The winter can be damaging to your home in a variety of ways. The plumbing in your home can be very susceptible to extreme cold. Frigid winter temperatures can cause pipes to freeze, to crack, and, after thawing, to unleash a flood throughout your home. Water damage is an unfortunate reality for many homeowners every winter. The outcome of this problem essentially boils down to how you approach it, your plan to rectify it, and which professional you’ll trust to resolve it.
Avoiding the DIY Approach
It may be tempting to become a do-it-yourself plumber and restoration tech if your pipes freeze. However, it’s important to avoid the DIY approach when talking about water damage restoration. Not only is it inadvisable to assume the problem is solved because you’ve cleaned up the water, but unchecked leaks can also result in further damage to the structure of your home. Just because the water isn’t on the floor doesn’t mean the problem’s fixed.
One of the trickiest parts of dealing with a damaged home is finding the source of the water leaks. Once the source is identified, the leak then has to be tracked all the way to its final point to ensure all the damage is repaired. Failure to identify all the moisture (and extract it effectively) can quickly result in mold growth. For these reasons and more, avoiding a DIY approach is important when the plumbing has been damaged by extreme cold.
Calling on a Professional
When it comes to repairing and maintaining your home, it’s essential that you trust the contractor performing the service. Although response time is an important factor, an equally important one is working with a reputable, reliable, trusted service provider. A restoration company that can’t respond in a timely manner, no matter when your emergency occurs, isn’t going to be much help in the long run. Emergencies don’t punch a time-card; you need a professional contractor that can respond quickly, efficiently, and effectively.
