Water damage can affect any home or business in a surprising number of ways. Flooding, storm damage, and water damage from either broken pipes or excess moisture can all cause issues in their own way and their own time. Understanding the risks of water damage can better prepare you for the potential consequences, as well as help you avoid future water damage issues before they become a problem.
Identifying the source of the water damage is essential to mitigating both the short and long-term effects of water damage. Water entering from a gap in roofing or a broken window is different from water that has infiltrated into a basement or out of a pipe. There are substantial risks to interior walls, structural elements, carpeting, furnishings, and other parts of the home, especially if the water infiltration is not found and stopped immediately. Depending on the severity of the water damage, furnishings and interior surfaces may need complete replacement.
A longer-term and less visible water damage risk comes from highly damp conditions over a longer term, allowing for the growth and spread of mold. In addition to the spores and mycotoxins given off by mold as it grows, mold can over time infiltrate and damage any cellulose-bearing materials, including sheetrock and wood. Identification of these longer-term water damage issues is generally more difficult and often requires a specially trained technician to ameliorate or remediate such water damage.
