Understanding The Water Damage Process
?If your home or office has suffered from water damage, you know how difficult the restoration process can be. Various factors, including floods, storms, leaks, etc, can cause water damage. It is important to take action immediately! When left untreated, water damage can lead to an increase in insects, rotting wood within the wall/floor structures, and mold growth that can damage the overall air quality. The longer you wait to start the restoration process, the greater the chance for further damage to occur.
The first step in the water damage restoration process is to assess the damage and determine the best course of action. If the water is not continuously flowing, has not flooded the floors, or is considered contaminated (toilet or sewage backup), you are most likely not in an emergency situation. If you are in an emergency situation, please call SERVPRO® as soon as possible so our Rapid Response Team can provide relief to your home or business.
