Water Damage Repair And Mitigation Tips

A majority of homes in the US suffer from some form of water damage at one time or another. Water damage can be caused by overflowing gutters, leaking pipes, clogged storm drains, dirty toilets or leaking appliances. To minimize your risk of flooding, it is important that you regularly check to make sure there is no leakage anywhere in your home. Any appliances like dishwashers, washing machines, water heaters, etc using hot water should be checked on a regular basis. Leaks underneath the house can be easily identified by your maid service or a simple cursory inspection of your plumbing. Checkout Charlotte Water Damage Repair for more info.

Water damage can also result in various types of mold. To effectively combat mold growth, it is crucial to detect the source of water damage, dispose of the water properly and remove any mold spores that have accumulated on carpet, drywall or elsewhere. In many cases mold can be successfully removed with the use of commercially available mold killing cleaners or disinfectants. If your home is flooded, there are certain steps you can take to quickly reduce the chances of mold causing damage to your home.

One of the first things you will want to do is assess the total amount of water damage and if necessary hire a water damage repair technician or company to help you assess the situation. The most common problem areas are kitchens and bathrooms. You can reduce the amount of moisture damaged to your floors, walls and ceiling by drying off affected areas thoroughly with a fan or professional hairdresser. Depending on the severity of the water leak, you may have to replace a significant portion of your carpets and wooden floors. Once the carpets have been removed and the damaged floor(s) have been dried and replaced you can begin on the clean up process.
