Avoid These Costly Water Damage Mistakes

When it comes to a list of things homeowners worry about, water damage usually ranks at the top of the list. Not only can it happen as the result of many different causes, it can bring with it huge repair bills, especially if the water is allowed to sit too long as it can encourage mold growth which affects not only your home, but your family’s health as well.

Mistake #1: Waiting Too Long

When it comes to water damage, time is of the essence. Water is stealthy and can seep into every corner of your home. Water on the floor, for example, can seep between the tile flooring and sub flooring and weaken the entire floor, including support beams. It can also provide a prime breeding ground for mold which can then spread beyond the water damaged areas and invade nearly every part of your home, rotting wood and ruining floors, walls and even furniture. This can all happen without your knowledge and you may only notice the problem when it has grown to astronomical proportions. Because of this, it is essential that you address water issues immediately and retain the services of a professional water damage repair company even if you believe you’ve gotten the water removed and dried everything. A second opinion with regards to water damage can save you big repair bills later on.

When water damage happens, it’s important to get it fixed as quickly as possible. Fairfax Water Damage can help by providing expert services to get your home back to normal. We’re here to help you through every step of the process, from water extraction to restoration. Contact us today for a free estimate!

Mistake #2: Choosing a Company Based on Price Alone.

Everyone loves a bargain but when you’re dealing with water damage, a bargain basement price can sometimes create larger problems down the road resulting in even more bills for repair and restoration. That’s not to say that you can’t get a good deal, but it’s important to remember the old advice about “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” When reviewing price estimates from companies take into account their reputation as well as what services they’re offering for the price. One company may offer a low estimate on water removal, but does that quote include a full and thorough inspection of your home to ensure the water has been removed as well as addressing any damage done to your home?

No one ever expects a flood or water leak to happen, but when it does, it’s important to know who to call. Fairfax Water Damage is here to help. We are the experts in water removal and restoration, and we’ll have your home or office back to normal in no time. We understand that this can be a difficult time for you, and we’re here to help every step of the way.

Mistake #3: Hiring a Contractor That Doesn’t Offer One Stop Service.

Ideally, the company you choose to assist you in your water damage issues should offer a full range of services. A company that specializes in both fire and water damage will be able to address issues raised by water damage as well as the source of the damage. In the case of fire, this could mean that they can inspect for damage as a result of smoke and fire extinguisher sprays. If your damage has been the result of severe weather they can assist you in the inspection of window sills, door jams and other areas often damaged through storms which allow water into your home. By choosing a company that is able to see the whole picture you won’t find yourself with a job half done.
