Professional Residential Water Damage

Water damage in Los Angeles can start as a spot in your ceiling or on your floor or wall from a leak. This can occur anywhere in your home, and although it is tempting to fix it without calling a professional, it is not a good idea. You should instead call the professionals at SERVPRO since we have the knowledge and the special tools to take care of your water damage problem correctly. Some minor leaks might be able to be repaired, especially if the source is caught early and damage is minor. However, if you are unsure of the origin of the leakage, or if the damage has already spread or become severe, which includes the growth of bacteria or mold, it will be best to get a professional evolution of your problem instead of trying to treat it on your own. Below are a few tips:


Water Leaks are Difficult to Diagnose
If you see drips, moisture spots, or puddles of water forming in your home somewhere, it is likely that a leak is causing it. While you can see the moisture on the surfaced, the problem is that the typical homeowner might not know how to find the problem’s source. You might not get to the root of the problem by treating the visible issue, when can then lead to damage unseen behind the walls or inside your structure which can be very expensive later on to repair. The professional water restoration experts at SERVPRO know how to find the source of the problem, and then we will also fix it before more damage occurs.


Water Damage can be Difficult to Treat
The exact source of the water damage might be uncertain at first, but water leakage can happen from flood damage, a malfunctioning water pipe, or a leaky roof. Even if it is a leaky pipe and it looks like the problem is pretty clear-cut, it can be difficult to repair if you as the homeowner are not familiar with various plumbing structures and materials. If you make the wrong repair or one that is inadequate, the problem will only be allowed to continue to grow unchecked, which could lead to damage which is extensive and repairs that are very costly.


Water Leakage can Cause Serious Problems
Even Los Angeles water damage that is unseen can cause health problems for you and your family from mildew and mold. This is why it is important for professional water damage restoration specialists to catch and repair your water damage early on. Water damage restoration begins many times with thoroughly drying the materials that are wet. Sections of the wall, ceiling, or floor may need to be replaced. We complete the professional water restoration process to get your home back up and running as usual.
