We use the same pricing and estimating software used by most insurance companies. Mitigation estimates/invoices are almost always completed AFTER the work is done. In a mitigation situation, it can be impossible to know everything that needs to be done from the beginning. We may uncover other elements to the loss that were unseen from the surface. Drying times may vary. Odor remediation techniques may have to be adjusted. Estimates before mitigation are seldom accurate. We will do our best to get 100% of the work we do for mitigation covered by your insurance company. If you wait to get estimates, the damage is just getting worse. Time is of the essence.
