Does your home need build-back and reconstruction services due to a devastating fire, plumbing leaks, or mold remediation? You may be wondering if you need to hire a professional reconstruction company or if you can attempt your home’s restoration as a DIY project. To help you make the best choice for your specific situation, Zona Restoration has addressed a few myths surrounding professional reconstruction services.

3 Myths About Build Back & Reconstruction

Myth 1: It May Be Cheaper to Replace Than Restore

When faced with a waterlogged carpet or smoke-stained cabinets, it can be difficult to know if you should replace them or repair them. In some instances, it can be cheaper to restore these items rather than replace them. As professionals, we have the knowledge, education, and tools to restore many items to their original like-new condition. The only way to know is to have an assessment done by a professional. 

Myth 2: Smoke Odors Will Never Disappear

While smoke odors can be very difficult to remove, it’s definitely not impossible. It’s not enough to scrub, clean, and sanitize the affected area, whether it’s walls, carpet, curtains, or furniture. The odor-causing molecules must be removed in order to completely eliminate the ashy smells. One effective method we use to purge odors from your home is our ozone treatment and odor removal process. This method completely rids your home of the molecules that are causing the odor in the first place, leaving you with a fresh, clean-smelling home.

Myth 3: A Dry Surface Means There Is No Mold

If your bathroom, basement, or kitchen experienced flooding but is now dry, you may think there is no mold growing. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. Water can seep through floorboards or trickle into drywall or studs. If this moisture is not removed, it can result in mold growing within the floors or walls of your home. The only way to know for certain is to have a professional test and inspect for mold
