Sometimes a leak from the dishwasher cable or refrigerator, if caught early, can be cleaned up with old towels or a mop. But in other cases, you may need professional help to set your home back to its original state and prevent further damage to your property.
Signs to Look for When Dealing With Water Damage

You notice signs of mold. Does your home have a musty odor? That can be among the first signs of mold damage, meaning if you notice that scent, it’s time to call in a professional to help you deal with remediation issues.

You notice issues with the windows or walls in your home. Like your floors, your window panes and walls can start to warp if the water damage is severe enough.
