One of the most common kinds of damage that can affect your home is water damage. Between flooding, storm damage or pipes that leak or burst, your home is very susceptible to different types of water damage.
With any kind of water damage comes other potentially dangerous and catastrophic
issues like bacteria and mold damage and electrical hazards, in addition to
structural damage. It is best to begin your residential water restoration as quickly
as possible, typically within the first 24-48 hours. If water is not extracted
immediately from the area, it can present a new range of issues. Mold, which needs
a water source and humidity to thrive, can grow and spread. It is incredibly
important to not only remove all excess water but to ventilate and dry the area as
soon as possible to prevent mold and bacteria, which can grow within hours. The
quicker you address water removal will mean less water damage repair.
