Many homes and buildings experience water damage at some point because it can be caused by flooding, sewage, heavy rain, and leaks and the severity of the water damage can differ widely depending on the scope of the damage and how much time it is given to spread. Excess water can spread through a building rather easily by getting absorbed in porous building materials such as insulation, wood, and drywall which can lead to more extensive structural damage as well as mold growth.
