Water damage can become a disaster to the structure of your home if you do not act immediately. Water can enter through any crevice in your foundation and can cause many problems. Recently we have come across many customers that have not known they had water damage until mold started to surface on the outside of the sheetrock or growing on the edge of the carpet.
Mold is a hazard all on its on, but when you have a finished basement and there is a crack in that foundation or you do not have the right amount of landscaping around the outside of the foundation water will enter through the walls, with insulation in the walls it may take a few weeks for the mold to actually show up.
When that happens usually major damage has already been done. Drywall cannot be saved, and it depends on how bad the carpet is, if it can be saved. Now the pad will have to be removed. Most of the time though it is as simple as cleaning out your window wells, or recaulking around windows and doors.
If you feel your home has any kind of water issues call us today and we will come out and inspect it for you!
