Flash floods, broken pipes, and roof leaks can all lead to unexpected water damage in your home. There is a distinction between “Flood Damage” and “Water Damage”. Flood waters enter the structure from outside, while water damage occurs from water entering your property from within the structure.
When a fire occurs in your home or business the emotional toll can sometimes be greater than the physical toll. Once the fire department has extinguished the fire, the water from the fire department needs to be removed quickly to avoid additional damage.
The fire has been extinguished, so you are out of the clear right? Wrong! Smoke damages from fires continue after the fire has settled unless emergency services step in immediately.
Molds will grow anywhere that 3 things are found: moisture, oxygen, and an organic food source.
