When Performing Water Damage Repairs In Your Fort Lauderdale Home, Think Restoration
Water Damage Repairs
When your toilet overflows, you have a leaky roof or a plumbing problem in any other area of your home, do you think of a restoration company first? The answer is more than likely no, you probably think of whoever does your maintenance, in most cases, you.
You may believe that performing water damage repairs on your Fort Lauderdale home might save some money. However, in most cases, the majority of homeowners cause far more damage than they set out to fix. Everyone should keep in mind that having a wood shop course in school, or two years as an apprentice carpenter, does not make you a professional repair person.
Let’s take the first example under consideration. A toilet overflow causes water to penetrate every corner of your bathroom. Water can seep into cracks in your walls, under your flooring, beneath plumbing fixtures, and even extend out into your hallway. You might mop the water out, dry carpeting in the hall and toss towels used to clean the mess up right into your washing machine.
Leaving out the multitude of bio hazards that you and your family just became exposed to, there are some things you forgot to address that could become a huge problem down the road. Water getting underneath of your flooring is huge, the flooring, as well as the subfloor, need to be checked for moisture. Even a small amount can allow mold to grow or rot to set in places that you cannot see.
