Water Damage is not a DIY Job!
Without question, the most important step a homeowner needs to take when faced with flood or other water damage is to waste no time in drying the area out. The old standby of setting up all your house fans to dry out a flooded area really isn’t very effective in the long run. It may do a satisfactory job on the surface, but deeper water damage to walls, wood, carpet and furniture, along with insufficient drying, can lead to more serious consequences such as mold and mildew growth, the flourishing of harmful bacteria, bugs in rotting wood and in extreme conditions, actual damage to the structural integrity of the home itself. To combat all these harmful possibilities and to prevent further costly damage; the best thing you can do is to call in a licensed water damage restoration specialist to tackle the job, like SERVPRO of Gateway.
