Companies that specialize in insurance work either “mitigate” (i.e., clean up), restore the house to its original condition, or both. Since the company insuring the house is paying the bill and the goal is to restore the house to its previous condition, the sale is about how quickly and effectively a company can do the work. Whether it’s a $100 million or a $1 million operation, insurance restoration companies are set up almost along military lines to mobilize and respond to homeowners in emergency situations.
