Water leaks aren’t always immediately visible or explosive events such as a burst pipe. They can begin as a small drip or leak that goes undetected for months before damage becomes obvious. Water damage can also be the result of storms, flooding, septic problems, or water from extinguishing a blaze. When water damage is present it’s vital that a professional restoration and recovery team be engaged immediately.
When the problem is the result of a leak, by the time water damage becomes apparent it can already have spread within attics, behind walls and under floors. One small leak can result in thousands of dollars in damages that an insurance company may or may not cover, depending on the policy. No matter what the origin of water damage, addressing it should never be delayed.
Water damage begins to occur immediately. Mold flourishes in the warm, moist conditions that are predominant in Florida, along with various types of bacteria. Within the first 24 hours, drywall begins to break down and colors in fabrics will start to bleed. Paper items will be destroyed and a musty odor will be apparent.
By the second day, wood will warp, wallpaper will peel, and the entire environment will become a biohazard due to mold and bacteria growth. Even if the origin of the problem has been repaired or otherwise eliminated, there’s going to be a significant amount of clean-up and restorative work to complete. A restoration and recovery company can handle all phases of the process.
Since restoration companies often work closely with insurance companies, they can also provide savings. An additional benefit is that when a restoration company is called quickly, they have the technology, techniques and experience to salvage items ranging from furnishings to electronics. Salvageable items will be cleaned, mold and bacteria eliminated, and odors neutralized. Never delay water damage removal. Doing so creates a biohazard for people, pets and structures.
