Ignoring Water Damage
Handling water damage from its very beginning Is crucial. Ignoring the problem can lead to more serious problems like the creation of mold and mildew. When it comes to water damage and its technicality, there are three types you should be on the lookout for. In the first of these categories, usually when the damage first begins, water is still considered “clean” because it does not pose a threat to anyone inhabiting in the property. The second of these groupings is more crucial because it is used to label water damage that usually occurs when a pipe has broken or there has been an overflowing of a toilet. Water coming from these sources can pose a threat to occupants of the property because it is not clean and often carries microorganisms and/or chemical contaminants; this however is not closely dangerous as the next category. On the last of the categories (the most dangerous of them all) “black water” is created and should be treated immediately. When black water strikes a property, it often carries harmful bacteria and fungi. Black water is known to come from sewages and/or rising water, and as previously stated this it should not be ignored because it is an extreme hazard to those living on the affected property. These can not only become monetary problems, but also hazards that place the health of those in the property at stake.
Other negative effects that come from ignoring the water damage also include, but are not limited to, structural damage and the loss of assets. When water damage is ignored, you risk structural damage to occur if water is left standing for too long. This water, eventually, will soak into everything around it and cause damages that can cost thousands of dollars to repair. Water can damage and put at risk structural cohesion, especially in older wooden homes. In a wooden structure, for example, water can not only rot the wood but also allow the infestation of insects. In properties of steel, standing water can cause oxidation and rust, disrupting connection areas used for stability of the property.
The structure of your home is not the only thing in danger from standing water. Think of all the personal belongings that are at stake in a flooded property. From furniture to family photos to important documents; anything with value to you must be saved and protected. At DRS, we do not only extract water from a flooded property but also care for all your most personal and cherished assets. Our work ethic will minimize your restorative costs and reduce the chance of developing a mold problem- something DRS also specializes in. To reduce potential problems in the affected area of your property, keep in mind that personal belongings have a great chance of surviving flood damage only if they are treated IMMEDIATELY.
Electrical components in your property should also be a priority and must also be treated immediately and accordingly if they have been in any contact with water. This reduces potential dangerous electrical short circuiting. Think of the dangers this can pose to everyone in the property.
Our promise to you is that we have it all under control.
