Water damage is a major concern to home and business owners because of the variety of ways in which it can occur, and the devastation it can cause to your building and belongings. This is particularly true for residents of Toms River, NJ, who are subjected to major storms and blizzards in addition to already common causes of water damage like burst pipes, leaks, and sewage backups. If you do experience water damage on your property, we encourage you to contact our ServiceMaster of the Shore Area representatives as quickly as you can. We specialize in water damage restoration services, and can help to both limit the extent of the damage, and restore your property to its original condition.
The Problems of Water Damage
There are nearly endless issues that can arise when water begins to seep into your home or office space. Most troubling is the damage it can cause to structural elements of your building (e.g. wood, sheetrock, flooring, etc.), as well as personal and professional belongings. Warping, discoloration, swelling, and more can all occur. To make matters worse, the porous nature of many of these materials allows the water to quickly spread to other areas of your property, which is another reason why a prompt response is so important.
Another severe issue that can arise from water damage is the growth of mold. Mold loves to grow in moist environments that also contain an organic food source (many buildings are constructed with materials that mold can feed on). Once mold catches hold in one area, it can easily spread to more, which can cause structural damage, health complications, and other troubles for you and anybody else living or working in close proximity.
