Once a water leak starts, it doesn'tt matter how big or small it may be. It can rapidly escalate causing un-seen water damage and needs to be dealt with as quickly as possible to limit the effects it may have. This results in lower costs and minimizingany disruption. Exactly the same would apply for flood
Water has the ability to not only to corrode but it can also encourage the breeding of life forms such as bacteria and mold. Then of course there are other worrying effects such as damage caused by swelling which can lead to cracks. There is also the danger that can arise from water getting into electrical components.
With primary water damage you are usually able to instantly identify the destruction that has been caused. One of the main problems you could face is the secondary damage that may not be as clear. Moisture can quickly change from a liquid to water vaporwhich can then travel around the property. Once this vaporre-condenses it can then be absorbed by porous materials.
It is essential that all water damage repairs are completed professionally and thoroughly from the assessment of secondary damage. Otherwise this may cause damage that may not be noticed for many years to come.
Damage That Occurs From Water
Water is known as the universal solvent for very good reasons. Where water damage occurs, the water has the ability to corrode and magnify existing life forms such as mold and bacteria. It can cause various other damaging effects ranging from cracking and swelling of products to faults in electrical components.
Water damage can not only be caused by flooding as it can also result from a fire. Water from the effects of putting a fire out can cause even more damage than the fire alone. Our contractors are fully aware of this and are at hand to help you through the whole fire and flood restoration process.
Initial water damage is called primary damage and the effects are usually instantly identifiable, what is harder to see is the secondary damage as the moisture changes from liquid to vaporand travels throughout the building causing secondary damage. It then re-forms in condensation to be absorbed by porous materials, creating damage that could pop up in several years time. We treat the affected surrounding materials to prevent secondary damage such as dry rot and mold spores.
Secondary damage and its subsequent effects are often preventable, which is why it is essential that all water damage repairs are conducted thoroughly and professionally.
