Time is so very important to each one of us. Sometimes we wish it would go faster, sometimes we wish it would go slower, and sometimes we wish it would just freeze. Unfortunately that isn’t possible. Given time, things can grow, things can mend, and things can be destroyed. Time is always of the essence especially when it comes to water damage cleanup in your home.
It really doesn’t matter how big or small the water damage is, the longer it is left without attention, the more damage there will be. It is that simple. In some instances, water damage can go unnoticed for a lengthy amount of time. For instance, if there is a crack in your foundation and it is the rainy season in Winston-Salem, water could be leaking through the foundation causing water damage without your notice for some time. Or perhaps on a very hot, humid summer day when your air conditioner is going, condensation starts to build up causing damage that you don’t even think about. On the flip side, maybe it’s a colder day and you take a hot shower, allowing plenty of water droplets to accumulate on your wall. Whatever the case or cause of your water damage, the faster you take care of it the better, and the less clean up will be needed.
I hate to be a downer so I will end on a good note. Water damage left untreated can be harmful but there is a way to treat it! There are professional water damage clean-up teams that have all the proper education and equipment to get the job done right in a very timely manner. This can save you from further financial burden, health issues, and structural damage. Most teams are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so make sure calling them is first on your list when you realize there is water damage in your home.
