Avoid Water Removal Delays with Professional Help

If you are a property owner who takes pride in maintaining your home or commercial space yourself, you do well to reconsider the DIY approach and ask for some expert help when faced with significant water damage. Restoration in Norcross proceeds much more quickly, smoothly, and completely when trained and certified technicians from a reputable and local firm like AdvantaClean of Norcross and Buford are on the job within minutes to just a few hours after a water damage event.

How Fast Does Water Damage Property?

There is a tendency to hope that "just water" will do little to harm your property's structures or the contents within. Unfortunately, water is an incredibly corrosive substance. If skeptical, consider the canyons created by the world's streams and rivers. Now consider that nearly all common construction materials are wood or processed wood-based (cellulose) or processed metals, much more vulnerable to a thorough soaking than a mountainside. The following types of building materials can survive employing professional water damage restoration, but trained technicians must implement best-practice interventions rapidly, preferably within the first 24 hours:

  • Laminate flooring materials will fail faster than almost any other component; frankly, a 24-hour wait might be too long

  • Drywall, which can swell, warp, and crumble if not dried out fast

  • Insulation, which packs down and loses its ability to protect from temperature extremes (decreased R-value) when soaked

  • Wood framing, joists, subfloors, baseboards, trim, and hardwood strip or plank flooring hold out longer than engineered wood products but are porous and need attention as soon as possible

  • Metal supports and fasteners (nails, screws, staples, bolts) which tarnish (rust) upon contact with water, threatening structural integrity

Please keep in mind that all organic surfaces can become incubators for mold growth and damage if water removal and drying begin later than 24 to 48 hours after the water damage.

Speed is critical when you face the harm moisture inflicts on building materials and contents on your home or business property. Structures, fixtures, furnishings, and personal or commercial equipment and items often emerge from the chaos of a flood or plumbing disaster cleaned, dried, and ready to perform after professional water damage restoration. When AdvantaClean of Norcross and Buford partners with you early in the recovery process, outcomes are favorable. Waiting even a few hours or days to obtain help risks progressive deterioration, secondary damage such as mold growth, the loss of structural integrity and destruction, and the need to replace expensive contents.
