It is critical to respond promptly to water damage that occurs in your home or building because the materials are at risk of becoming severely damaged within 24 hours. This is especially true for flood damage because the high volume of water can spread and cause severe damage as the building materials will absorb the water and become warped and weakened. Mold is a common result of water damage and can cause even more severe damage to the building materials.
ServiceMaster of Greater Washington provides professional flood damage restoration services to homes and buildings in Fredericksburg, VA. Our IICRC-certified technicians are prepared to handle flood damage of any size using top-quality flood extraction equipment.
Damage Caused by Flooding
When building materials are exposed to any amount of water such as during a basement flood, they will absorb the water and moisture, becoming damaged. The damage that occurs can happen much faster if caused by flooding because of the high volume of water that the materials are exposed to at one time.
Damage caused by flooding includes warping, discoloration, weakening, staining, and mold growth.
Mold growth is dangerous because it is a threat to the health and safety of anyone exposed to it and it causes severe property damage. Mold is commonly the result of untreated or poorly treated water damage because mold needs a moist environment and organic materials to thrive.
Sometimes the flood water that enters your home or building might contain sewage. If this is the case, then it is critical to keep a safe distance from the water. Sewage water poses a serious health and safety risk because the bacteria and hazardous waste in the water can spread infections and diseases.
