Water leaks and floods can have lasting damaging effects to your home or business which can lead to further problems such as mould and damp, odour and rotting in the future. A rapid response following the incident is critical to minimise any of these further issues and to get you back on your feet as soon as possible. It is important to know the necessary steps so you can be prepared for any future water damage issues.
Water damage can present itself in a number of ways - burst or damaged pipes, heavy rainfall, sewage floods, drainage overflow etc. This can damage the buildings and contents alike. However, water damage can be unexpected and hard to anticipate.
It is important to treat water damage promptly to reduce the chances of further damage and hinder contamination spreading which can cause health effects if left for too long. Without drying or sanitising, bacteria spores are released into the air and can lead to the formation of mould. Mould thrives in damp and dark areas. It spreads quickly, destroying the area around it often leading it to rot or disintegrate. The longer the water is not dealt with, the more harm it can cause to your health and the building’s structure.
Having a clear course of action is essential to a prompt response. We abide by these stages of clearing up damage:
