Always Use a Professional for Water Damage Restoration

Water Damage Restoration by APR Restoration

There are many instances where water damage can be handled improperly by those without specialized knowledge and training. This is why it is best to leave it to professionals to restore it. You may experience troubling repercussions in the future that will cost you more money and time to resolve these situations. Even though you may want to address water damage in your home on your own, we strongly recommend hiring a professional when it involves water damage. Here are a few reasons why.

 

Mold and Potentially Permanent Damage

You are left to use your five senses to decide when water damage is done when handling it on your own. Unfortunately, this isn’t always enough when dealing with moisture and water damage. Using specialized equipment, our team will measure moisture levels and ensure that there aren’t any traces left behind in your building materials, furniture, belongings, or even in the air.

You may suffer from mold and mildew growth on your residential or commercial property if there are traces of moisture left behind. Even small traces of moisture can have devastating effects on your property over time. Some examples include:

  • Warped and swollen floorboards and drywall
  • Foundation cracks
  • Appliances and wiring damaged
  • Ceilings that warp and swell
  • Beams that are damaged
  • Persistent foul odors

 

Health Issues

It is often overlooked that water damage restoration poses potential risks. First, water can come in contact with many things that can adversely affect our health and well-being. For example, chemicals, pollutants, raw sewage, allergens, and other contaminants can cause infections, health symptoms, reduced quality of life, and even possibly life-threatening illnesses. That is why water removal may require protective gear and guidelines in order to be properly completed. It is important to disinfect and sanitize the area to reduce the risk of cross-contamination because contaminated surfaces can cause damage to your health long after the area has been treated for water damage. While we all practice good hygiene and cleanliness, this type of cleaning requires specialized training and experience to ensure you and those around you do not incur any future risks.
Your home or appliances can become damaged when water comes into contact with them. Water damage restoration could result in electrical shock or even electrical fires in the future, so don’t try to resolve it on your own. Do not put yourself or others at risk.
