Why regular water inspections are important.
Water damage can be expensive. It's not just about the cost of replacing your carpet and furniture, it's also about the cost of cleaning up water damage and secondary damages.
Regular water inspections are an important part of maintaining a healthy home environment by preventing mold growth from occurring inside or outside of buildings where people live or work each day including schools, hospitals/healthcare facilities etc.
Quick fixes aren't always the best option
The first step to fixing any problem is to recognize it. When you notice your water is not as clean and clear as it should be, it's time to take action.
Regular inspections can help prevent costly problems down the road by identifying potential issues before they become big problems. By conducting regular tests and inspections, you'll be able to spot problems before they get out of hand, so they can be addressed in a timely manner instead of after-the-fact when they've already damaged your property or equipment.
Quick fixes aren't always worth their cost. Sometimes a more comprehensive approach will pay off better over time. SERVPRO is the leader in the water restoration industry.
Water damage can lead to mold and mildew.
Mold is a fungus that feeds on organic matter, such as dead plants or leftover food. The mold can grow in excess of 15 square feet and produce spores that spread throughout the air. If you have water damage from a leaky roof or pipe burst, mold may be present in your home!
Mildew is a more localized version of mold that grows on fabrics like carpeting, towels and clothing.
It's easier to prevent water damage than repair it.
Water damage can be expensive, but you don't have to suffer the consequences. If your home has been damaged by water, there are steps you can take to make sure that it doesn't happen again.
Take care of any leaks before they become major problems. Leaks in pipes and pipes that run under floors or ceilings often cause major issues for homeowners because they have nowhere else to go but through walls and ceiling and those are not easy places for repairs.
Never ignore signs of mold or mildew. If you see any kind of blackening on walls or ceilings near sinks or showers
Water Damage Repair Costs.
The average cost per square foot for replacing drywall in an ordinary size room is $2-$5 per square foot (depending on the type of material used). This means that if you've got a small bathroom with about 10 feet x 15 feet worth of drywall being replaced then it would cost around $200-$400 just for materials alone!
