Water Damage

Water indoors is an abnormal condition and can cause or contribute to a number of problems. The damage and health implications increase the longer materials remain wet.

Water migrates into areas not originally affected; it spreads laterally into adjoining rooms, penetrates materials below and wicks up into porous materials above. It is best to evaluate all affected areas not just areas with visible saturation. As water evaporates it causes an abnormal humidity condition, this high humidity can damage some porous materials if allowed to continue. Humidity damage is most common when the indoor humidity exceeds 60 percent.

After water intrusion, mold and bacterial spores germinate and multiply. Given acceptable growth conditions, one organism can multiply to more than one billion organisms in less than 24 hours. Within 72 hours microorganisms can cause mold damage and degrade indoor air quality. Some microorganisms produce antigens and allergens which cause allergies while others can cause infections and disease.

Broken pipes, toilet overflows, ice damming, roof leaks, dishwasher leaks, hot water heater and washing machine malfunctions are just a few of the different types of water damage your home can sustain.
