You know what they say: April showers bring May… roof leaks and water damage? While rainy weather is something the Seattle area is no stranger to, that doesn’t mean everyone’s home is ready to receive large amounts of precipitation. We are in the tail-end of the rainy season right now, but that doesn’t mean your home is off the hook.
One important thing to remember about water damage is that it’s not always as obvious as finding water where it shouldn’t be. Water damage can look – and smell – like any number of things. Just a few examples of possible water damage are musty, unpleasant odors, peeling paint, stains on the walls or ceilings, or sagging pockets on walls or ceilings.
If you notice any of these issues, be sure you know who to call. High Tech Pacific Builders is your Bellevue-area handyman service and home repair contractor. Whether you simply need a patch of drywall replaced or need your home structure repaired, we are the Bellevue home repair experts to call. Keep reading to learn more about water damage in the home and what we can do to help repair and prevent it.
HTP Builders Are Your Licensed Home Repair Experts
When you have little issues that need to be fixed, you may get on the internet and search for something along the lines of “handyman near me.” Keep in mind that many people who tout themselves as a “handyman” are not licensed to do home repairs. If they cause damage to your home or injure themselves on your property, you might be out of luck in a legal battle. HTP Builders, on the other hand, we offer home repair in Bellevue for complex issues as well as handyman services for smaller jobs. We are licensed, bonded, and insured so you know you are only getting above-the-board work done on your home by certified contractors who know what they are doing.
Home repair after heavy rainstorms or prolonged water damage can include a combination of issues, and often times if you have one problem that you can see, there are more issues hiding in the walls or attic. Here are just a few common home repairs needed after major rain or floods:
- Drywall repair
- Tearing up and replacing carpet
- Foundation repair
- Gutter repair
- Roof leak repair
- Shingle repair
- Ceiling repair
If you are in need of any of these services, it is important to call your local home repair company, HTP Builders, as soon as possible. This is especially important if you have small children, elderly family members, or anyone with a compromised immune system living in the house. Water damage can lead to a myriad of health risks that you may not even be aware of.
Health Risks Of Water Damage
- Sanitary hazards due to standing water and possible sewage drainage into your home
- Structural damage such as rot
- Electrical risks from water coming into contact with wiring
- Musty, foul smells and poor air quality
- Mold, which can trigger asthma attacks, migraines, dizziness, and worse conditions as exposure goes on
