How To Remove Musty Odours After Water Damage
What does water damage smell like and how do you know if you have water damage? If you have a musty smell in your home after a water leak, here's how to get quick and thorough remediation.

One of the first indicators of mould or a persistent leak is that your house will smell musty after water damage has occurred.

Once you find the area where the water is coming from, whether it be a leaking pipe, appliance, roof, crack in the foundation, sewage backup, or melting snow, it's time to contact the professionals to remove the water and dry the area.

If the water damage has led to mould, even after the water has been cleaned up, it's important to have it cleaned up as soon as possible.

For situations where a little mould has begun to form in areas like the bathroom, you can remove it using a diluted mixture of water and bleach, or water and vinegar.

If you notice that your house smells after water damage and realize it was caused by mould damage, contact our professional water damage restoration company and we will help you right away!
