Damaged wooden floors due to water from storm damage.

If your home or business suffers damage from a disaster, time is of the essence to begin the cleanup and restoration process. When it is your home or livelihood on the line, you don’t want to wait, nor should you have to wait, for that help—you need it right away.

We understand just how important a fast response is, which is why responding faster to any size disaster is more than just a slogan to us.

Why a Fast Response Matters

When you have your belongings or business on the line, one luxury you do not have is time when it comes to disaster cleanup. In fact, time can work against you when water damage is involved, which can happen through events like flooding, appliance and/or plumbing failures, storm damage and water used to extinguish fires.

The walls, floors, upholstery and your belongings fall victim to the water as it only takes mere minutes for water to spread throughout your property, where it will saturate everything in its path.

The effects of water damage within the first 24 hours include:

  • Drywall beginning to swell and break down
  • Metal surfaces beginning to tarnish
  • Furniture beginning to swell and crack
  • Dyes and inks from cloth and paper items spreading and staining
  • The beginning of a musty odor

The damage continues to worsen as time goes on. Between 48 hours and a week later, you could begin to see:

  • The growth and spreading of mold and mildew
  • Swelling and warping of doors, windows and studs
  • Metal beginning to rust and corrode
  • Paint beginning to blister
  • Wood flooring swelling and warping
  • The possibilities of serious biohazard contamination

You will find that if you wait longer than a week, water damage that is left unchecked will lead to a longer restoration time and higher costs, as well as impact the structural safety of the building.
