Water damage can be caused by many internal and external factors, with the most common causes including overflow or leakage from washing machines, stormwater flooding, sink overflows, plumbing faults and roof leakages. If this flood and water damage isn’t treated by a professional promptly, there can be serious consequences to your home or business, including:
Water can migrate to areas not originally affected, spreading into adjoining rooms and penetrating existing materials. It is recommended that you evaluate all affected areas of your property, not just areas with visible saturation.
Saturated materials swell as they absorb moisture. To reduce the chances of permanent damage, it’s important to dry and restore your items as soon as possible.
As water evaporates, it creates high humidity, which can damage some porous materials. It is best to reduce the indoor humidity (dehumidify) quickly to prevent this damage.
After water intrusion, mould and bacterial spores can germinate and multiply very quickly. Mould only needs 3 things to thrive: moisture, humidity and a lack of ventilation.
Once mould begins to grow, microscopic spores are released into the air and can be inhaled by people and pets. This exposure can be dangerous and lead to health problems, especially for allergy sufferers. Breathing in mould can cause nasal congestion, allergic reactions, throat irritation, sneezing and even serious fungal infections.
There are 3 steps you can take when flooding occurs to prevent hazards and keep water damage to a minimum. These steps are as follows:
Water and electricity should never be mixed, so the first thing you need to do is turn off your electricity at the mains to ensure the safety of yourself and other occupants. This minimises the risk of electric shock, which can lead to serious injury and even death.
After you’ve made the area safe, the next thing to do is to call our team. We’re available 24/7 to provide prompt assistance, giving your carpets the best chance of being successfully restored. The sooner you call us, the sooner we can be there to prevent permanent damage and save you money on costly replacements. While you’re waiting for our team to arrive, you should attempt to remove as much excess water as you can with buckets and mops.
It’s important to identify and locate the cause of the flooding. Flooding can be caused by everything from an overflowing sink to a burst water pipe. If your flooding is caused by a plumbing issue that’s out of your control like a burst pipe or a leaking tap, it’s recommended that you contact a plumber as soon as possible to remedy the problem.
