Property damage related to water leaks and floods cost homeowners $9 billion between 2007 and 2009, according to the American Insurance Association. Homeowners may be tempted to cut costs by doing the water removal themselves. In most instances, however, this will end up costing them more money in the long run.
Professional water removal services know how to minimize the structural damage associated with leaks and floods. Even minor leaks can seep into cracks and crevices, creating odors and other problems. If the removal of water is not done properly, homeowners risk serious problems in the future like warped dry wall, weakened beams and discolored flooring.
Water damage professionals have the tools and skills to deal with contamination from black water and gray water sources, which aren’t safe for homeowners to deal with on their own.
Water remediation needs to be done quickly. Damp walls, ceilings and flooring are a perfect medium for mold to grow in. Mold spores start to germinate within 12 hours. If removal of water is not complete within 30 hours, homeowners risk developing a serious mold problem. Mold is not only a health hazard, it will also seriously undermine the equity homeowners have in their property.
Water removal professionals are not only experts at drying out and renovating your flooded home or business, they’re also experts at restoring any property that may also have been damaged by water. They know techniques for cleaning fragile items like books, personal papers and even photographs.
