When water damage occurs, it is important to react quickly and address the situation before the water spreads and causes serious damage or mold growth. Homes and buildings are always vulnerable to water damage because it can be caused by rain and natural floods, as well as pipe bursts, backups, leaks, plumbing issues, and other problems. If water damage is not addressed right away, the water will have time to spread through porous building materials and furnishings, increasing the damage and the risk for mold growth.
At ServiceMaster of Salt Lake, we provide water damage restoration services in Ogden, UT to address any level of water damage from leaks to indoor flooding. Our technicians use advanced equipment to remove all water and moisture and ensure that the affected materials are thoroughly dried. We can also restore the resulting damage and help prevent mold growth in the affected areas.
Problems from Water Damage
Excess water within a home or building, whether it is from flooding or a leak, can lead to many problems. Most building materials and furnishings, such as wood, drywall, flooring, and furniture upholstery are porous and will absorb excess water. This allows the water to spread throughout the property and it puts the affected materials at risk of serious damage. Materials that absorb water are likely to experience stains, warping and rotting and structural elements made from wood and drywall may lose their structural integrity.
Mold is another issue that can result from water damage because mold spores need moisture to grow. Not just the affected materials, but areas with increased humidity from the water damage are vulnerable to mold growth. Mold can cause considerable damage to the affected materials and possibly lead to allergic reactions and other health issues in those who are exposed.
