When you think of water you are probably thinking of swimming pools, a thirst quencher, bathing, watering the lawn. What you aren’t thinking is how water can also cause serious damage to your Nassau County home. Even the smallest of leaks can wreak havoc. Not to mention that small leaks are the most difficult to find and can cause the most damage. Over time, a water leak left alone can cause structural damage to your home, mold can begin to thrive, metals rust, drywall swells, and the wood building materials may weaken.
At the first sign of a water-leak try and find the source if you can. Once the source of the leak is dealt with, call in a professional water cleanup team. You want to contact a water damage restoration crew, like the one at Ace Cleaning, who is available 24/7 and can assist you right away to prevent any additional damage from the remaining water…or potential mold damage.
