Water Damage Comes in Many Forms
One of the first situations of water touching any surface, is damage. When water is left on a surface of any sort, it begins to cause this destruction. For furniture, it seeps into the inner padding and starts to penetrate every pore. When it gets on wood, it starts to break down the outer coating, even with the thickest of protection, and when left on a floor at the top level of a house or building, it tears out the floor and can drop the upstairs into the downstairs quickly.
At SERVPRO of Southern Butler County, we know where to look when your home has been impacted by water standing too long, or simply touching things that water should not touch. The hidden damage of water may not show up until mold shows up, and by then we are talking about a new set of techniques for removing the mold. Because we want your valuables and your home to be protected, it is important that you call us as soon as you see the presence of water, so our highly trained team can come help protect your things.
Water damage occurs for many reasons ranging from broken pipes, to natural disasters. When any of these things happens, you certainly are at risk for loss. Here are three things to look for to create a situation of restoration, not replacement.
Presence of water on the walls or floor – if you see condensation on your walls, you probably are going to see water damage. Condensation can come from moisture under the foundation, and from a variety of other places.
Water seeping in doors during a storm – If you see moisture gathered around your door frame just after a rain, you may have a slight space in between the door molding and the edge. Check to see if you should replace the rubber sealer.
Brown Blotches on your Ceiling – This is the time to really get someone to come look at your roof and attic. Sadly, so many homes are totally destroyed by a leak in even a single shingle.
