When do I not need to call a professional for a water spill?

Finding water pooling in your home can be disheartening to say the least, especially if you have never had to deal with something like this in the past. While many rush to call in a professional, there are some times when you don’t need to do so.

The first thing you should do is assess the damage to determine how much water you are dealing with right from the start. If it is only a small drop of water, it could be something as simple as condensation from a sweaty pipe. You don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars for something that you can take care of on your own in a matter of minutes. That’s why it is so important to spend time looking at the source of the damage right from the start.

On the flip side of that, you don’t want to ignore something that could be extremely detrimental to the integrity of your home. If you notice a leaking pipe or a large pool of water, you might need to call in a professional to start addressing the situation at hand. Large amounts of water can quickly cause damage to your home and allow mold to start forming in as little as 48 hours. If that happens, it can open up a whole new set of problems that you are going to have to address.

By remaining calm and really looking at the problem and where the water stemmed from, you can save yourself a lot of problems, time, and money along the way. If you aren’t sure whether you need help from a professional, the best thing to do is to call and speak with one of our certified pros. We work hard to ensure you are taken care of without having to invest extra money that you don’t need to in the first place.
