Water damage can absolutely be hidden. You should always be on the lookout for water spots, a pungent odor of mildew, or visible signs of mold.
If you would like us to speak with your adjuster, we are more than happy to do so. Just let us know.
Mold will present itself in dark gray, green, or even black blotches on surfaces. It will likely be raised and textured, unlike mildew, and is typically accompanied by a mildew-like odor.
Mold and mildew are in the same family of fungi. The difference is that mold must be professionally remediated to fully remove it from your property, while mildew can simply be wiped away. Mold spreads easily and can be dangerous to your health, so expert assistance is always recommended.
Due to the dangers of mold, we advise you to leave the removal to us. The inhalation of mold spores can lead to adverse health effects and long-term illness.
We use professional equipment and extensive training to identify mold throughout your home. We check behind walls and under flooring to determine the true extent of the damage; anything missed will only cause another infestation, so we ensure a thorough assessment of your property.
Water damage can be caused by many different things: appliance leaks, burst pipes, plumbing leaks, flooding from natural disasters, and more.

Water can cause additional damage to a property the longer it sits. It can saturate and deteriorate possessions and building materials, and lead to mold growth. Acting fast is imperative when it comes to water damage.
After the first responders have extinguished the fire, your first priority is to ensure that all of your family members and pets are safe. After everyone has been accounted for, call us immediately to assess your property and begin a restoration plan.
