Storm Damage Myth Debunked

6/17/2022 (Permalink)

A home that has experienced storm damage will always smell like water.


In reality, a storm-damaged home or business will smell like water and mold if it hasn’t been restored professionally. Storm and rain water can be much more damaging, due to the sheer amount, that many people are not prepared to adequately deal with it. That’s why prompt and thorough storm damage remediation must be performed by a professional.

Storm damage restoration must be exact, and contaminated areas must be dried, cleaned, and restored properly. If this doesn’t take place quickly, or the process is done at the hands of someone inexperienced, a house can have a lingering smell of water and mold. Even worse, secondary damage like mold can actually develop.
