3 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Attempt DIY Water Damage Restoration

Water damage can happen to anyone, and it often likes to strike without warning. Whether you have experienced a flood, an overflowing bathtub, or a burst pipe, water damage is a serious issue that no one should take care of on their own. Even when there are issues with water damage, minor or major, you should make sure the water damage restoration is done by professionals. While water damage isn’t always severe, that doesn’t mean the restoration isn’t. If you are thinking about water damage restoration, here are a few reasons why we recommend you avoid taking this on by yourself:

1.  Mold– Mold can start to grown in as little as 24-48 hours of water exposure. Water damage can start the mold-growth clock on just about any wet surface, including things like drywall, carpet, bedding, etc. Anything absorbent can become an issue.

2.  Improper Repairs– Water damage restoration starts with things becoming bone-dry, an impossible feat if you are only using a large fan or a wet-vac. You need professional and commercial-grade equipment like we have here at Spangler Restoration.

3.  Neglecting the Source– Many times when it comes to water damage restoration, we take care of the cleanup and not the source of the water issues. If there is a leak in your pipe or another issue, then neglecting the source of the problems can have you swimming in clean-up time and time again.

For more reasons why you shouldn’t leave water damage restoration to your own devices, please call us at Spangler Restoration.
