Who Needs Water Damage Restoration?

Even in winter; snow, sleet and melting ice can all cause some problems in the basement and the foundation. If these are stopped, then a serious time quencher and pocket splitter could have grown into what could have been a well-handled case.

How much harm to water does the need for professional repair necessarily justify? Do you have to wait to get your home destroyed before you ask for help? Here are the responses to those and other questions.Learn more at

Is My Home Water Really Damaged?

Perhaps just a bit of water won’t ruin your house, but you’ve certainly heard or seen the holes in the ground, the cracked walls with water stains, the puddles on the basement floor and the strange smells.

It becomes an infection of sorts as water enters your home, which it should not. Just as our bodies are designed to respond and eliminate some “alien” chemicals, or even a fresh piercing; as water enters our homes we will take the same protection. We will try to get rid of it before it sickens us and creates other issues.

So, what is the reply? If there is flooding where it shouldn’t be, then it has ruined the house and will only get worse if no action is taken.

How do you respond to Water Unwanted?

Clean the mess out immediately. Just don’t let the water evaporate. Evaporated water is still moisture in the atmosphere which causes pollution and some other very serious problems — we’re going to talk about that next one.

Dry out any damaged items once the water is removed and try to figure out where the water actually came from and if it can be fixed without an expert’s help.

Clean the mess up and try to air out the chairs or carpeting. Especially if the water came from outside; outside water isn’t safe and will probably hold bacteria. Therefore, it’s not all drying that has to do, but disinfecting and washing. It’s then off to avoidance!

What’s the worst thing that might happen?

If a water problem is ignored it can become a serious mold problem, which then spawns into additional problems. To live mold requires just a few things: sunlight, raw content to feed on and a suitable temperature. Even if you wipe up the water, if there is still the source of the problem then the mold will grow.

Even in areas we can’t really tell mold spreads. Any homeowners, for example, have cut out a tiny square of their wall to expose the back of the panel completely covered of mold.
