Water Damage in One Room Can Mean Other Rooms Too
Whether water results from a bathroom overflow, ruptured pipe, dishwasher, or washing machine malfunction, a small amount of water can become a big problem if it is not handled correctly. Although the water is seen in only one room, other rooms may be at risk for water and moisture damage. In addition to the affected surrounding rooms as well as the property structure, water damage could affect the value of the property. Many times property owners are unaware of the essential knowledge and expertise that is required for safe and proper clean-up and will attempt to clean up which may potentially cause further damage.
Often, property owners are unequipped to properly handle water damage situations. While a shop vac, mop, and towel may appear to remove visible surface water, excess water and moisture can seep deep into cracks and crevices traveling down to the lowest level of the property. Hidden water and moisture can cause extensive secondary damages that can lead to long-term or delayed problems and decrease property value.
