Why Water Removal Services for Your Dover Home Should be Done by Professionals

It is a natural assessment that when you have water damage in your Dover home, it just needs to be able to dry out and then everything goes back to the way it was. However, water is a destructive element which creates not only immediate damage but also long-term deterioration to the structure of your home. A hazardous environment is made, and it progressively gets worse as time goes on. You may not even notice anything is wrong as the damage mostly happens inside walls, underneath your flooring, or in an attic space.

If you have recently had some water damage emergency, you need the help of a professional remediation company for water removal services in your Dover home. It might seem like a good idea to clean it up yourself, but there without the proper tools and knowledge, you could easily miss something hidden.

If you do not get help, several things can happen, the first being the growth of mold. It can move into your home in a stealth-like fashion, making coverage along the subflooring and inner walls. It thrives where there is humidity and moisture present and can multiply at an accelerated rate. Mold causes deterioration to wood and can cause health effects.

When SERVPRO staff arrives at your home, we find the source of the moisture and remove any standing water. Then we can use special moisture meters and thermal imaging cameras to check for any hidden moisture in the walls, flooring, and ceilings. When all the moisture has been found, we finish the drying process by using dehumidifiers and air movers, checking on the machines daily to ensure the fastest drying times.

Other issues your home can suffer from unchecked water damage include dry rot. Although the wood used to build your home is sturdy and seasoned, too much exposure to water weakens the frame and compromises the stability of the structure. Eventually, you might start to notice cracks in the ceiling, walls, and floorboards throughout the interior of the house. Cracks get more pronounced as the shifting of the foundation happens, and your framework becomes more and more unstable. You might also find that doors and windows do not shut properly anymore, or at all.
