Water damage comes in many different scopes and sizes and from many different sources – making it totally unpredictable. With all the unknowns associated with water damage, there are a few key things that you should know concerning the restoration process:
The best way to ensure a successful water damage restoration for your home is to get the water cleaned up as quickly as possible. Water damage compounds over time, making every day, hour, and even minute crucial to mitigating damages. One of the most time sensitive aspects of water damage is mold growth. Water facilitates mold growth within 24 hours, so it can very quickly become a serious problem. Mold will continue to grow and spread until all the water and excess moisture has been removed. This is one of the reasons why a fast response to water damage is so important. Damage to your personal belongings and the structural elements of your home also worsen over time. As materials like wood, carpet, padding, upholstery, and drywall (just to name a few) are exposed to water, they absorb the excess moisture leading to deterioration, swelling, warping, buckling, and rot (again, just to name a few). This makes cleanup even harder, and most likely leads to more extensive and expensive repairs. Some structural elements may even require being replaced if water damage is present for extended amounts of time. Every second counts when it comes to a successful water damage restoration, so do not waste any time.
Without the use of professional-grade water extraction and drying equipment, it is nearly impossible to achieve efficient results. Water seeps into many of the materials in our home when it comes in contact with them, and will remain trapped there without the use of thermal imaging detectors and dehumidifiers. Even when it appears to the naked eye that all the water has been removed, this hidden moisture can remain and facilitate mold growth and deterioration. The best way to ensure all excess moisture is removed along with all the water is to utilize industry-proven techniques through industry-approved equipment.
