5 Steps for Choosing a Water Damage Restoration Company
Has your property been damaged by water? While acting fast is critical to prevent further damages, it’s worthwhile to weigh your options before you make the call. When it comes to your water cleanup, you need water restoration experts you can count on on the job, not some amateurs.
There is no time to waste going around and getting estimates from one water restoration company then the next. The longer you wait, the worse the damages will get, and the more the estimates will likely go up. What you need more than anything is a team with a well-established reputation for excellence, that can quickly and accurately assess the damage, and begin repairs pronto.
If you own or manage a residential or commercial property in Maui, be prepared for the fact that at some point in the not too distant future, there’s a good chance you will encounter some form of water damage. While it’s still not an emergency, please check out the SERVPRO of Hawaii/Maui testimonials page to read what our customers are saying.

How to Find the Right Water Restoration Service
Here are five tips for picking a water cleanup and restoration service in Maui:
#1: Include it in your insurance plan
Sometimes it’s required by local regulars to have water damage coverage in your homeowners or business insurance. However, even if it is not required, it’s always a good idea here in Maui. You never know when water damage will occur; it’s best to be prepared and protected in advance — and that definitely includes making sure you have the insurance coverage you need, otherwise you may be hit with a hefty bill after an emergency.
#2: Make sure the professional water cleanup team is licensed
Both national and regional governments have accreditation programs set up to help regulate the water restoration industry and give property owners greater confidence in the reliability of the water restoration experts they hire. You can read about SERVPRO of Hawaii/Maui’s license here. Our company also has the following certifications:
- ASD - Applied Structural Drying Technician
- RRRP - Lead-Based Paint Activities and Renovation
- WRT - Water Damage Restoration Technician
#3: Understand the costs of restoration beforehand
The costs of water damage repair can vary widely, depending on the type and extent of damages. Be prepared for the fact that urgent work will typically come with a premium price. However, what typically comes with an even greater price is putting off service and allowing the water damage to get worse before you get it dried, cleaned up, and restored.
#4: Ask for a referral
Customers that are satisfied with the restoration work that has been done will often give positive reviews. After reading through our testimonials, reach out to us if you would like to speak with a past customer regarding things such as the speed and quality of the restoration.
#5: Make sure the restoration company offers 24/7 service
Water damage doesn’t wait for normal business hours to strike, and it’s usually important to act immediately to address the potential damages. That’s why SERVPRO of Hawaii/Maui — locally owned and operated by Brian Konishi and his family — provide the Big Island of Hawaii and Maui with 24/7 emergency response to any part of the island.
