It certainly can be. Unfortunately, whether a big flood or a small leak, the consequences of water damage can be devastating.
Most materials in the home absorb water quickly and are structurally damaged by it. Water quickly ruins furniture, floorboards, carpet, cabinetry, doors, skirtings, and even plaster walls. Identifying, containing, and drying escaped water are essential to protecting your home and contents.
Whether it’s from a roof leak, a burst wall pipe, or a bathroom backup, escaped water often transports microbes and chemicals which can be hazardous to the health of you and your family. Even if it seems fresh and dry, restoration-grade cleaning and sanitisation are essential to preventing health risks.
Mould grows in damp, dark environments, precisely the kind of environment water leaks create. It is very common for the slow or ineffective drying of a water leak to start mould growth that only spreads over time. Therefore it is essential to nip the problem in the bud by quickly and thoroughly dealing with any escaped water.
