What Is Water Damage?Posted on Feb 06th, 2015
Water damage can come from several different sources within your home, office, commercial building, store, etc. Plumbing failures are the most likely culprit, however storms and rising flood waters are also the most common source. Storm floods are becoming more and more normal to occur in Toronto and surrounding areas, and it is important to note that when they do happen, the effects on your property can be devastating.
The damage to personal property is one of the many aspects of water damage, and one of the most emotional of all the losses. Furniture, carpet, clothing and major appliances are all commonly affected. Any wood pieces, such as dressers, bed sets, frames that have been immersed or even exposed to dripping water can swell, rot and lead to mildew growth – this now takes your water damage to a whole new level. Depending on the quality of each item and your desire to spend time and money restoring each piece, the owner will now have a decision of whether or not to go ahead and discard or save.
Water damage can leave a home or business devastated. When dealing with something as valuable and precious as your home and personals, it is important to call professionals immediately to assist in the renovation process.
