Flood damage can have a devastating effect on your home or business. More than just destroying furniture, drywall, electrical wiring, carpeting and appliances, it can also cause cumulative water damage that can have far reaching effects on the building (Find out how important it is to repair your water damaged drywall).
Flood damage occurs when moisture seeps into walls, floorboards, framing, wooden trim and other components. In time, water will bend, warp, swell, rot, or even harbor mold and mildew growths. Our team understands the ramifications and they do everything they can to ensure that your home is restored properly and thoroughly.
Time is important when dealing with flood damage. When you choose effective emergency clean-up services, you’re also choosing to prevent any other problems that you may not have noticed for weeks or even months.
Floods and water damage bring other less obvious dangers such as the possibility of mold onset and the structural weakening of saturated structures, both indoor and outdoor. Possible outdoor problems include: weakened retaining walls, hillsides vulnerable to mudslides, tree or branch falls due to water-logged foliage or loosened soil around roots. Indoor problems include: mold growth, weakened structures such as walls and ceilings (from ground water or roof leakages), electrical issues, and the health contamination that comes with sewage back-flows.
