Hidden Water Damage
Hidden water damage is one of the biggest problems we see in the water damage mitigation industry. Many property owners attempt to clean up water damage on their own and clean only what they can see. This is a common error homeowners make when cleaning up water damage. This type of error may seem minor, but it can be costly and cause a lot of structural damage to your home depending on where it happens. Water damage that seeps into the basement – unseen – can cause major issues to the home’s foundation.
Some common areas missed by homeowners include behind drywall, baseboards, and underneath carpeting. If you’re only cleaning and drying the areas you can see, you may very well be missing areas you can’t see. A professional water mitigation company will make sure all water is extracted and the area is completely dry before restoring the area to its pre-loss condition. If you prefer to do the work yourself, be conscious of water getting into these areas.
When water gets into and behind these areas, it doesn’t only cause water damage – it can also cause major mold problems that can go unseen for years. Sometimes homeowners discover these issues when other problems arise (structural issues) or not until someone in the home becomes ill with allergic reactions to mold. Homeowners may also discover these problems when they attempt to sell their home and have an inspection done. This can disrupt or postpone the sale of your home.
