Most homes and buildings will be affected by water damage at some point because of the many things that can cause it. Anything that causes excess water or moisture in the home, including leaks, appliance problems, plumbing issues, rain, and natural flooding, can lead to major water damage. All water damage needs to be addressed immediately, no matter its extent, because water easily spreads through flooring, furnishings, and porous building materials like wood and drywall. It is possible for water damage to cause major structural damage and create the right conditions for mold growth to appear.
Coventry Services provides water damage restoration services in Chantilly, VA to help homes and businesses affected by excess water and flooding. Our technicians are IICRC certified and equipped to deal with any level of water damage within a home from damage caused by a leak to major flooding.
Damage from Water and Flooding
Any amount of excess water or moisture within a property can eventually cause widespread, significant damage. This is because water spreads through porous materials like flooring, carpeting, furnishings, wood, drywall, and more. Materials that take on the water may experience discoloration, buckling, and warping and when structural elements like drywall and wood take on too much water, their structural integrity could be threatened. This is why it is important to react quickly to any water damage as even water from a small leak can spread through the surrounding materials and cause significant damage.
Mold is another major issue that can occur due to water damage because mold growth thrives when there is a source of water or moisture. Areas affected by water damage are vulnerable to mold growth within 24-48 hours of the damage occurring. The appearance of mold growth will not only add to the damage, but also create hazardous conditions as exposure to mold can be detrimental to your health.
If you experience water damage on your property, taking the following steps right away will help limit your losses:
- Turn off the water main
