Spring and summer are the best times to buy and sell a home or business. The grass is green, the flowers show their vivid colors, and the home’s roof and exterior can be seen. However, what if you miss the fact that the basement has suffered water damage in the past or the seller purposely hides the evidence? For water and flood damage restoration services in Downers Grove, IL, contact ServiceMaster DSI.
Depending on the location of your home or business, you may or may not need a sump pump. Heavy rainfalls can overwhelm sump pumps, and if there are cracks in the foundation, water can seep in slowly or with a robust flow. Once water has entered, it’s important to act quickly and address the situation before it becomes a larger problem and huge hit to your pocketbook.
Obviously, water is easy to detect if you step into wet carpet, see water marks on floors and ceilings, or hear water dripping or flowing. However, water always seems to find its way into the tiniest of cracks and can go unnoticed. Be alert and attentive to signs such as peeling paint, discoloration of floors, walls, and ceilings, a musty smell, or a large increase in your water bill.
If not dealt with in a timely and proper manner, water damage can lead to problems with mold and mildew in walls, ceilings, carpets, and furniture. You may think that by running a dehumidifier and fans, everything will dry and mold can’t form. Wrong. Whenever mold spores find their way to a damp or wet spot such as carpets, furniture, and walls, you might be in for some potential problems.
Mold thrives in moist areas, grows, and can cause health problems such as allergies, respiratory illness, and even severe asthma or lung issues. That’s why it’s important to act quickly and hire a professional water damage restoration service with the necessary training, proper tools, and equipment to remove, sanitize, and restore your home or business from any sort of water damage situation.
