Water Damage Scenarios
Water damage disasters are never predictable and never an easy thing to deal with. Especially when you don’t have a plan of action in place. Water disasters can happen in a variety of different ways. Some include busted plumbing pipes, weather related, or even appliance malfunction.
For example… Let’s say a water hose attached to a refrigerator breaks, cracks, or comes loose, causing water to leak in your kitchen. Let’s assume this disaster occurred when you were out of town or even at work for eight hours, that can be a large amount of water damage happening in an eight hour window, let alone days if you were on vacation. With the amount of time the water will flow throughout your property, saturating cabinets, flooring, baseboards, or personal belongings, that will give the water enough time to cause water damage and even giving mold the opportunity to grow. Mold only needs 24 to 48 hours to start its growth process. This is the reason why we always encourage our local residence to give us a call to help and contain the affected areas to avoid secondary damages.
Trying to do things on your own usually tends to become worse if you’re not familiar with the right protocols to follow after a water damage situation. Always call a certified expert to help with these types of scenario’s.
