Water damage can occur from flooding due to severe weather. It can be the result of water used to extinguish a fire in the home. It could also result from a burst pipe. Often this water gathers in places out of sight, where it can damage wood and infrastructure. With excess moisture comes the risk of harmful molds, which may be difficult to detect until you or your family start developing allergic reactions or respiratory problems. Odors can develop in your business from water that is collecting underneath carpeting. When a home or business has sustained water damage, it needs the assistance of water damage restoration professionals.
ServiceMaster Cleaning and Restoration Service in Cleveland, OH acts fast to limit the damage caused by standing water. We eliminate the possible health risks that this can pose to you and your family. We can get your business up and running again after a natural disaster. We provide an initial assessment of the situation and then get to work removing water. We conduct anti-microbial applications and begin the drying process with air movement and dehumidification.
After excess water has accumulated, the damage starts within minutes. Stains begin to form and wood floors and furniture begin to show discoloration. Wallpaper begins to swell. The longer the water sits, the more damage is done. After a few hours, drywall will begin to soak up moisture. Furniture swells and warps and odors develop. After a day, mold and gray water forms. Gray water quickly turns to black water and the health risks increase.
When your home has experienced excessive water damage, we work to remove the water and potential for mold growth. Basement carpeting needs to be thoroughly dry-cleaned. With cold weather comes an increased risk of bursting pipes, and a burst pipe can cause unseen damage.
