Water Damage IN Your Valdosta Homes Immediate Attention
Water damage in and around your home can be costly. Early detection can help keep water damage to a minimum, especially if you can fix the issue before there is significant damage.
One way to determine if you have a leak is to check your water bills and your water meter. You could have a hidden leak if you notice a sudden unexplained cost increase in your monthly bills.
It's also a good idea to read your water meter. Don’t use any water for two hours. Read the meter again. If it has moved, you’ve just discovered you have a leak.
If a leak causes damage to your home call the restoration experts at SERVPRO of Valdosta.
SERVPRO of Valdosta professionals answer your calls 24/7/365 regardless of the cause, scale of loss, or size of facility.
Water leaks that aren't taken care of quickly can turn into a major problem. If the right conditions exist, mold will grow.
Those conditions include:
Water - Different mold types require varying amounts of liquid before growth begins.
Temperature - Normal indoor temperatures will promote mold growth.
Time - Initial mold colonizers can take hold within one day after being exposed to an adequate water supply.
If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.
If you see visible mold, do not disturb it. You can inadvertently spread the mold infestation throughout your home. When mold is disturbed, the mold can release microscopic mold spores which become airborne and can circulate inside your home.
What to Do:
Stay out of affected areas.
Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
