Why should I not take care of water damage myself?
Even a small amount of water can cause a lot of damage to a property and if corrective action isn’t taken right away, the homeowner may bear the cost of the clean-up. This is because most homeowner insurance policies will state that it is the homeowner’s responsibility to try to limit further damage to their home after a water loss. If they don’t do anything, the insurance company could deny the claim.
On top of this, the longer there is water in a home, the greater the possibility of the home experiencing secondary damage. This is when materials that are wet sustain additional damage that then becomes more expensive to fix. A good example is when wet drywall is not properly dried and then becomes moldy. Another one is when you have a wet room that is not addressed and the high humidity levels cause damage to another room that wasn’t originally affected.
Secondary damage is always more expensive to mitigate than the original water damage but can be avoided is corrective action is taken right away!
