It is not unusual for a homeowner to discover a small amount of water under a cabinet or on the kitchen floor and clean it up, only to discover a larger quantity of water in the same place the next morning. How do you know when a small problem today will create a large problem tomorrow? Lets compare this scenario to our health. If we recognize a significant change in our health (symptom) we consult with our physician in attempt to discover the cause. Through a proactive effort serious long term health risks can be averted. The same is true with water damage restoration. A minor water leak can lead to major structural or microbial (mold) damage. It is best to follow a proactive approach and seek help from a water damage professional to determine the source of the problem and the solution to correct it. In determining whether to call a “flood company” just remember this advice: IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY.
