ServiceMaster of Greater Washington
While discovering flooding in your home or building can be very overwhelming, it is crucial to contact a professional service immediately upon discovery. The water damage must be treated as soon as possible to contain the spread of the damage. Flooding involves a large amount of water entering the property, and the water will continue to spread throughout the property until it is effectively removed. Standing water can cause severe structural damage and possible mold growth.

Damage Caused by Flooding
Porous building materials, like wood and drywall, are especially vulnerable to severe water damage because these materials will absorb the water and moisture. The resulting damage includes staining, discoloration, warping, weakening, and the possible development of mold. If mold develops, it can lead to even more severe structural damage as well as pose a threat to the health of anyone nearby.
Sometimes natural flooding or sewage backups may occur and be the initial source of the flooding. If so, it is likely that the flood water is contaminated with sewage. This is dangerous because sewage water contains hazardous waste and bacteria that can spread infection and illness. For safety purposes, it is best to keep a safe distance from the water if you are unsure that it has been contaminated with sewage.
