Water Damage Restoration in Cathedral City, CA

RestorationMaster

(626) 415-3677

More cases of property damage are caused by water and flooding than by any other source.  This is because water can get into homes and buildings due to weather conditions like rain and flooding, as well as problems within the property including leaks, plumbing and appliance issues, burst pipes, overflows, sewage backups, and more.  If there is excess water on your property, it can spread through porous building materials and furnishings and damage these materials as it spreads.  Excessive water damage can cause structural damage to materials like wood and drywall and increase the risk of mold growth.

RestorationMaster provides water damage restoration services in Cathedral City, CA to help dry and restore affected homes and businesses.  Our technicians use advanced water extraction and drying equipment to remove all water and dry affected materials.  After the extraction and drying process is complete, we will restore the resulting damage.

Problems with Water and Flooding

Whenever water damage occurs, there is always a chance of major damage and mold growth.  Many building materials and furnishings found in homes and buildings such as wood, drywall, carpeting, flooring, and insulation are porous.  This means that water can easily spread through these materials, so even water from a minor leak can spread through the surrounding drywall and eventually cause major damage.  The porous materials that take on the water may weaken, warp, and buckle and for materials like wood and drywall, there is a risk of structural damage.

The other major problem that occurs with flooding and water damage is the appearance of mold. Mold spores thrive in moist conditions which is why mold can appear between 24 and 48 hours after water damage occurs.  The presence of mold will not only add to the damage, but also create a hazardous environment as those exposed to mold can suffer allergic reactions and other negative health effects.
