Finding that your home or building is affected by indoor flooding is an overwhelming experience. You may not know what to do to have the water removed and if the problem isn’t addressed quickly, it can lead to major damage. Indoor flooding can occur as the result of heavy rain and natural floods as well as pipe bursts, backups, and any other internal issues that can put a lot of water in your property. This amount of water is very dangerous because it can quickly get absorbed in surrounding materials, leading to serious structural damage and mold growth.

About Indoor Flooding
Water damage can cause serious issues in a home or building including extensive damage and dangerous conditions. Any amount of water can cause damage to the surrounding furnishings and building materials, but the damage from standing water is much worse because it gets absorbed faster and can cause staining, discoloration, and warping. Porous building materials like drywall flooring, subflooring, wood, and furniture will absorb the water and allow it to spread, and these materials can also experience structural damage.
While structural damage is a major concern when flooding occurs, there is also a chance flooding can create conditions that are dangerous for your health:
- Contaminated water: Depending on the source of the flooding, it is possible that the water is contaminated. Flood water may be mixed with sewage or dirty water from the plumbing that can contain microorganisms and other harmful materials. You must avoid contact with flood water that may be contaminated.
- Mold growth: Mold growth is always a possibility after a flood because mold thrives in moist environments. Areas and materials affected by the flooding are vulnerable to mold and even nearby areas may experience mold growth because of the increased moisture.
