What NOT to do after a Water Damage

9/3/2021 (Permalink)

If you go through our past blog posts, you will find a myriad of tips and tricks on how to deal with water damages. Today, however, we wanted to change things up a bit. So, without further ado, we present What NOT to do after a Water Damage.

  1. DON’T leave water damage untreated. Water damage, if left untreated, can lead to collapsed ceilings/walls, musty odors, and often times mold. Not a fun time, 0/10 would recommend.
  2. DON’T use an oscillating fan to try and dry the water. A fan can keep the air circulating, but it can also spread any lingering moisture particles in the air onto other surfaces throughout the room. These little bits of moisture may seem harmless at first glance, but they have the opportunity to cause mold to grow. If a fan is oscillating, the particles aren’t just going in one direction, but in several different directions, and thus, more possible surfaces for mold to grow.
  3. DON’T believe everything you see or read online. Everyone loves a good life hack, but some of those life hacks may end up doing you more harm than good when it comes to cleaning up after a water damage. We have a whole team of industry trained professionals who know how to properly remediate water damages. Your home means too much to risk damaging it with unproven life hacks, trust the experts to care for it right.
