This episode of the Common Interest Podcast features Jeff Lenz, an Estimator from BELFOR Property Restoration.

Jeff shares a story about a frozen pipe making for water damage to a condo during the Polar Vortex. It’s important it is to have an existing relationship with a Property Restoration company because when you are suffering from a natural disaster and need help, it’s likely you’re among a long list and a good relationship can bring you to the top. It’s also important because, without the experts on hand, you might act before you should, like the condo association in Jeff’s story that started wall demolition before his team was brought in.
