Water Damage in Your Home: What to Know


Water damage is a serious issue. The term water damage describes a range of situations where your property or home is damaged by water. This water can come from inside of your home or outside of your home. Anything from a burst pipe, to a broken water heater, to an extreme weather storm can cause water to enter your home.

React Quickly

In cases of water damage, a quick reaction is crucial. Water can cause a lot of damage in a short amount of time. It is important to call a restoration company, such as AAA Restoration, as soon as you discover a water event in your home so that we can help take the necessary steps to clean up your home.

Waiting to have the water addressed in your home can cause additional problems. Moisture that stays around even after the major water source is cleaned up can allow mold to grow in your home. Mold can be difficult to deal with and can cause various health issues. After a water event in your home, if not addressed correctly, mold can grow in as little as 2 days!

Look for Clues

In some cases, water damage may not be clearly visible. You may have an unpleasant odor in a room of your house. You can also have a small area of discoloration that may be coming from a slow leaking pipe that you are unaware of. Some indicators that you have a water damage can include; Soft walls or floors, damp smells, condensation on walls or ceilings, sounds of dripping water, peeling paint and much more.

Water Damage Will Worsen with Time

Water is very damaging to items that you have in your home, such as wood, paper materials, electronics and more. Removing water from these surfaces in a quick, efficient manner can reduce the damage to those items without them becoming unsalvageable. If items are left in standing water, they will continue to deteriorate and mold can begin to grow. If you have a water damage in your home, call a restoration expert like AAA Restoration to come and help. We can dry out your home and materials in a timely manner to help reduce the loss of your items.
