Do I Really Need To Call SERVPRO?

10/18/2021 (Permalink)

Is SERVPRO Necessary?

So many times we have gotten a call from a home or business owner who shares that they had recently found water in places where it should not be. Sometimes it is from a water heater, an air conditioner, a leaking pipe, a leaking dishwasher, or a leaky toilet seal. It could also be coming from a leaking roof, window, or door. 

The owners often dry the water with towels and sometimes a wet vacuum. Some customers have even gone to a big box store and rented or bought air movers or other equipment to dry it themselves. They no longer see the water and think it was dry. 

A few days later, their floors start to buckle, pull up, or cup. The baseboards and cabinets may have swollen and sometimes there is even a faint mustiness that was not there previously. What the property owner can't see can be secondary damage that is only going to get worse. 

What many people don’t know is that water often spreads farther than you think, and it’s incredibly difficult to dry properly without professional equipment.
