Water Damage Restoration Done Right Can Save You Money
Do you know what happens to water damage if not properly cleaned and professionally dried? According to FEMA mold will develop within 24-48 hours of water exposure. Even worse, it will continue to grow until steps are taken to eliminate the source of moisture, and effectively deal with the mold problem. So, what are the steps you can take to prevent mold, AKA not paying more for mold damage repairs.
Call a professional mitigation company ASAP. You may ask yourself why can’t I do this myself? To which you should ask yourself do I have the proper IICRC certifications to handle water damage restoration? Do you have the right equipment such as air movers, dehumidifiers, demo tools, extractor, just to name a few? Do you know what your insurance company will and will not pay for and an online communication program to ensure that the aforementioned equipment was monitored properly? Can you ensure not to over or under charge the insurance company for drying it to a standard of measure? And last do you have the time to deal with all of the stake holders and subcontractors later when it comes time to put it all back together.
Water damage is stressful enough because of the disruption, and it will cost, hopefully only your deductible. But it will cost you more if you don’t know how to go about it, and check the boxes that will satisfy your insurance, your mortgage company and most importantly you the home owner. The other thing that will increase the cost is if you let it go for long periods of time. Slow leaks will not go away by themselves, and left unchecked will cost more due to the mold and maybe even rot.
