Water Damage Timeline

2/16/2018 (Permalink)

With the recent influx of rain we have received in the area, make sure you are checking your basement for water and that your sump pump is operating efficiently. The longer the water sits, the more damage that is caused. 

  • Within minutes water into walls, floors, upholstery, and belongings. 
  • In 1-2 hours drywall swells, metal surfaces tarnish, and furniture begins to warp/mold. 
  • 48 hours - 1 week mold grows; doors and furniture warp; and metal begins to rust. 
  • Over 1 week structural safety, mold growth, and bio-hazard contaminants pose serious risks. 

Don't wait until the damage is far worse than it was in the beginning! Call Now!
