Even though heavy rains and flooding may sometimes have the same devastating effect on your home or commercial building as fires and other violent natural disasters, water may not always ruin your property in a matter of minutes. It may be slowly leaking from a broken pipe or a malfunctioning appliance for quite a long time before you notice any signs of damage.
The moisture will be spreading through all the absorbent materials in your property, slowly but steadily, and by the time you become aware of the problem, it may have already caused extensive structural damage and mold growth. Unless you take adequate measures as soon as possible, the damage may become irreversible or very difficult to deal with.
RestorationMaster provides efficient water damage restoration services to homes and businesses in Palm Harbor, FL, dealing with water problems. We will contain the water to prevent any further damage, will find and remove all the excess water from your property, and will finally dry and repair any water damaged structures and furnishings.
Have in mind that water damage can quickly become a major problem, even if it started out small. The excess moisture will get quickly absorbed into the porous building materials such as drywall, wood, and insulation, and will cause significant structural damage before you know it. The situation will get worse with time:
- Screws, nails and other metal fixtures begin rusting within minutes of water exposure;
- Wooden pieces start splitting, cracking, and warping within hours. Dye begins to leach from floor and wall coverings, lamination detaches from wood, particle board buckles, and carpets get stained in about the same time;
- Electronics corrode and mold growth appears within days.
