Water Damage: Secondary problems

10/10/2019 (Permalink)

mold growth on walls Secondary damage, like mold growth, can occur if your water damaged home is not dried out correctly.

If you experience water damage from a busted pipe or AC leak then you most likely focused on the obvious problem, the water. What many home owners miss is the secondary damage that occurs, like mold or weakened structural materials.

If you fail to get the structure dry fast enough you may begin to notice discoloration from high moisture levels. This discoloration, many times, is mold growth. Mold growth can get out of control and potentially put you in a tough situation with your insurance company. Also, some of the building materials, like studs and base plates, can begin to rot in addition to developing mold growth. 

SERVPRO of Alexandria understands this and will begin drying your home or business immediately in order to counteract these issues.
