The Importance of Immediate Response to a Water Damage
When water gets out of control in a home or business, its effect can range from a simple nuisance to downright disastrous!
Typically, when you have an uncontrolled water release, it follows the path of least resistance, spreading across surfaces as it travels. Gravity acts upon it as well and, when it finds a low spot or a path to areas lower than the source area, it follows that path downward. Depending on their porosity, many materials soak up the water.
Within minutes or hours, water absorption results in discoloration, swelling, adhesive release, delamination, warping and splitting of building materials and contents.
Within a day or two, the effect becomes much worse. But what you don’t see is the damaging effects of evaporating water – you know water vapor in the air. As water evaporates, humidity increases, so does something called “vapor pressure”. Vapor pressure is the force that vapors exert on the surrounding environment.
Damage caused by water flowing from its releasing source is called “primary damage.” The ongoing damage to ceilings, walls and contents caused by moisture in the air and vapor pressure, is called “secondary damage”. It is this secondary damage that increases both the size and cost of the loss with each passing hour.
Rapid response by a trained restoration professional is essential!
