Three Mistakes Homeowners Make when Beginning Water Damage Repair Work

Written by chrischambers on . Posted in , .

Water intrusion can have a lasting impact on the home and those living inside the property. For homeowners, it is imperative to research the response process to ensure that all water damage repair work is completed effectively and within a consolidated timeframe. But unfortunately, many make mistakes during this repair process. To help prevent others making those same mistakes, we’ll outline the three common mistakes homeowners make when beginning water damage repair work.
1. Forgetting to Unplug Electronics
Often, one of the largest expenses associated with water damage clean-up work is electrical system repair work. Homeowners may find themselves with a large repair bill if they don’t unplug systems such as televisions and space heaters after a water intrusion incident.
2. Taking their Time to Respond to the Problem
Another leading problem that can exacerbate water damage repair issues is inaction. While many homeowners have busy schedules involving work and social events, the safety of their home property must take precedence. Even the smallest water intrusion incident can lead to dangerous mold growth if it’s not responded to in a short period of time. This means homeowners simply have to act quickly and begin to plan their water damage repair response the moment a problem is recognized.
3. Not Selecting Qualified Contractors
Without the requisite experience within the water damage repair field, it’s very challenging to complete repair work effectively. There are elements of the job that only experienced professionals have the knowledge to complete. Many homeowners try to begin the process alone, only to make crucial mistakes that prolong the repair process and cause more damage to their property. By acting promptly and selecting a qualified specialist, homeowners can reduce their stress levels and limit their project costs.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
