Water Damage When Pipes Cause Water Damage In New Castle County Have Water or Flood Damage? Call SERVPRO of Bear/New Castle Today – (302) 392-6000

If you’ve ever experienced water damage from a burst pipe in your home, you probably understand how stressful it can be, not to mention how expensive. Damaged items must be replaced, insurance claims must be submitted, and your life is on hold until everything is resolved. In addition, mold and mildew may compound the problem if not treated immediately. Fortunately, the professional water damage experts at SERVPRO of Bear/New Castle are available 24/7 to help you. 


Leaky Pipes

Pay close attention to leaky pipes and other plumbing problems that may create a constant source of moisture in your home. If you find a leaky pipe, get it repaired immediately. But don’t try to evaluate or diagnose the moisture problem yourself. Leave that to the professionals.


Preventing Structural Damage

When it comes to water damage, never procrastinate. It can easily lead to structural damage, and structural damage will only get worse if ignored. That’s why you should have a qualified contractor accurately assess the situation.


Mold Hazards

Mold is often considered the worst type of property damage.  The presence of mildew or mold damage can result in serious health problems for anyone residing in the home. The cellulose used to manufacture drywall is a favorite location for mold spores to proliferate. You should look for mold and mildew on a regular basis in areas that are typically damp, such as laundry rooms and basements. If you detect a water moisture problem, a mold inspection should be completed immediately.


Additional Considerations

Attempting to deal with water damage from a burst pipe without professional assistance is unwise. Few homeowners have the skills to repair such damage on their own. If you attempt to do so, you may inadvertently make the problem worse, leading to expensive repairs. It is best to hire a water remediation company experienced in a broad range of moisture problems, as they can provide services such as mold remediationcarpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning, and water removal. An experienced company will provide a complete evaluation of the water damage, including a monetary estimate for the necessary repairs. Before hiring a water damage restoration company, ask if the company’s technicians are certified in water damage restoration. Your home is your major investment; addressing water and moisture problems in a timely manner should be your top priority.
