ServiceMaster Cleaning and Restoration
Water damage is already damaging to homes and building structures, but floodwater poses far greater issues. The standing water will quickly invade the surrounding materials as those that are porous pose the highest risk of destruction. These materials include insulation, drywall, wood flooring, carpeting, and more. The risk for mold growth is also much higher due to the amount of water in the affected spaces.
Despite the overwhelming feelings of finding a flood in your home, don’t hesitate to call ServiceMaster Cleaning and Restoration for emergency flood cleanup and restoration services in Jacksonville, IL. Our technicians are each licensed and trained to respond immediately, extract the standing water, and dry out the affected space as soon as possible.
Flood Damage in Jacksonville, IL
Indoor flooding is known to be especially destructive to building materials, furnishings, and personal items like electronics and artwork. As soon as the damage occurs, our professionals must be contacted immediately to prevent the spread of the damage. All building materials are susceptible to warping, discoloration, and deterioration as they quickly absorb the water. Others can also become corroded or discolored with the exposure to water.
Some additional threats from excess water are mold and mildew. As the moisture accumulates in these spaces, mold spores develop and disperse into the breathing air, triggering a number of respiratory and allergy issues. The mold will also contribute to the breakdown of the building structure, causing deterioration and discoloration as it consumes the building materials.
Some situations involve sewage backups as contaminated water seeps into the structure. Sometimes, it’s difficult to determine whether or not the water is contaminated. But regardless, it’s best to avoid all contact. Many instances of flooding involve several bacteria and pathogens that will quickly contribute to disease and infection if handled improperly.
