When to Call a Water Damage Restoration Professional
One of the biggest mistakes that homeowners make is waiting too long to call. The fact is, it can be difficult to determine the extent of damage just by looking at it. And the longer you wait, the more likely the chance for unseen moisture to cause structural damage and mold growth.
The first step in any water damage situation is to call a professional water & mold damage specialist. While you can do some of the immediate action items yourself – like turning off the water source and electricity, removing access water and relocating your valuables – you’ll need a professional to access the damage and provide industry-accepted, commercial-grade water pumps, fans and dehumidifiers to restore the space to a healthy, stable condition.
