DIY Residential Water Cleanup
‘It’s not that bad, and I can do it myself.’ Those are the famous last words of do-it-yourselfers around the world who try to take on water damage without understanding the science behind the drying. Before you decide to take on your residential water damage, there are a few things you should consider.
The science of structural drying is complicated and is much more than fan placement. It is so complicated that the IICRC has developed classes and guidelines to ensure those in the restoration industry who take those classes understand the science of drying and the proper use of the latest equipment. The IICRC is the gold standard of the restoration industry, and all of SERVPRO of Lexington / Thomasville’s employees are IICRC certified in water mitigation and restoration.
Water travels from wet to dry, meaning it’s the water you don’t see that usually causes the most damage. So, by the time you have discovered your dishwater is leaking that water has traveled into your cabinets, floors and walls. And if that water is adequately dried, mold can develop that not only affect your home but your family as well.
So, while we applaud your willingness to take on some home projects, we suggest you think twice about tackling water damage. If you would like to learn more about water mitigation and restoration, visit our website at www.SERVPROlexingtonthomasville.com or give us a call at 336-224-2565.
