Pretesting Process

Like most businesses, insurance companies need to stay vigilant about costs. You need to provide your customers with quality service without wasting their resources.
When a Cowesett, RI, customer has a claim, you can help keep costs down by implementing the pretesting process. Here is a look at the method and how it helps.

What Is the Process?
A SERVPRO technician visits the damaged property after a fire, storm, flood or other peril. The technician inspects the damage to determine the need for:

  • Repairs
  • Restoration
  • Remodeling
  • Cleaning

What Does Pretesting Determine?
The process helps the professional restoration company decide what materials they need to replace and what they can restore. It is not always necessary to completely replace items or structures if they can be cleaned and repaired.
The method can also uncover the best cleaning techniques to restore damaged belongings.
The process can define what areas are unaffected. Technicians can cover or seal off these areas to prevent further damage.

What Are the Advantages?
It keeps down the cost of an insurance claim to fix or clean items that are not a total loss. As an example, If a building has water damage from a burst pipe, the mitigation process can be less complicated than if the water is from a flood.
By determining what areas are unaffected, SERVPRO technicians can prevent damage from spreading. They can also help the insurance agent avoid the unnecessary cost of making repairs to areas that don't need it.
Pretesting helps the insurance company focus on the affected sites and avoid wasting time or resources on unneeded repairs or replacements. When you can save your client time and money, everyone benefits.
Conducting tests at a Cowesett, RI, property helps you provide your client with a thorough investigation. It also helps you reduce expenses and avoid wasting precious resources.
