Water damage causes billions of dollars worth of damage in the U.S. every year. Floods, broken pipes, and other high-volume sources of water are often to blame. If you experience severe water damage to your home or business, seek the help of a professional to contain the problem:
Water damage is cause for immediate concern. Nearly all aspects of water damage only get worse with time. That’s why it’s imperative to call a professional to contain and assess your water damage problem as soon as possible.
Prevent Damage from Spreading
The sooner you have an experienced team address your water damage, the better that damage can be contained to the affected area. A professional response means the area is quickly inspected and a plan is put into place. Water extraction keeps moisture from further seeping into your carpets, walls, and foundation.
Avoid Dangerous Mold Growth
One of the more common results of water damage is mold growth, which can occur out of sight in wall voids, air vents, and carpeted subfloors. Mold releases fungal spores into the air, which can cause respiratory problems when breathed in at high levels.
Avert Structural Damage
When the structural elements of your home absorb water, they warp and rot over time, damaging the structural integrity of your home. Calling a professional team to assess and repair your water damage promptly often saves you from more expensive repairs down the road.
Conserve Expensive Equipment
If you’ve experienced water damage at your business, prompt attention from a water damage expert could mean the difference between saving and losing expensive equipment. A professional may be able to salvage pieces of equipment either by using specialized drying techniques or preventing the spread of moisture to valuable items.
