Water Damage: What Is It and Why Does It Happen?

Water damage occurs when there is a leak in the roof, a plumbing leak, or any other pipe leak within the home, which then allows water to seep into the house. When you notice that the walls are wet and the smell of mold is coming from them, you are likely to have some water damage in your home. Please call us if you experience anything like this at your house so we can assist you.

A team member will be able to assess the problem and provide a solution as soon as possible. The important thing is to seek help immediately because mold can grow if left untreated for too long, worsening the symptoms if you wait too long. This is why we recommend acting as quickly as possible if you are concerned that your house has been damaged by water.

Why Should You Act Quickly When There Is a Problem?

It is important to act quickly to prevent mold from growing as soon as possible after water damage has occurred, which can happen for a number of reasons:

  • There is a greater amount of debris causing more damage.
  • There is mold growing on your property, which can lead to the growth of harmful bacteria on your property.
  • The sewage might be spilling from the pipe if the pipe is broken or cracked.
  • Overflowing toilets, broken supply lines for the ice maker and fridge.

A way to know if there is water damage in your home is if you see wet walls or if you smell mold when you walk through your home. As part of our response, we bring in our thermal image readers and moisture meters to ensure we can identify the extent of the damage immediately. With the help of these tools, we will be able to determine just how extensive the water damage is and what level of care we need to approach your property with. It doesn't matter if it's just one small area of your house that has been damaged or if it's a much larger one. The best thing that you can do is give us a call as soon as possible so that we can come to assess the problem and provide a solution.
