What You Need to Know About Water Damage

Having to deal with water damage is the worst nightmare for every homeowner. And in the event of a leaky pipe or a flooded basement, the whole house activities have to be on pause until your house is dry and secured. Here are three things you need to know about water damage to protect your house and respond correctly in the event of an emergency:

The type of water matters.

The three types of water causing damage at home are rainwater, fresh water, and sewage water. And they all need a different approach to combat them. Bacteria in sewage may make you very unwell and even kill you. Unfortunately, it is frequently simple to discern the difference since it will smell just as you expect. However, experts in water damage restoration will have the necessary tools and equipment to tackle any water-related issues that may arise securely.

Watch out for the presence of mold.

Despite the water being removed from your home, there is still moisture lurking in the shadows that you may not be aware of. And this can lead to mold growth in places such as crawl spaces and under floorboards. Toxic mold may harm a house's structure and have significant effects. A mold prevention expert should inspect your property to ensure that this dangerous substance isn't encroaching on your property.

Check out for attics.

A leaking roof or clogged gutters are the most typical causes of water damage, so your attic is particularly vulnerable. Check your attic often for signs of water damage to ensure that a tiny leak does not escalate into a more significant issue.
