What Damage Can Floods Cause
A flood in your home whether if it's from a pipe, roof or storm can cause severe damage to your home. Here is a list of common damages after water is present in a home.
- Mold growth - water/moisture is one of the main nutrients for mold to grow in a home and it can happen as fast as 24-48 hours after water is present.
- Damaging wood - when wood absorbs water and the moisture contents become too high it will begin to cup or crown, split or even rot if not attended to.
- Furniture/Upholstery - your furniture and upholstery are made of different types of materials, some may be more resistant to water than others, but many pieces of furniture will stain, discolor or even worse if not cleaned properly after being exposed to water.
- Electronics - no surprise here, water touching electronics is almost a guarantee to damage and break the electronic preventing future use. The good news is some of those pieces of electronics might be able to be saved in our contents restoration facility. Call us today to find out.
