DIY Water Damage Clean Up is Never a Good Idea!

Terms: Water Damage


A pipe burst or water damage may not be a big problem at first. But the longer you wait to fix it, the higher the risk becomes. Fortunately, there is no need to panic. It is quite simple – just call the experts! When it comes to deciding on whether you should call in professional help with any water damage restoration, the answer is always yes! Professional water damage restoration companies have the knowledge, experience, and equipment necessary to handle the job quickly and efficiently. Whatever you do, do not try to do it yourself. Here are some reasons why.



Having water damage in your home can make it impossible to live in. By its very nature water will seep into every surface it meets, causing damage that can invite dangerous health issues like the growth of toxic mold. In turn, mold damage can cause further damage and lead to structural rot in your residential or commercial property. Within 24 hours, water seeps into the walls and floors and mold can begin to grow. DIY projects may offer a quick fix for water damage that will remove mold temporarily, but if the moisture in your home is not controlled, the bacteria will reoccur. Mold spreads where moisture and oxygen are present and oftentimes grows under floors or in the walls. You may not see it, but you will notice a strong musty odor throughout your property. Mold and mildew can be dangerous and cause hay fever, asthma, and lung disease.



Even after the surface water has been dried, water can absorb into your property’s walls, floor, and ceiling amongst other surfaces. Unlike a DIY project, water damage pros use high-tech equipment to remove the water from every surface of your residential or commercial building. Without the use of commercial-grade drying equipment and technology to detect moisture in places you cannot see, water damage will remain long after you think it has been resolved.



Your home is where you are most comfortable and where you can keep your family safe. After a disaster, it may no longer feel that way – water, mold, fire, storm, or biohazard can disrupt daily life and seem insurmountable. Time is of the essence, and A. Molly Company understands the importance of a complete and thorough job to get you back into your home quickly. Restore your peace of mind by calling a company you can rely on.
