Water is one of the leading causes of property loss in a home or business. The insurance industry estimates that 14,000 Americans will suffer water damage at work or home each day. 37% of homeowners are likely to experience some form of water damage.
Water damage is a risk for any business or home owner. Water damage can occur from floods, spills and leaks. This may require costly restoration.
Water can warp and destroy woods, ruin textiles, or cause electrical shorts. Most alarming is the possibility that water damage can lead to increased fire hazards, mold, and microbe growth if it is not addressed and properly dried.
These early signs are paint peeling, bubbling on walls and ceilings. The affected areas may become puffy or swollen over time and even begin to warp. If the problem goes unnoticed long enough, walls and ceilings can feel soft to the touch.
Each flooring material has a different reaction to water. Carpet that has been damaged by water will react differently to water. For instance, carpets can feel soggy or wet. One home had constant water leaks and the carpet was covered in mushrooms.
Ceramic tile that has suffered water damage can often show signs of mold, and grout cracks. Vinyl and Linoleum tiles will crack and peel if they’re left to dry, while laminate and wood floors can warp, buckle, and cup when wet.
