While any amount of water inside a building can cause damage, flooding can lead to utter devastation. Your building can become structurally unsound as floors, ceilings, walls, and other structural components are damaged, while personal belongings and other valuable assets can become permanently damaged as well. Particularly at risk are porous materials such as:
- Many furnishings
These elements are at such a great risk because water can easily penetrate them to cause and spread damage. Discoloration and corrosion are common effects, as are warping and buckling of structural materials.
There are many more problems that can arise from indoor flooding. Two of the major ones are mold growth and the spread of contaminated water.
- Mold Growth: Mold and bacteria can begin to grow in areas affected by excess moisture. This is obviously evident in cases of indoor flooding. These substances can lead to additional structural damage within your building, and potentially cause health problems for those exposed to it.
- Contaminated Water: Contaminated water (such as water that contains sewage) is a unique challenge because of the presence of harmful bacteria. When handled improperly, contaminated water can lead to the transfer of infections and diseases.
