3 Tips Improve Water Damage SEO

There are 3 things you can do to significantly improve the SEO of your water damage company.

Tip 1:
Get google reviews! Google reviews are so important and I highly recommend focusing on them. Most companies have less than 5 google reviews and this is hurting their listing. When you get over 5 reviews you will see the 5 Google Gold Stars. This is important because when people are searching online they are looking for reviews. The gold stars stand out. Water Damage SEO will help you get more clients, but only if you focus on it. If your not focused on internet marketing in for your water damage company than you will be left in the dust! Riverside Water Damage has the answers to your view problems!
How do you get more Google Reviews? Ask your clients! Try not to do fake reviews because google might penalize you. You will want to ask your clients to review their service and post a review on Google and on Yelp. Sometimes asking is not enough. You will need to call them regularly and remind them to leave a review.

Tip 2:
Get backlinks. Sounds simple right? Well this strategy can definitely take some time. If you don't have backlinks to your website Google will not rank you. What are backlinks? They are links from other websites (preferably in the water damage industry), that point to your website. The more links from other websites that point to yours, the more authority Google thinks you have. You see if you have a link from CNBC, or higher authority pages, Google will think your website is important.
How do you get more backlinks? One way to is guest post on Blogs. Ask the person to guest post on their blog and then you can write articles and throw a link in your website into the article.
Does that mean you have to write? Yes. You will need to write some content than ask other blogs to let you post on their site. Or if you have friends in the industry, ask them to put a link to your website on their website.

Tip 3:
Change your website and update regularly! Google wants to rank websites that are updated regularly higher than ones that are stale and have no new content. You must be putting new content out there. This can be through your blog and also updating your front page. The more content you have the better. The newer content you have the better that matches the keywords. (Like Water Damage Murrieta)
SEO for water damage companies is extremely important and really relies on the valuable content that you have. If you have good content, people will come to your website. If you have poor content, people will not. So it's important to have great content.

Well that's it! If you ever need any help or don't want to do this on your own, contact Restoration Mentor for support or guidance. They also have some free articles on how to do water damage seo.

Tips for Preventing Air Conditioner Water Damage

Most homeowners who enjoy cool and comfortable temperatures indoors throughout summer thanks to their air conditioning system don't realize that air conditioners can sometimes cause water damage if not properly maintained. When working at peak efficiency, an air conditioning system can collect 10 to 20 gallons of water daily. Ideally, this water drains off of the condensation coil into a collection pan and then is disposed of automatically into the sewer system. But if the drain becomes clogged and the unit produces more water than it can easily handle, the overflow of water can lead to damaged floors and carpeting in addition to creating unhealthy deposits of mold.

A clogged drain line is often the major source of creating water damage, but other causes include excessive condensation that occurs when the unit is running round the clock in addition to evaporator coils that may freeze up and then defrost on a regular basis. Because most of the unit is typically hidden from view, unless regular inspections take place, water damage can be occurring on a daily basis and accumulating into hundreds of dollars worth of damage.

One of the best ways to avoid air conditioner water damage is to change the HVAC air filter at least once a month. This also gives a homeowner the opportunity to observe whether or not there is excessive moisture collecting on the condensation line. Ensuring that an AC unit has clean air filters also helps prevent the unit from overworking, a situation that causes freezing and then defrosting on the evaporator coils, leading to water damage. It's also important to regularly check to see that water is indeed flowing from the opening of the condensation line directly to the drain as it was designed to do, especially during periods of very high humidity in the atmosphere.
When installing an AC condensation line, avoid using elbow connections if possible and have the line run in as straight an up and down direction as possible to facilitate water removal from the unit. It's a good idea to get a professional air conditioning repair service to clean the condensation line at least once a year or every six months if the AC system is used on a year-round basis. A professional plumbing service can also install a condensation pump to help ensure the free flow of excess water into the proper disposal drain. A repair technician may recommend installing a device known as a safety float switch which will automatically shut down the power to an AC unit whenever condensation builds up and there is a danger of water overflow.

Professional maintenance of your HVAC unit on an annual basis can also help to prevent water damage from occurring by checking the air filter, the condition of the condensation line as well as the drains to eliminate any blockage or other problems. Ask about having your air conditioner service technician apply an algaecide to your system to discourage build-up of debris in the drain lines in addition to preventing the growth of mold and mildew which can spread throughout the HVAC and pollute the air throughout the house.

You've probably heard it many times before while looking for a cleaning or restoration company: "we are IICRC certified".

Let's delve a bit deeper into the myriad aspects that being certified entails to find out exactly what value it brings to the table.

Look Out for Flooding


Despite the persistent cold nights we've been experiencing lately in Southern California, summer is quickly approaching us once more. While the weather in our state is blessed with all the sun we can get with no trace of rain in sight most of the year round, flooding is still a possibility nonetheless. If anything, Southern California residents tend to take the possibility of flood damage lighter than the rest of the country due to our great weather. However, flooding can be caused by a number of other factors, some poised to wreak havoc when you least expect it.

With rain out of the equation, the vast majority of flooding scenarios are going to be caused by infrastructure problems, such as plumbing, slab leaks, and so forth. There are quite a few ways that an emergency flood situation can crop up: a pipe can burst unexpectedly in the middle of the night, wreaking havoc until someone notices in the morning. With this scenario, calling a flood damage technician out as quickly as possible will help mitigate further problems and potentially avoid mold growth and other related repairs that would be required should the water damage become more substantial. Drywall, flooring, carpeting... all of these can become potential problems when flooding happens.

Slab leaks are another potential issue, but these are far less obvious than pipe bursts. These are small, barely-noticeable cracks or holes in pipes that cause small amounts of water to leak into the underlying structure of a property over time. Since they can go for weeks or even months undetected, the damage caused by these can be rather severe. At the base level, water bills will be much higher when a slab leak is present, and the presence of water can cause musty or moldy odor to build up. This is also a precursor to mold growth if a slab leak occurs near drywall, and can also lead to floor or even foundation damage that may require substantial reconstruction work.

As always, it's the little things that we may not see or the things we least expect that can cause the biggest problems. When the weather gets hot and you think that you're high and dry, never forget that water can still pose a threat and that you should always be prepared for it.
