Water Damage Can Spread Fast

12/2/2018 (Permalink)

Plumbing issues and storms can cause water damage but there is no time to cry over spilt milk. Your home needs your help and the SERVPRO of Ronkonkoma professionals are waiting to come in and save the day. Speed is everything when it comes to water and remember, we are “Faster to Any Size Disaster!”

Early Effects of Water Damage 

Water is a pest. It can get into the smallest of cracks, it can spread quickly and it can cause costly damage to your home. When a pipe bursts or a storm infiltrates your home, the following things can occur within a few hours:

  • Moisture can start to spread and lead to the early stages of mold reproduction.
  • Furniture can start to become discolored and delaminate.
  • Carpeting could be permanently damaged.
  • Humidity increases and odors become more pungent.

Long Term Water Damage

Water damage can become mold damage pretty quickly, especially if the issue is being ignored. When mold spores start to gather on furniture, carpeting or drywall, they reproduce quickly when there is increased humidity inside of a water damaged home. Here is what can happen in your home if water damage is ignored:

  • Mold growth can worsen.
  • Minor restoration techniques may  be passed over for a complete gutting of the home.
  • Microbial growth leads to possible dangerous conditions.
