Why Call a Professional for Water Damage?
Water damage. These two words can carry some serious consequences in terms of health issues and property destruction. That’s because depending on the situation, the extent of water damage can be hard to identify in your home or business. The best way to get answers and save your property or building’s integrity from future damage is to consult a professional.
Suspecting Water Damage in Your Residential or Commercial Property
Has a water stain appeared on your ceiling? Or have you noticed another sign that you think may indicate water damage? Before you call a professional, it’s a good idea to investigate the suspected water damage on your own. In fact, get in the habit of inspecting your home carefully every few months for signs of water damage—flaking or peeling paint; water stains on the walls or ceiling; puddles or moist spots on floors or under sinks/vanities; and bowed walls. Mold or dried water stain spots are also telltale signs that water damage is or was present and may not have been correctly addressed. The more you see these signs typically means the more severe the damage.
After taking note of any and all signs of suspected water damage, it’s time to call a professional to assess what you’ve noticed as well as pick up on any others that you may have missed. Better to be safe than sorry when it comes to water damage—calling a professional is a wise choice.
When Water Damage is Evident
Are there obvious signs of water damage on your property? This could include big stains in the ceiling or walls; mold growth along walls, in basements, or under sink/vanity areas; or compromised structural integrity. When water damage is evident, you should call a professional as soon as possible to survey the damage and advise you on next steps. In some cases if the water damage is extensive enough, it may not be safe for you to remain in the building.
