Avoid the High Cost of Water Damage
The Insurance Journal recently reported that aside from weather events, burst and leaking pipes are the most common causes of water damage. And unfortunately, water damage is also the second-most expensive type of repair, right behind fire damage.
When you’re dealing with the aftermath of a water emergency, SERVPRO can help prevent further damage that can lead to costly repairs and health threats.
SERVPRO Can Mitigate the Damage
A leak, overflowing bathtub, sink, or clogged toilet might seem more like an inconvenience rather than a dangerous threat. But water can do a lot of damage, especially when it’s the result of a long-time plumbing problem. Prolonged contact with water, even small amounts at a time, has a serious impact on floors, carpets, walls, and furniture.
Water damage can lead to:
- Fire and electrocution, when water comes in contact with electrical sources
- Mold and mildew, even on hard surfaces like masonry
- Rotted wood that may compromise a building's structural integrity
- Spread of bacteria and pathogens from contaminated sources such as sewers
- Odors from mold, mildew, and bacteria
All of these issues are more costly to repair or remove than simply fixing leaks and persistent overflowing. To prevent mold, rot, and other problems from developing, water damage, of any degree, should be addressed within the first 24 to 48 hours.
The team at SERVPRO of Aberdeen/Holmdel is always ready to assist, regardless of the size of the water spill. Whether you need a simple inspection or complete demolition service, we have the expertise and knowledge to prevent further damage.
