Water damage cleanup can be a stressful and expensive process, which is why many Mooresville property owners initially try to clean the damage themselves. Over the years, however, many of those same customers will later call us because of mold problems or other unexpected complications that arose from their DIY efforts. While we understand the desire to handle problems yourself, if you have water damage, there are a few reasons why you should call water damage professionals like SERVPRO of Iredell County instead.

Water Damage and Mold

Mold spores are everywhere, but in order to grow, they need food (organic material), warm temperatures (in most cases), and moisture. Most homes supply the first two components, but spores don’t typically have access to moisture unless the property has water damage.

Mold growth can be prevented if you act quickly, but that’s only if the affected areas are dried out completely. Most homeowners aren’t equipped with the tools and knowledge needed to mitigate water damage, so they end up with mold damage. On the other hand, water damage professionals like SERVPRO of Iredell County can test moisture levels, use high-powered drying equipment, and check for things like hidden moisture.

Hidden Moisture

Homes and buildings are full of porous materials, such as drywall, wood, and carpet. When a property has water damage, these materials absorb moisture, which can potentially compromise your structural integrity. You may dry all of the visibly affected areas, but it’s the hidden moisture that can cause problems like mold growth, chipping, and buckling. These issues can occur behind and underneath porous surfaces where they can’t be seen until it’s too late. Water mitigation professionals know where to inspect and what to look for, so you can rest assured that your home stays in good shape.
