Wet Paneling

Water damage can lead to professionals having to tear out any and all wet materials. This could be paneling, flooring and a number of different household materials that may need to be dried out. While some might be salvageable, once the material has sat in water, it’s likely that the damage on some of it is irreversible.

Carpet Stains from Water Damage

If your home or business has been affected by a water damage, do not leave oriental rugs or other colored rugs on wet wall-to-wall carpet. This can cause staining and discoloration to your carpet as seen here. 

Water Damaged Wood Flooring

Some of the most frantic calls we receive are when someones hardwood floors get wet during a water damage. Even if the water is cleaned up from the surface immediately, the water may have already penetrated the flooring. Water travels under the floor boards which causes them to swell and buckle. It usually takes around 48 hours for signs of visible damage.

Secondary Damages After Water Damage

If the humidity and moisture levels in a water-damaged environment are not promptly returned to normal, mold spores may grow and multiply. If your home or business has recently had water damage, it is important to remove any excess water and dry the structure in a timely manner.
