Summertime Water Damage Risks

While winter brings frozen pipes and ice dams, summer has its own water damage issues. From rain storms and backed up sewers to malfunctioning air conditioners and swimming pool mishaps, summer is not immune to the headache of water damage. The best advice when it comes to water damage – regardless of the season – is to deal with it right away. Standing water is detrimental to your health as well as your property.

Mold

Mold can cause serious health issues if not dealt with quickly and properly. Mold growth begins about 48-72 hours after water makes an area a prime place for it to reproduce.

Bacteria/Parasites

Floodwaters contain dangerous bacteria and parasites that can be also be harmful to your health. Anything that comes into contact with floodwaters should be professionally cleaned or discarded.

Structural Damage

Water can cause serious structural damage to your home or property. Even something as simple as a hose left dripping for weeks can cause major damage to an already weakened foundation.

To avoid these problems, take care of water damage as it arises and be vigilant about making sure water isn’t present where it shouldn’t be – that hoses are turned off completely, air conditioners are working properly, gutters are flowing correctly, and sewers aren’t blocked by debris. The more proactive you are, the less likely you are to experience water damage, but, most importantly, take care of it right away when it does happen.

The team that was sent to our house was wonderful. Their experience and professionalism in our situation was outstanding. I was concerned about our children and they took every precaution (air purifier, microbial spray) to keep them safe. Not only did they have good work ethics, they were personable and caring as well.
