Water damage is an emergency and many times, one of the most destructive that adversely affects property. Any home or business that has endured water damage, desperately needs professional water restoration service immediately. Time is truly of essence, the more expeditious the removal and drying process, the less the damage and the faster your property can return to pre-loss condition.
Water damage in your home or place of business should always be dealt with promptly and efficiently. Left untreated, water causes serious additional damage to your property and provides a fertile breeding ground for mold and other toxins. Mold and toxins begin to grow upon delays in water extraction and with improper drying. In order to prevent mold growth, the drying process should start no later than 48 hours after the flood began and a typical clean-water flood takes three to five days to completely dry the structure.
Should such a disaster occur and the intervention of your Insurance Company is required, an additional factor should be considered. Always be sure that the contractor has your best interest in mind. This can be accomplished by you selecting the contractor rather than merely accepting one selected by the Insurance Company, whose loyalty may be vested with the Insurance Company rather than the homeowner.
