Water damage can completely destroy your home if you do not act fast enough. Calling a professional damage restoration service is really the only way to ensure that complete water extraction is done, and from there you can carry on with the cleaning restoration process.
Water damage can be caused by any number of sources, for example a leaking pipe, sewage back-ups, vandalism, hail damage, clogged guttering, natural disasters, hydrostatic pressure, leaking or congested crawl spaces and attics among others.
Whatever the cause of your water damage may be, prompt, thorough action is the key to preserving your home and for warding off health issues caused by water damage. You will need to start the water extraction immediately so you should use the services of a 24 hour damage restoration water service. This is crucial because if you leave the water to soak into your flooring or furniture it can cause irreparable damage.
Another problem can be mold and mildew that are toxic, and bring reactions such as immune disorders, pathogenic disease and cancer, and also causes allergic reactions like headaches, disorientation and dizziness, nausea, diarrhea, chronic asthma, open sores, rashes and chronic fatigue.
Once the mold has settled in your home due to water damage, they need moisture to begin growing. They can grow on wood, ceiling tiles, wallpaper, paints, carpet, sheet rock, and insulation. To control mold, we need to control moisture in our house. This is why it is so important to perform water extraction and get the cleaning restoration process underway.
