Water leaks catch us by surprise and cause damage to our beautiful homes. Often because it is such a surprise that your home is now filled with water, homeowner don’t always know what to do. Surprisingly many people think that mopping up the water is enough. In summer of 2009 we had a homeowner call us after he had cleaned up water from a pipe leak about 1 month prior. He had removed the water with his shop vacuum and thought that was enough. Unfortunately 4 weeks later he began to see black spots all over his walls and cabinets. What started as a small water leak had turned into a mold problem. He still waited to contact us for another 2 weeks while attempting to fix it himself. We are not a mold remediation company and at that point it was beyond our help and not covered by his insurance.
More recently a homeowner experienced a water leak. They had the plumber out to repair the leak which he did but that was it. Unfortunately the plumber didn’t mention the need for a water restoration professional to inspect the home. 16 days later their wood floors are ruined, walls and cabinets are wet and carpet still soaked (it was in an area with no traffic). What you don’t know can hurt. Even if you think it is a small water leak and not worth your time it is much more safe to call a flood restoration company out for a quick inspection than to wait and see what happens. It may cost a small emergency fee up front but could end up saving thousands of dollars and a lot of headache.
