Flood Cleanup Hastings, NE
Water damage is already dangerous because of how it can spread through porous materials and create conditions for mold growth. With standing water, the damage is much more extensive as it covers more ground and gets absorbed into the surrounding materials much faster. Building materials like woodwork, drywall, flooring, subflooring, and various furnishings will become warped and rotted very quickly if the water is not removed. There is also a good chance that any personal belongings affected could sustain serious or even permanent damage.
As porous building materials absorb flood water, they may become rotted or weakened which is dangerous for their structural integrity. Wood flooring and subflooring can also become ruined as it can warp and buckle from the flood water.
In addition to the potential for structural damage, you must watch out for the following when dealing with indoor flooding:
- Contaminated water: Flood water is likely to be contaminated by sewage or other dangerous microorganisms that can be found in dirty water from plumbing fixtures or appliances. If you suspect that the water is contaminated, make sure you stay at a safe distance.
- Mold growth: Mold grows best in areas affected by moisture and indoor flooding makes your entire home vulnerable. Even materials not directly affected by the flooding may be moist from the presence of the water which puts them at risk.
