DDIY (Don't Do It Yourself): Water Damage Edition

When it comes to being a homeowner, especially nowadays, there are a lot of projects you can do yourself. There are DIY bathrooms, kitchens, and even other home repairs; however, DIY water damages, almost always end in disaster. 

When water damage occurs in your home, there are many factors at hand that require professional assistance. When water damage happens, there can be conditions that require an expert, some of those include: 

  • The water you don't see: Water can find its way into a lot of the nooks and crannies of your home, without you knowing it. SERVPRO® of Pulaski and Laurel Counties has tools and technologies to find those water-damaged areas. 
  • Mold: Mold can begin to set up between 24-48 hours after water damage. A technician is trained to look for these signs. Calling a professional right away lessons your chances of mold growth significantly. 
  • Re-build: Sometimes water damage can be filled with contaminants. This kind of water damage requires everything to go. We must remove drywall, carpet, anything impacted that the contaminated water touched. We have the correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to handle these situations and rebuild the areas that had to be removed.
