The Dangers of DIY Water Damage Restoration

Florida’s humidity leads to lush tropical flora outside, but it can result in complications indoors. Whether your piping burst or you have a malfunctioning HVAC unit, added moisture is the last thing you need in Valrico. Without proper regulation, unwanted condensation can take up residence in your home and create structural and health problems. Many people try to use their personal resources to save money, but DIY water damage restoration can lead to bigger issues down the line.

Safety Hazards

From exposure to clean-up, the safety hazards are limitless. Without professional equipment and knowledge, those who DIY can end up with more problems than they started with. Water damage restoration may seem as basic as getting rid of the liquid, but there is more to it than that.

Moving Damaged Belongings

Moving furniture and personal belongings can be a Herculean task in Valrico, especially because waterlogged items weigh even more. Immediate action is crucial, but strenuous lifting can lead DIYers to hurt themselves. Even if you’re accustomed to lifting and practicing proper form, you risk dropping wet objects because they are slippery. They could fall on your feet or hit the walls, so consider handing this load over to pros in the business.

Failure to Remove Hidden Moisture

If your Valrico floors are flooded, then you know where to start when it comes to removing the standing liquid. Few DIYers, however, are equipped to eliminate hidden moisture. You may think high-powered fans will do the trick, but thermal imaging often reveals wetness unseen by the naked eye. Unless the humidity in your home is regulated, you increase the chances of:

  • Structural issues
  • Mold growth
  • Bacterial growth

Separately, each of these can result in time-consuming and expensive complications. Structural repairs interfere with your personal life, and even if you delight in DIY projects, these are more severe than they are fun. Not to mention, mold and bacterial growth will compromise your health, as well as that of your family members and pets. This is why it is essential to complete water damage restoration correctly.
