Many homeowners might associate water damage as something that occurs due to a flood or heavy rain, but water damage in your home can happen anytime, even during a drought!
For example, if a pipe in your home bursts, your home and its belongings are immediately at risk for water damage. It doesn’t take weeks or even days for the damage to set in, and it’s crucial to start the clean-up process immediately.
So, what do you do?
There are tons of articles online that lay out steps that homeowners can take themselves to clean up after water damage has occurred, but we recommend calling in professionals to access the situation, especially if the damage is extensive.
How do you know if the damage is extensive?
If you’re not professionally trained in water extraction, you could end up doing more harm than good. One very serious consequence to improperly handled water damage, is the possibility of mold setting in. The last thing any homeowner needs is to worry about mold issues popping up as a result of an unprofessional water cleanup job.
