Flooding disasters are overwhelming to discover and can cause a widespread amount of damage to your home or building. The high volume of water must be removed as soon as possible so the restoration process can begin. If left unaddressed for too long, the water will be absorbed by the surrounding building materials and furnishings, leading to an extensive amount of damage. The water damage can also lead to mold growth if not treated in a timely manner.
ServiceMaster of Greater Washington provides professional flood damage restoration services to homes and buildings in Spotsylvania, VA. Our IICRC-certified technicians are ready to respond quickly to your call 24/7 so we can begin the restoration process as soon as possible.
Damage Caused by Flooding
Common causes of indoor flooding include basement floods, sewage backup, heavy rainfall, natural flooding, and burst pipes. When a high volume of water enters your home or building, the water will continue to flow down pathways of the least resistance, spreading the damage throughout the property.
Materials like drywall, wood, flooring, and insulation are porous, so they will absorb any water and moisture that they are exposed to. When faced with a large amount of water, these materials can become damaged much faster when flooding occurs. Water damage also provides the perfect environment for mold to grow because mold thrives in moist environments containing organic materials.
In some cases, floodwater may be contaminated with sewage. Sewage water poses a danger to the health and safety of anyone nearby because the hazardous waste and bacteria in the water can spread infections or diseases. It is crucial to keep a safe distance from the water, especially if you are unsure whether or not it has been contaminated.
