtesy copy of the invoice. This authorization is particularly vital for emergency mitigation purposes. If additional work is required beyond the initial emergency phase, a more comprehensive scope is typically prepared beforehand.

What are the benefits of having air ducts cleaned?

Air duct cleaning plays a crucial role in reducing energy costs, preventing mold growth, minimizing the presence of bacteria, allergens, dirt, and debris, improving indoor air quality, enhancing air circulation and flow, as well as optimizing the performance and lifespan of your commercial HVAC system.
