Why is Emergency Water Damage Restoration Necessary

Why is Emergency Water Damage Restoration Necessary?

Water damage should be cleaned up as soon as possible to prevent secondary problems. If unaddressed water damage waits too long, it will become more serious. Our experts know how to handle water damage emergencies since they are certified and experienced. To restore and prevent further damage, rapid response is critical to preventing the spread of water damage. 

Water damage restoration needs to be started as soon as possible for three reasons.

Prevent the spread of water 

It is essential to respond quickly to water damage to prevent it from spreading. Water is a corrosive substance that spreads quickly by taking the shortest path. When you have water damage in your house, it can go through walls, under flooring, and all-around your home. Sitting water will saturate everything it comes into contact with. To protect structural materials, like wood and drywall, they will absorb water. The reaction to full saturation often results in bucketing, cracking, and deterioration. When the water in your home is not extracted and wholly dried as soon as possible, it will cause severe structural damage to your home. 

Mold prevention

Mold can begin to grow as soon as 24 to 48 hours after water damage. For mold to grow, it needs moisture, food, and time. Therefore, mold proliferates in your home when there is water damage. However, mold can cause severe health problems when it grows indoors.

Spores are responsible for mold’s growth and reproduction. As spores, molds can reach places that are not accessible. Therefore, all occupants of a house could be at risk of inhaling mold spores. To eliminate mold, it is essential to clean and disinfect the area thoroughly. Mold growth and spread are significantly increased when water damage is not addressed quickly.

Restore Your Home Successfully

It’s essential to restore your home and your life as soon as possible after water damage. If it can be started immediately, the restoration process for water damage is pretty straightforward. Water can be cleaned from the source, water extracted and then drying and dehumidifying can begin. However, water damage and structural damage caused by mold growth are likely to take much longer to repair if they have been allowed to sit for too long. The restoration process will be delayed and cost more if materials and structures become waterlogged. In addition, proper treatment needs to be given to prevent mold from returning after removal.
