Water damage of any amount is concerning and must be addressed immediately upon discovery. Flooding especially is a major concern because it involves a high volume of water that can spread faster throughout the property and cause significant damage. The sooner that the standing water and resulting damage are addressed, the sooner the flood restoration process can begin.
ServiceMaster of Greater Washington provides professional flood damage restoration services to homes and buildings in Manassas, VA. Our IICRC-certified flood cleanup crews are available 24/7 to respond promptly to emergency situations such as basement floods.
Damage Caused by Flooding
Porous building materials such as wood, drywall, insulation, and flooring are the most susceptible to becoming damaged by water during an event such as a flood in the basement. When exposed to water, these materials will become warped, discolored, stained, and weakened. If the damage is not addressed in a timely matter, then the materials are at risk of developing mold.
Mold can cause severe allergic reactions and lead to further structural damage. Mold is also dangerous to remove without the proper equipment and training, so it is safer to leave the mold for professionals to handle.
In some situations, floodwater might contain sewage. Sewage water can spread infections and illnesses due to the hazardous waste and bacteria contained in the water. Sewage water can be dangerous to come into contact with, so it is best to maintain a safe distance if you are unsure whether or not the water contains sewage.
