Water Extraction and Removal

Water damage can pose a very serious threat to your home or office. Whether the problem is a leaky roof, burst pipe, or a flooded basement, it is important to address the issue as soon as possible to prevent the secondary damage that water can cause.

There are plenty of ways that water damage can harm your structure, and not all of them are obvious. The materials used in building are hygroscopic and absorb surprising amounts of water. Even small leaks that look less serious at first will eventually result in irreparable swelling, warping and buckling of your structure.

As standing water becomes absorbed by the different components of your home or office, you’ll notice your furniture and upholstery becoming soggy and moldy. Your cabinetry and other wooden structures begin to bloat and warp causing your drywall or plaster to crumble or crack. When it comes to water damage, it is critical that you act fast so the problem can be taken care of as cost effective as possible.

Water damage alone can ruin furniture, cabinets, walls, floorboards and more, but that is not where the problem ends. When this damage is not treated immediately it leads to moist, humid conditions where mold thrives. Mold contamination isn’t always visible and can sometimes grow for weeks or months before being detected. Mold growth in your home isn’t just unsightly; it can lead to reduced air quality, contribute to a variety of health issues, and cause your structures construction materials to rot and breakdown. Don’t allow water damage to develop into a much bigger, more expensive problem.
