The health of the structure of your home is important to its core integrity. Your walls, roofing, and flooring are three of the more important parts of the structure of your home that must remain in excellent shape. Water damages can wreak havoc on your home. When it comes to structural damages, most are caused by water, high winds, or both. Disaster Cleanup Services will break down why it is so important to have the moisture extracted by a professional, from your home. 

How Do I Know If My Home Has Structural Damages?

Some of the more common signs of structural damages include the following:

  • Wet Insulation
  • Wet Walls and Floors
  • Damages to Wires, Gas Lines, and Pipes
  • Cracks in Wood Structures
  • Wet Electrical Circuits
  • Cracks in Foundation
  • Mold Stains
  • Rust Seeping Out of Cracks
  • Hard to Open Doors and Windows

If you have any of the above, have experienced a recent flood, or water damage to your home, call a professional water restoration company. They have specialized equipment to find the water and ensure it is all removed. 

I see Mold Stains, Should I Call a Professional?

YES! Structural damages to your home could also have mold. Mold happens when water is not completely removed from your home or business after a flood or water disaster. Mold is dangerous to your health and should be removed by a mold removal specialist. If you see mold stains in your home, it means the mold has already begun to breed and grow. Mold grows quickly and can reach different areas of your home, causing your entire home to be infested with mold. If left, mold will continue to cause damages, until you need a full mold remediation, which could cost thousands, depending on the damages to your home or business. Play it safe and call the professionals.
