Water Damage Nip in the Bud Water Damage to Your Brentwood Home SERVPRO Says Interior Condensation Can Lead to Water Damage

Act Quickly with SERVPRO's Help To Mitigate Water Damage Effects to Your Brentwood Property

Water damage in Brentwood is a troublesome issue that many homeowners are not prepared to react to because of lack of prior planning. However, learning more about how to grapple with water damage is the key to mitigating damage to the structure and personal belongings. Eliminating conducive conditions leading to water damage, as a proactive measure, is the recommendation of SERVPRO. Why not stop water damage before it even begins?  Here are several signs you can look for to determine whether your home shows signs that may lead to water damage.

• Excessive condensation or humidity, poor ventilation, roof leakages, leaking pipes, dripping faucets, damp basements, and non-percolating ground water.
• Warped or rotting wood from water absorption, rusting metals due to oxidation, and musty odors in the house that may be the result of mold growth.

How Water Damage Restoration Professionals Can Help
Once you recognize one or several of the water damage signs outlined above, it is time for you to call a professional restoration company like SERVPRO. These industry professionals possess all of the equipment and tools necessary to do the following:
• Complete a thorough property assessment through inspection using measuring instruments such as moisture meters and infrared detection.
• Identify additional signs of water damage on your property
• Determine the type, source, and extent of water damage and stop further water intrusion.

Why Immediate Action Is Important
Less exposure to water, especially pooling water or hidden condensation within walls or crawl spaces, will limit water damage to your building. Moisture, can within several days, lead to the start of mold growth. If left unchecked, damage can occur to cellulose materials like the cardboard backing on drywall or studs. Some strains of fungi can also lead to potentially unhealthy exposure to mycotoxins.

Why You Should Not Attempt to Complete A DIY Project
In many cases, property owners who recognize signs of water damage in their residential living space are inclined to completed a DIY project. You should never take this course of action once there is visible damage. Proper drying of waterlogged or damp items lessens the amount of personal possessions that may have to be discarded. Most homeowners do not possess the equipment for water extraction and dehumidifying, experience, and expertise to effectively clean their property for a positive water damage restoration result.
