One of the most common sources of property damage is excess water or moisture but the extent of the damage can initially be deceiving because of the way it gets absorbed into different building materials. Floods, rain, plumbing leaks, and sewage backups are all potential causes for water damage and once it begins, it will keep spreading through wood, drywall, and other absorbent building materials. ServiceMaster Disaster Restoration and Recovery provides water damage restoration services in Fremont, CA to remove excess water and moisture from absorbent building materials and structural elements. Our quick reaction will limit the spread of the damage and lower the risk of mold or mildew growth.
