Why Water Damage Needs Timely Intervention
Any water, fire or storm should address damage to your home as soon as possible. But water damage spreads readily spreads throughout your home in ways that worse the damage. The process can start to become worse within just a few hours.
Here’s a closer look at what happens when water damage starts to spread through your home:
Within hours, the first signs of mold damage can start to appear in your home. That means your home may need extra remediation services if this issue is missed and addressed quickly. Mold damage is usually first noticeable due to smell—homeowners dealing with mold report noticing musty odors as one of the first things they notice.
Days after the water starts to move through your home, you will notice signs of damage to the drywall and wood in your home. You may see wood surfaces warping and changing shape. The drywall in your home may become damp and stained. The walls and windows can start to warp, too.
As more time passes, the damage will continue to grow worse and compromise your home’s walls, flooring, doors and windows. The longer the damage continues, the more serious it will become. That means it will continue to deteriorate the home until costly repairs are inevitable.
So if you call for water damage restoration help early, you can avoid this serious progression!
