When you have water damage, it must be removed immediately. The longer you leave a broken or leaking pipe or a roof leak, the further water damage will travel. A pipe leak under the sink, behind a wall or in the downstairs bathroom can lead to expensive and extensive corrosion, mold, and rot. Mold will definitely start to cause a problem quickly if you either neglect to remove wet carpeting or address the issue. Moisture has to first be taken out of the affected area completely. That can be done with a dehumidification equipment. You’ll also need to address the odor and remove moisture from the building materials like:
✔ The structure of your home or office
Where does your water damage come from?
Unfortunately, there is not much that can be done to protect a home against water damage. When water damage occurs it is very important to file an insurance claim right away as it can lead to mold and corrosion if it is not taken care of in a timely manner. Water damage is one of the more fairly common damages that homes, especially in Florida, will encounter. One of the most common types of water damage insurance claims comes from a roof leak. Check your roof at least twice yearly for mold, moss, and rot. Also, take note of discoloration on the ceiling inside your home.
