1/8/2021 (Permalink)

Do you have any water damage to your walls or ceiling? Contact SERVPRO of Gwinnett County S, we will help guide you through the restoration process.

Can you recognize the signs of water damage in your home? If you can’t name them from memory, you’re not alone.

Many homeowners aren’t certain when they need professional water damage remediation services or when it’s safe to clean up a leak themselves with a mop and bucket or some old towels.

If you’re a Snellville homeowner, your local SERVPRO team is here to help you determine how much damage water has done to your home and what type of restoration services you need.

That’s important because serious water issues can result in damage to your home within just a few hours or days.

Here’s what you might see when your home has water damage that needs remediation by professionals:

You can smell an unusual, musty odor. A strong, musty smell is among the first signs that mold is encroaching on your home. So if you smell that type of odor, it’s a good idea to start the remediation process by calling in professional technicians for an evaluation.

Your windows or walls are warped. Wood in your home will begin to warp if the water damage is severe. That means it’s essential to get remediation help if you notice wood damage.

The floorboards or furniture are deteriorating. Wet wood will start to warp within days. If that happens in your home, it’s best to start seeking help from professionals who can help you restore your home.

Water Damage Claims Are Common

Water damage claims are continuing to rise steadily year over year. And even before they started growing over the past few years, they were the most common type of claim that homeowners file.

Keep in mind that this isn’t a sign that all types of homeowners insurance claims are rising. Experts have also found through analyzing data that fire damage claims have been falling over the years.

Bottom line: If you do end up needing water damage help in 2021, you won’t be alone.
