Did you know that delaying your response to a water intrusion can really cost you? In fact, in as few as 24 hours, you could start to see mold beginning to grow. We worked on a home doing water damage restoration in Ambler, PA and found that due to high heat and lots of moisture, it was necessary to remove some of the sheetrock in the basement since the homeowner hadn't seen the water damage for a few days. This could have been avoided had the home been dried out immediately. It is a good idea to check your basement for water damage after storms, and even at regular intervals just as a precaution. Sooner is better in the water damage restoration world!
