Many people try to fix weather damage to their homes themselves but come up short or get overwhelmed. Here are 3 Reasons to hire a team of professionals.
One of the most common and most frustrating results of residual moisture in your home is mold growth. Mold can grow anywhere and on basically any surface as long as it has moisture and a food source. So, if you are in need of water damage repair in your home from a leak or a flood, it is vital that you get all the moisture out of your walls and flooring. But how can you do this if your only drying mechanisms are towels and fans? The answer is, you cannot definitively know if you have all the moisture out of your walls unless you have the correct infrared moisture detecting tools and the knowledge of how to get it out of each surface.
If moisture has penetrated into your walls or floors, the structure of your home could be unsafe for you to be living in. Water damage happens gradually, and in some cases, it’s hard to notice immediately. For example, one common place for the structure in your home to be unstable is around bathtubs and toilets. There could be leaking that you may not notice, and it could cause the subfloor or studs to become soft.
One result of water damage that a lot of people don’t know about is potential termite damage. Just like mold, termites will go anywhere where there are food sources and moisture. If there is residual moisture in your walls or subfloor because you didn’t have the correct tools for your water damage repair, then you run the risk of having these pests move into your home.
