Why Water Damage Needs To Be Cleaned Immediately
When flooding and other water disasters affect your home and family, you don't want to wait several hours for regular business hours. You need solutions immediately. SERVPRO water damage mitigation professionals offer 24-hour emergency response services. This means that if a pipe bursts on a holiday, technicians are available to respond. If heavy storm damages leave your home exposed to flooding, a fast response could prevent further harm.
You Can't Wait a Single Day
The first hours after your home is affected by water damage, many things begin to happen.
- Furniture swells and breaks down.
- Metal items tarnish and rust.
- Fabric and paper items become stained.
- Mold or mildew takes hold.
- Drywall weakens and swells.
An immediate response puts the progression of damage on hold while a corrective course of action is put into place.
It's Expensive To Delay
Many situations requiring cleaning and restoration must be addressed immediately. This is because water damage takes place within minutes. Within a short 60-second period, walls, floors, and upholstery absorb water. Finishes on tables and chairs begin to bleed. Cherished photographs start to warp and discolor. If you have to wait more than a 24-hour period for professionals to arrive, the damage becomes much harder to address.
If you have to wait just two days for services, mold may begin to spread. Important framing may warp. Metal fixtures begin to corrode. Paint blisters and wood flooring swells. As damage increases, the efforts and cost of restoring your home increase rapidly. In some cases, the structural safety of your home could be affected.
