The Importance of Fixing Leaks in Your Dekalb Home

6/1/2020 (Permalink)

As rain continues to pour in Deklab County, maintenance on your beautiful home is crucial to keeping everything in working order. Small things such as fixing any leaks can go a long way for our Dekalb home.

By simply fixing any leaks in your roof, window, or pipes, it will prevent further damage such as mold growth. In general, try to clean and dry areas subjected to water within 48 hours to help prevent further damage. If you believe materials are wet and cannot be completely dried, completely remove them to be replaced. It might seem like an extra hassle to completely replace materials, but when left wet, it can lead to additional issues, like mold growth.

We recommend replacing wet insulation with mold resistant insulation. Also consider replacing drywall with boards containing mold and moisture inhibitors. This is a great way to keep your insulation and drywall dry while protecting it from further damage.  Insulation is a very powerful tool because it manages the building’s temperature and moisture. Insulation will support dry, temperature-controlled conditions that inhibit mold growth. Spray polyurethane foam is a great type of insulation for your Dekalb home. It seals cracks, holes, and other defects in the building’s structure. This creates a tight seal and will reduce the air and moisture flow.

Unfortunately, sometimes accidents still happen! When you experience water damage from leaks or other sources, this is when you need to call SERVPRO of Dekalb County to service your needs!
