Can I Fix Water Damage on My Own?

water damage

It’s not unusual for homeowners to look for ways to cut costs by handling projects on a DIY basis. While some projects can be tackled DIY, water damage repair should not be one of them.

Here’s why!

What About Mold?

Did you know that along with water damage often comes mold damage? The truth of the matter is that your water damage could be far more serious than “just” water. There is a possibility that your damage will include far more. If mold is involved, it’s much safer for a professional to be involved than to rely on your own expertise.

When water happens, mold can begin to grow in as little as 24 hours. Unless you can get the water cleaned up in that timeframe, you could have hidden mold that you aren’t aware of. It’s simply not worth the risk.

Damage Can Be Extensive

While you might think you have a grasp on the damage you’re dealing with, sometimes there is extensive damage you can’t see right away. You might be thinking you just need to tear up the carpet and put on some new paint.

But what about the potential for damage underneath your surfaces? Drywall doesn’t stop water and it’s possible that it will affect what is behind or beneath the surface. Of course, you won’t see that until the damage gets worse.

A professional can inspect for other damages and sometimes, a surface has to be removed to inspect and then restore.

Get It Done Right

Don’t get us wrong: we are not bashing your DIY skills. Painting and even some woodwork can be figured out fairly easily.

But there is a difference in quality and efficiency when you compare DIY to a professional job. Getting things taken care of by a professional also places the liability for the job back on the professionals. They are responsible for doing it right. They likely also have guarantees for their work.

In addition to making sure things are done correctly, these companies also have the process perfected. They can move quickly and efficiently.

Forget the Hassle of Water Damage

Worrying about trying to fix water damage on your own can be a huge deal. You have to worry about getting the right supplies and then trying to figure it out as you go.

We’re guessing that if you have damages, you likely already have enough on your shoulders. Why not let someone else handle this task so you can take care of other things? It’s one less burden for you.
