Homeowner Tips on Major Home Repairs Like Water, Termite or Mold Damage

With the excitement of selling your home comes the responsibility of taking care of it when damage occurs and you need repairs. Termites will eat away at the foundation. Water will damage the roof. And mold will cause ugly stains and health issues. Repairing the damage can be a huge and costly task. The first step we must take when we address any home repair is assessing the damage. The next step is to determine the costs involved and last, hire a professional to come in make the repairs.

Water Damage
Although it may seem harmless, water can do serious damage to a home and cost a great deal to repair. Most statistics show it will cost between $1,045 and $3,885 to repair the damage done by water to a home.  It’s best to have a professional check out the damage and repair it.

Termite Damage
More than fire, water, and natural disasters, those pesky termites do the most damage to a home. Part of the problem is that they’re so tiny they’re nearly invisible to the eye. Once they enter a home they slowly, but surely eat away at the house without us even being aware of it until it’s too late and there’s thousands of dollars worth of damage. Statistics from the National Pest Management Association show termites have done more than $5 billion in damages a year.
The best way to prevent termite damage is to have regular exterminations done to your house by a professional. If it’s too late and you want to do it yourself, it’s best to still get recommendations from a professional.

Mold Growth Damage
Mold can occur quickly with little warning. It especially grows when there has been water damage. Be sure to confront mold quickly to avoid health problems and major damage to your home. Avoid direct contact with the mold. Be sure to turn off fans and anything that increases air circulation.  It’s best to get a professional to remove it. The cost range for mold damage is from $400 to $6000 depending on the damage.

One way to avoid costly repairs and time-consuming renovations are to be preventative when it comes to taking care of your home. Don’t let moisture build up so it can cause mold. If you start seeing signs of mold, take care of it on the spot. Avoid water damage by making sure you protect your roof well. Hire a professional rodent or termite exterminator to visit your house once or twice a year. Although you may have to pay a professional to conduct inspections and regular maintenance, it beats paying hundreds, even thousands, later to them for repairs.

It’s best to move to a temporary location while repairs are being made to your house from water, mold or termite damage. This prevents health issues from occurring and allows the professionals to do a thorough job.
