Why You Need Water Mitigation Services

Black mold growing on insulation and drywall This wall absorbed moisture, which caused mold to grow in both the insulation and the drywall.

At SERVPRO of Iredell County, we get several calls a week from Mooresville customers who discover soaked carpets, puddles of water, or worse. Most of those customers ultimately use our services, but we get a handful that cancel and decide to take care of the damages themselves. Unfortunately, this has been known to cause more problems than good, so if you have water damage, there are a couple of reasons you should consider hiring a water damage mitigation company.

Water Damage Often Leads to Mold

Many of the customers who cancel water damage cleanup services often call our team back in a couple of weeks. Mold needs moisture to grow, so when water damage isn’t properly addressed, it can encourage mold growth. We’ve found most homeowners think they’ve extracted and dried all of the water, but they often overlook hidden moisture, which can be found under flooring and behind drywall. A professional water damage restoration company would have the equipment and the experience to completely dry the water, significantly reducing the risk of mold growth.

Some Water Damage Can’t be Seen

Homes often contain many porous materials — such as drywall and flooring — that make great hiding places for moisture. These materials absorb much of the water in affected areas, allowing the moisture to cause mold growth and structural damage that can go undetected. The average homeowner would likely be unable to discover this issue until it was too late. On the other hand, a disaster restoration company would have the tools to detect this moisture, and they would be able to address it before it caused additional damage.
