Flood Cleanup – Water Damage Restoration Services Maryland
Water damage can come from a number of different problems or sources. Certainly, hurricanes and severe rain storms, but also simply living in an area where minor rainfall can cause a flood (living in a flood zone), or just a plumbing problem or a toilet that overflows can cause water damage. How much damage each can cause depends on many factors. In the case of a plumbing problem, much depends on how quickly the problem is discovered and where it is.
Let’s for a moment look at a plumbing leak at a toilet valve. Bathrooms tend to be environments where moisture at times is a “given.” After all, a hot shower will make your bathroom steamy, and that can create moisture on the walls, floors and fixtures (i.e. sink and toilet). Now, some people will wipe away all the moisture after a shower, but let’s face it, if you have a family, that can be a lot of work. Besides, bathrooms are designed to withstand that kind of moisture, and regular cleaning will prevent most mold issues. However, since most of us aren’t mopping our bathroom floor after each shower, and when we do mop, we are, by the very nature of mopping, adding water to the floor, a leaky valve near the toilet could easily go undetected until there is a major problem. So then one day, you go to the bathroom and the floor seems to collapse a bit under the toilet. Now you have a serious problem. Whereas in the beginning, you could have simply called a plumber and had the valve replaced, now, you have to replace the valve, the flooring, subflooring and very possibly the supports under the floor and the lower half of the dry wall!
People with summer homes can have big problems as well. If you don’t properly winterize your summer getaway, during the winter, a pipe could burst and you won’t even know about it until you go to open the home up for the summer months. Now you have a situation where that water has potentially had months to cause damage, a very likely part of which is mold. Imagine your disappointment going to open your summer home, walking in and having your feet squish on the carpet and then smelling and seeing the mold that result from everything being wet for so long.
FROZEN OR BROKEN PIPE DISASTERS – SEWER BACKUPS – STORM DAMAGE – BASEMENT FLOODING
