Hidden Effects and Restoration Success Stories 

Water damage can occur silently and often goes unnoticed until the consequences become severe. In Kennesaw, where weather can be unpredictable, it's crucial to understand the potential hidden effects of water damage and the importance of professional intervention. 

Hidden Effects of Water Damage 

Water damage isn't always as straightforward as a puddle in the basement or a leaky roof. Some concerns to remember: 

  • Structural Weakening: Water can seep into the foundations and walls, compromising a building's structural integrity. Over time, this might lead to extensive damage that is visible once it's too late. 

  • Mold Growth: One of the most common hidden problems is mold growing behind walls and in other concealed spaces. Mold thrives in damp and dark environments, beginning to colonize within 24 to 48 hours after exposure to moisture. 

A Story of Restoration 

In Kennesaw, a family recently faced a daunting challenge when their home suffered extensive water damage due to a severe storm. The water had infiltrated through roof damages, saturating the attic insulation and seeping into the internal walls. Here's how AdvantaClean of Marietta successfully restored their home: 

  • Initial Assessment: We conducted a thorough assessment using advanced moisture detection equipment to identify all areas affected by water damage. 

  • Water Extraction and Drying: We quickly removed the standing water and used high-efficiency dehumidifiers-LGR-and air movers to dry out the premises. 

  • Mold Remediation: After drying, we treated all affected areas to prevent mold growth and ensure the health and safety of the household. 

  • Structural Restoration: The structural integrity was restored by addressing compromised materials and reinforcing the home's foundation and load-bearing walls. 

  • Final Inspection: A comprehensive inspection was performed to ensure no hidden water damage remained and that the home was safe for the family to return.
