+ if a disaster strikes my business or commercial property, should I call my insurance first?
Insurance companies appreciate it when you call a commercial restoration company, like Cotton GDS, to begin disaster cleanup and fix damages as quickly as possible. You should still call your insurance company, but there’s no need to wait for an adjuster to arrive before beginning necessary repairs and restoration. If you plan to file a claim, they’ll need an assessment of the damage, with photos, and a restoration estimate. Calling Cotton GDS speeds up the process.
+ How long does the disaster restoration process take after an emergency?
Cotton GDS works around the clock to get your business back to its pre-event state as quickly as possible. However, the exact restoration timeline will vary depending on the severity and category of the damages. Once onsite, your Cotton GDS Project Coordinator will assess the damage and provide you with a customized timeline.
