Water is a necessity in our homes and it is also one of the leading causes of property damage. Excess water and moisture can be very damaging within a home or building because many building materials such as wood, insulation, and drywall are porous. These materials will absorb water and moisture which can result in warping, discoloration, and eventually structural damage. Hesitating to deal with water damage will not only allow it to spread over a larger area, but also increase the risk of mold growth which will cause additional damage and put your health at risk. You must act immediately at the first sign of water damage to prevent the situation from becoming serious.
At ServiceMaster SDC, we provide complete water damage restoration services to help homes and businesses in Superior, WI recover from flooding and water damage. We use advanced extraction and drying equipment to remove water from the affected materials and we can restore the damaged areas while preventing mold growth.
Effects of Water Damage
Water can be more dangerous than it seems because of its ability to get absorbed by common building materials. Porous building materials will experience discoloration and warping when they take on water and they may weaken to an extent that threatens their structural integrity. The affected materials will also be at a much higher risk for mold growth which will increase the damage. Reacting quickly to water damage will help you limit its spread and prevent worst case scenarios including structural damage and mold.
Our technicians at ServiceMaster SDC will immediately assess the extent of the water’s spread and work to contain the damage. We have the right extraction and dehumidification equipment to extract standing water and moisture absorbed by affected materials. We will also ensure that affected areas are cleaned and restored to prevent mold and other issues.
Our technicians treat water damage with these basic steps:
- Assessment of the spread and extent of the damage
