Don’t Underestimate Spills And Leaks

Ignoring even the smallest leaks, spills, and puddles in your home can spell disaster. One of the biggest oversights committed by homeowners today is simply putting a towel over the affected area and considering the clean-up complete.

However, there are many problems that can be caused as a result of a spill or leak, including:

  • Mold growth
  • Old/musty odors
  • Warped floorboards
  • Respiratory problems

These are just some of the reasons why you need to act quickly and be thorough when it comes to cleaning and drying puddles and spills.

Remove Excess

The first thing you’ll want to do after a substantial flood, spill, or leak invades your home is to remove any excess water or moisture.

Utilize mops, towels, and other equipment to make sure that you are soaking up all of the excess — whether it’s from the carpet, the hardwood, or even the basement floor.

Be sure that you also gather and dry loose items and remove any rugs from the floor so that they can be dried separately and not cause stains or mold growth below.

Air It Out

As soon as you’ve identified the source of the leak or flood, it’s imperative that you get started on mitigating the issue.

Once the spill has been controlled, you can start clearing out and drying the area to prevent moisture build-up and ultimately limit mold growth.

Consider opening doors and windows in the room, and possibly bring in fans if they are available to help speed up the drying process.

This is especially important if the flood occured in/around the foundation of the home.
