Water Damage Restoration is Best Left to the Experts

11/18/2021 (Permalink)

Blog Summary: Many homeowners think repairing water damage themselves will save them time and money, but SERVPRO of Coppell and West Addison explains why bringing in professionals is more economical and causes less stress and headache for the homeowner. 

Why Water Damage Restoration Is a Job for the Professionals and Not DIY

Water damage wreaks havoc on a home. Leaky roofs, natural floods, melting snow, and leaky or busted pipes are just some of the potential threats.

If the damage doesn’t look too serious, homeowners, trying to save time and money, might be tempted to perform the water damage restoration themselves. However, with a lack of knowledge and experience, attempting water damage repair themselves often costs more money in the long run.

SERVPRO of Coppell and West Addison has the experience needed to repair these issues, as their motto states, “Like it never even happened.” This is a level of repair that few homeowners can achieve.

Professionals Are Better Equipped

With SERVPRO professionals specializing in water damage restoration, they have all the proper equipment for the repair. Letting the experts handle the job saves the homeowner the stress of trying to figure out what equipment is needed, let alone find and learn how to operate it.

Experts Plan for Current and Future Repairs

Experts know how to assess the damage and then create and execute a plan to repair it. With a trained eye, these professionals know what to look for far beyond the obvious damage. While the homeowner may only focus on the current damage, considerations for future issues, like the potential microbial growth, may be overlooked. Future issues mean more future expenses.

Experts Know What to Do

For most homeowners, dealing with water damage issues is a new experience. Having a professional help navigate the situation ensures everything is taken care of in the most efficient and effective way possible.

This is even more important when it comes to flood damage restoration. For example, in the case of a flood, water will damage much more than the walls and floors of the home. The homeowner will experience damaged furniture, rugs, books, or other personal items. The SERVPRO team knows what items may be restored and helps the homeowner with that process.

Also, because SERVPRO specializes in these repairs, they understand what needs to happen as far as insurance claims, repairs to ensure mold does not grow in the future, and other issues the homeowner may not be familiar with. 

Safety First 

When dealing with water damage repairs, most homeowners do not take into consideration the dangers of the water itself. Water from a busted pipe or septic tank could contain sewage, bacteria, or other organisms that pose many serious health risks. 

The SERVPRO team understands these risks and keeps these in mind when dealing with the removal of the water, repairs, and the contents restoration afterward. 

Certified, Experienced, and Available Day or Night

Being certified and helping clients in rain or shine and any time day or night gives SERVPRO of Coppell and West Addison the reputation as a premier water, mold, and fire damage restoration service for the Dallas area.
