Do I Really Need a Professional for Water Damage Repair

We live in a time where you can DIY just about anything. The answer to many of life’s questions are only an internet search away where you can find countless videos and tutorials.

The question that we sometimes forget to ask ourselves is should I do this myself? Just because it can be done on your own doesn’t mean it should be.

This applies to many areas of life, where we should let professionals do what they do best. At Reliant Restoration, we believe water damage repair is one area that should be left to the professionals.

There are many scenarios that may cause unexpected water damage on your property. Flooding, sewage back up, appliance leaks, roof damage, and bursts pipes can all cause severe and lasting damage.

Water damage repair is much more than being sure everything is dried up. Damage can quickly spread below the visible surfaces and the structural materials of your home can become water locked and weak. Lasting water damage will also become breeding ground for mold and mildew.

This makes the repair of water damage in your home essential to the structure of your home and safety of your family. Most homeowners do not have the knowledge, tools, or ability to locate the source of water, stop it, and properly repair damage on their own, even with the help of the internet.

While it may be tempting to repair water damage on your own, think about the value a professional can bring to the situation.

A professional will be able to accurately locate and stop the cause of water damage. Whether it’s a leaking pipe, roof leak, or basement flood, the first step will be to quickly find the source and thoroughly stop the source.

A professional will be able to quickly clean up the visible damage. You can rest assured all water will be drained and surfaces will be dried.

A professional will be able to locate any damage below the visible surfaces. This will ensure the structure of your home is stable, free of rot, mildew, and mold.
