Why it’s important to have professionals take care of water damage in your home
Water damage is a nightmare every homeowner dreads. Not only is it a massive hassle to clear up the mess but long after the water has been drained there are often expensive residual problems to deal with.
Categories of water damage
Water damage can broadly be divided into two categories:
1.Clean water damage, resulting from overflows of household water. This is usually from burst pipes, leaky sinks and bathtubs, or faulty appliances.
2.Water damage that could pose health risks like flooding from an overflowing sewer line or a polluted external water supply.
Can repairs be done without professional help?
Because category 1 damage holds less health risks, it can often be mitigated by first turning off the water at source and starting a mop-up operation while waiting for professional help to arrive. If it is only a minor spill, you might even be able to get your home back in good condition on your own with a bit of DIY work. But most of the time, these issues may prove too complicated to deal with on your own.
