How To Prevent Secondary Water Damage
When you suffer water damage at either your home or business, there are so many thoughts that go through your head. Often, those thoughts are centered around the visible effects that the water is having on your property. Rightfully so, these are valid concerns. Saving furniture, flooring, and personal items is very important, both financially and sentimentally.
But there are also invisible effects that can wreak havoc on your property, causing problems immediately, as well as weeks or months down the road. Common secondary damage can take the forms of mold or weakening of structures inside the framework of the structure. If the remediation response is not quick enough, moisture can cause mold spores to grow. Drywall and wood, if exposed to enough moisture can also become compromised after some time.
