How Can I Tell if I have Water Damage?

5/23/2020 (Permalink)

Some customers have asked us, SERVPRO of Rochester, to come out to their home to make sure after they had some water come up a drain if they cleaned it up and that there's no other damage. 

It is very deceptive if you simply look at the floor, walls or ceiling after you have "cleaned up the water".  

SERVPRO of Rochester comes out to the customer's home to take a visual assessment and to take moisture readings of the affected areas. It is vital to your home that you call us to come out to make sure that you don't have any other materials affected in your home. You cannot believe the number of jobs we have looked at, taken moisture readings of the door jambs, trim, walls, and ceilings besides the carpet and pad that are 100% affected.  

Having materials affected in a water damage and not taking them out will make mold growth. This creates a whole new mess. Many insurance companies will not cover mold after a water damage that wasn't reported and mitigated by an IICRC company, like SERVPRO of Rochester.
