Homeowners, landlords, and commercial property owners alike dread the possibility of water damage – especially if it’s source has gone unnoticed or untreated for an extended period of time. This occurs, for example, when a hidden pipe has been leaking and causing unknown structural damage over a given period of time.
Remember: Immediate action could save you thousands of dollars.
With this in mind, homeowners are advised to contact water damage experts as soon as water damage is discovered, whether that be a leaking pipe, broken supply line or flooding. Water damage and flooding don’t just wet your floors and furniture; they can lead to ruined hardwood, baseboards and walls, – not to mention any damaged personal items – making immediate remediation plans is absolutely imperative. Porous materials are particularly susceptible to water damage such as doors, trims, wood, drywall, insulation and other absorbent building materials.
Trying to repair extensive water or sewage damage yourself could make the problem worse or you may miss drying areas that are out of sight, making room for the growth of unseen mold. You could also hurt yourself in an attempt to rescue furniture or items from the flooded area, depending on the extent of the damage.
