Due to the various ways that water and excess moisture can enter a home or building, water and flood damage are very common in homes and properties. Accidents like leaks, overflows, burst pipes, sewage backups, and heavy rain can cause severe damage to one’s property and belongings. But if immediate action is not taken, the water will spread to other areas, worsening the damage and threatening mold growth.
The drywall, insulation, and flooring provide perfect breeding grounds for this fungus to flourish, which is why immediate action must be taken to prevent the situation from becoming worse. RestorationMaster is available in Minnetonka, MN to provide complete water damage restoration services for homes and businesses, extracting excess water and drying out the affected areas with professional equipment. We can also restore building materials during sewage backups, or water that is contaminated with biohazards.
Problems Caused by Water Damage
RestorationMaster considers all water damage situations emergencies because water creates bigger problems as it spreads. As water is absorbed into porous materials like carpeting, drywall, ceiling tile, wood flooring, etc., the affected materials become soiled and buckle. While some materials can be restored if restoration services are called right away, others will need to be replaced immediately.
Mold growth is the most dangerous problem that stems from water damage. While the fungus needs moisture and an organic food source to grow, the cellulose contained within porous materials creates the perfect food source. As soon as it develops, it disperses its spores into the air, triggering allergies, breathing issues, and other health problems. To best prevent this problem, it’s best to react immediately to water damage.

The most dangerous type of water damage involves sewage backups. When they occur, there is a specific blockage that pushes the contaminated water back into the property. Sewage backups can also occur with natural flooding, bringing in biohazards from forest animals or chemicals from nearby areas. As it causes extensive damage, sewage water increases the risk of a number of illnesses and diseases. RestorationMaster has equipment that is designed to remove the contaminated water, completely extracting it out, and we will also thoroughly disinfect and dry the area.
