Is it damaged or just affected? This is one of the most common challenges a water restoration professional faces today. Many water damage restoration pros have arrived at a loss only to find themselves being told by a customer that “They want new carpet”! or “The walls all need to be replaced”, and so on sand so forth. “Just because something has become wet does not necessarily mean it needs to be replaced” because it has become damaged. If you are lucky and tend to it immediately you might be able to have the damages repaired instead of having to replace completely.
Left untreated, ongoing damages may occur due to continued absorption of humidity into items that previously were just affected by water.
If water evaporates too quickly into warm interior air without a corresponding reduction in humidity, this often may result in an increased potential for damages to occur to materials. Your most likely to have this occur when the humidity levels are above 60%.
Time and reduction of humidity are of great importance and are key factors in whether or not you cause any secondary damages to occur. It is important to respond quickly and try and reduce the humidity levels in the area down below 40% within the first 24 hours. Establishing these drying goals and determining dry standards for affected materials is the most reliable way to prevent secondary damage along with knowing you have successfully returned the structure and its contents to an acceptable condition.
Water Cleanup DID YOU KNOW?…
Water cleanup challenges can come into your life in many unfortunate ways: heavy rain, a hurricane or tornado, flooding, broken water pipes or a sewer overflow or backup.
However, if your home or business is subjected to water, it is not only a big headache. It can also lead to major property damage and, if left untreated, can lead to mold growth.
Water on your property will not only damage your property, but it will also create a perfect environment for mold to grow and spread. Mold can be toxic to anyone that comes in contact with it and can lead to short and long term health problems.
