Any amount of standing water in your home or office space can lead to tremendous damage if it is not removed quickly. The cause of the water must be addressed, as well. For property owners in Long Island, NY, excess water can come from flooding, sewage backups, major storms, leaks, burst pipes, and more. If any of this occurs in your building, we encourage you to contact our ServiceMaster Restoration Services representatives about our flood damage restoration services. We dry and restore flood damaged homes and businesses with our industry-leading equipment and methodologies.
The reason that indoor flooding is so dangerous is because of the extensive damage it can do to structural elements of your building, as well as various equipment and belongings found inside. Building materials such as wood, drywall, flooring, and insulation are all porous, which means water can easily penetrate them to cause and spread damage. The results can vary from warping and buckling to major structural damage. As for other contents of your property, they can be discolored, corroded, or rendered inoperable.
Flooding can also promote further problems like mold and bacterial growth. This is particularly troubling because of the significant health risks that individuals in the building may be exposed to. Mold can lead to worsening allergies and respiratory infections, while certain bacteria can cause sickness and other infections.
When sewage is involved, the situation worsens dramatically. This is because of the instantaneous presence of bacteria that can lead to diseases and infections. These situations mainly occur when there is a sewage backup because of a clog in the main sewer line. Regardless, the consequences can be severe if you do not have the problem resolved swiftly.
