An unfortunate event like a roof leak, flooding, or a burst pipe can leave a home soaking wet and vulnerable to water damage. This video discusses possible causes of water damage, the dangers associated with water damage, and what a water restoration service can do to mitigate damage. One little-known fact about water damage restoration is that the faster one acts, the better.
Mold grows fast. It can begin to grow and spread in as little as 24 hours.
Apart from mold spores causing allergic reactions and sensitivity, the type of water causing the damage poses a risk. Blackwater, in particular, is a biohazard and should be left to the experts for cleanup. The other fact concerns the dangers of wading into the water. There is a possibility that it is electrically charged and dangerous. Therefore, one should turn off the electricity to any affected area as soon as possible. The last fact is that the problem doesn’t end when the water is gone. Traces of water may remain, which is why a water restoration service needs to monitor the situation afterward to ensure complete drying.
