We all put things off until the last minute. It’s part of being human. However, if you have water damage inside your home or property, that’s one thing you shouldn’t put off until later. Water damage does not get better over time. As a matter of fact, it does the opposite. The longer you wait to remove the damage, the worse it will become. Here are just four of the many things that happen when you leave water damage alone.
When mold spores come in contact with moisture, they start growing right away. If you catch the mold quickly, you can kill it at its source without any problems. However, if you leave the mold and moisture to their own devices, they will eventually take over everything. When mold gets bad, it’s tough to clean. Not only can mold removal take hours or even days, it can also cause health problems for you and your family members. If you don’t want mold to become a major problem, then you should get rid of that water damage as soon as possible.
Within just a few hours, water can damage your rugs, curtains, and other soft goods. Water can lift the dyes out of these surfaces, leaving you with terrible discoloration. Then, the water can carry those dyes into other parts of the house, leaving stains. If you have extensive water damage, don’t put it off until the next day. Since even a few hours can make a difference, call a water restoration service immediately. Dry 24 has 24/7 emergency services, so you won’t have to wait.
Water damages wooden surfaces, too. It bends wood out of shape until the wood can’t fit into its frame anymore. In addition, if you have laminate or any sort of coating on your floors, water can strip that coating from the surface.
Water damage isn’t just cosmetic. It can also damage your home’s structure as a whole. Water soaks into surfaces and can rot them from the inside out. Over time, structures become more and more weak. This kind of damage can cause injury if left unchecked. By dealing with the damage as soon as possible, you can avoid some terrible hazards.
