About That Water Damage

11/22/2021 (Permalink)

Most of the water-damaged homes we see and clean up are from water within the home. In either case, it's usually a good idea to let the professionals extract the water, clean up, and restore your flood-damaged home. 

How Does the Water Get in?

There are many ways water can get into your home or business and damage it. Toilets, sinks, dishwashers, and washing machines can slowly leak behind walls, under floors, and inside cabinets. Sewers can back up into basements and through the drains on lower levels of homes. Rainwater from a massive storm can blow into cracks and crevices around your windows and doors, causing water damage that may not be discovered quickly, allowing mold to develop and cause further damage. During the winter months, pipes exposed to cold temperatures can freeze and burst.

Call us at the First Sign of Damage

A slow, subtle water leak behind a wall or under a floor can often be much worse and cause more damage than a sudden flood of water from say, an ice maker line breaking. A sudden quick surge of clean water onto the floor can quickly be removed and dried while the slower and undetectable leak may go on for days or weeks before noticed. In this case, the clean water from a slow leak then becomes unsanitary containing harmful contaminants. Sometimes these leaks are noticed by the smell of bacteria and mold growth or soft spots in the flooring.
