Flooding is a major problem when it happens indoors because it causes serious property damage that could lead to other issues such as mold growth and structural damage. Standing water indoors may come from natural flooding that enters a home or building as well as other internal sources like a pipe burst, sump pump failure, or appliance leak. When there is standing water in your property, you need to act fast as the water will quickly penetrate porous furnishings and materials which leads to widespread property damage. The best course of action is to call a water damage restoration professional right away.
At AfterCare Restoration, we provide flood cleanup in Ancient Oaks, PA to help homes and businesses affected by flooding. Our technicians will respond to your call immediately to begin extracting the flood water and restoring your property.
Any amount of water within a home or building can cause damage but indoor flooding is especially dangerous because of the amount of water involved. Porous building materials and furnishings like flooring, subflooring, wood, drywall, insulation, and carpeting and area rugs will absorb the flood water. This results in damage to the affected materials such as warping and corrosion and allows the water to spread further throughout your home or building. If structural elements like wood and drywall absorb too much water, major structural damage may occur.
When indoor flooding occurs, the area may be hazardous due to contaminants or mold growth. It is always possible for flood water to be contaminated with debris, sewage, and microorganisms that can be harmful to your health. The presence of so much water can also quickly cause the appearance of mold and mildew which will add to the damage.
