When a leaking roof or busted pipe floods your home, you might think you can handle the water damage yourself. After all, it’s just a little water, right? This is actually a misconception, with consequences that can potentially threaten the health of your family and the structural integrity of your house. According to Zenith Restoration, water damage experts based in Milford, OH, this is a job best left to the professionals.
While drying the surface of your floor and even vacuuming water out of the carpet isn’t terribly difficult, removing all traces of moisture from deep inside the structure requires specialized equipment and expertise. Companies like Zenith Restoration have state-of-the-art tools that let them inspect the interior of your home without tearing out the walls to determine exactly where the water/moisture is located, ensuring that your house is fully recovered from water damage.
You may think that a little water inside the wall or in the carpet or padding will dry eventually, but wherever there’s excessive moisture there’s the possibility for mold. Mold is famous for triggering breathing problems in those with respiratory illnesses; but even “harmless” strains of molds can irritate allergies, cause diseases, and generally create a less healthy indoor air environment.
In situations where water damage has occurred over an extended period of time, the assistance of a professional is even more important. Zenith Restoration’s team will locate and assess the affected area and other results of leaks that may not be readily apparent to the untrained eye, and may not even be anywhere near the leak. With their help, you can be sure that your property is fully restored to :Better Than Before.
