It’s a thought which runs through every homeowner’s mind, especially those who are DIY inclined; “it looks like an easy job. I think it’s something I can do myself without any problems”. While as handy as you might be, when it comes to safe and high-quality restoration work, it is not likely that you can complete the work yourself.

Don't Risk Causing More Damage to Your Property by Attempting to Fix It Yourself

If you’re a regular handy-man or are looking at damage for the first time and considering giving it a go yourself, Archer Cleaning & Restoration Services is here to give you some information on why it is a better idea to call in professional property restoration services.

Safety - Both the Safety of You, Your Family, and Your Neighbors

The most important aspect of any property restoration is safety. But safety extends beyond just yourself and any contractors while performing the work. The safe nature of your restoration services needs to continue after the work has been completed and the tools have been packed up. Safety is an aspect of property restoration that a professional is well versed in. From years of experience providing high-quality restoration services, a professional property restorer knows just what can go wrong during a restoration job and how to prevent it. In addition to keeping a safe, active work site, professionals will ensure that the work is of the highest quality, minimizing any future safety issues. As an example, professional property restorers are aware of just how much weight can be placed on certain areas of the home, including those being restored. Without this knowledge, a DIY job can be completed where the work looks to be finished, however, once items begin to be stored above the work, homeowners soon find they didn’t use the correct materials which can result in further damage to the property and cause an unnecessary safety risk for those inside the house and your neighboring properties. Leaders in providing safe property restoration services, Archer Cleaning & Restoration can refer to their extensive experience and expert knowledge to ensure all work performed is to the highest standard and is safe for future intended use. Speak with them today by calling (888) 436-3499 and ask about the safe and high-quality services they can provide to your property.

Hiring a Professional Costs Too Much

While this may be true for small ‘patch up’ jobs like a hole in your drywall or a leaking faucet, when it comes to more serious restoration services, the opposite is actually true for a few reasons:
  • Professional restorers are able to purchase materials in bulk and at trade prices. These prices are not made available to the public from lumbar yards and machinery hire services because of the low quantity of purchases and low volume of hires.
  • If your job requires a plumber, an electrician, and a plasterer, it can be hard to manage the workflow efficiently. This results in you paying for the Plumber to sit around and wait while the electrician finishes their work. Professional restoration services will create a productive and efficient project workflow to ensure these unnecessary paid waits do not occur.

Dear Homeowner, Please Provide Your Council Permit and Approval Numbers

This is the start of a letter which you never want to receive from your local council or relevant zoning and permit office. Unfortunately, this a letter which is often sent out to homeowners who have completed their own repair work in good faith, expecting that it meets all requirements. When this happens, the council can require any and all of the work you completed to be removed at your cost. Once this is completed, you will need to make applications for the work you have already completed and removed. Once approved, you will then need to complete the work again, also at your own cost. Professional restoration services have extensive knowledge in permits and required approvals and can easily provide assessment and information to you based on the work that needs to be done. Additionally, these services can also help in lodging the required paperwork, or even take care of the paperwork on your behalf.
