DIY Water Damage Restoration & Why It's a Bad Idea
More and more people are becoming do-it-yourselfers. It seems that everyone with an internet connection is on YouTube trying to figure out how they can save money by performing services themselves.
While that is an excellent idea when you have to hooking up a home theater system or mounting a TV to the wall, however, attempting to perform your own water damage mitigation drying or mold remediation, it's definitely not something that should be attempted on your own. You can rent dehumidifiers and fans, maybe even air filtration equipment, but there are consequences for not performing mitigation services properly. There have been circumstances where the homeowners have rented a few dehumidifiers attempting to dry out the property from a major size water damage job. We applaud their efforts, they don't have the proper training, knowledge and or tools to successfully perform this work. In fact, you need to know how to use the equipment and placement of the equipment or you end up causing more harm and spending more money than anticipated.
