What is water damage?

“Water damage is any water that causes the usefulness or future use or value of any property to become impaired by water.” –TM Restoration Schools, Inc.

Water damage affects the structure and contents of buildings and even more relevant is the fact that it also impacts public health if restoration techniques are not performed in the correct manner.  There are many ways in which we can be impacted by said damage, from a big storm where a tree breaks open the roof of your home to a small leak in the bathroom that you haven’t paid attention to or even seen.

What happens when this damage is not treated as soon as possible? If the water damage is treated immediately, there is less demolition. We will do everything we can to save your home and contents and we have the knowledge and will to do it. Your belongings can be destroyed along with your home if not treated in a timely manner. The water can cause irreversible damage to the structure of the building along with your health. Mold and mildew grow with time when there is moisture and it is not dried or treated properly. There have been cases where the damage was not treated until it was too late. Homes have been lost completely. In these situations one can understand how time can be essential, which is why AFTERDISASTER has a 24/7 hotline and our certified technicians arrive on site to an emergency in less than an hour.
