When not done properly, water damage repair in your Blue Springs home can actually have negative effects. Water damage repair is more than just drying up water. It requires proper equipment, training, and a quick response to ensure the best outcome. Here are just a few reasons why you should not overlook water damage and be sure that you call the professionals at Kade Cleaning Systems for water damage repair.
If the source of the water is unknown, or if the water has been sitting for an extended amount of time, many harmful contaminants could be lurking in the water. Water from outside sources (rivers, streams, septic lines, etc.) is considered contaminated and can be dangerous to your health. Biohazards in grossly contaminated water can cause serious health symptoms upon contact or if ingested. Water in your home may have come in contact with household chemicals, which also adds to the level of contamination. To keep yourself and your family safe and protected, let trained professionals with the correct protective equipment and cleaning techniques handle water damage cleanup in your home.
In as little as 48 hours following any type of water damage, mold growth begins. As long as moisture is present, mold growth will continue and even spread. Because mold reproduces through microscopic spores, it can spread through the air to other areas of the home. Mold exposure causes a lot of respiratory symptoms, such as coughing, sneezing, watery eyes, itchy throat, headaches, and dizziness. Mold can have more serious effects on those who have allergies, asthma, respiratory diseases, or weakened immune systems. Lingering water damage and inadequate drying will greatly contribute to mold growth, and without a quick response and proper water damage cleanup equipment, you leave your home at major risk for mold. Professional water damage repair and restoration technicians not only have the proper equipment to thoroughly and completely dry the area, but many also provide 24-hour water damage response so that repair can begin right away before mold has a chance to take over.
As soon as water damage is discovered, all power to the affected area should be turned off. Water easily damages wiring throughout your home, and water and electricity do not mix. Water damage can cause blown circuits, damaged electrical appliances, and even fires and electrocution. Professional water damage repair and restoration companies know the dangers and risks associated with water damage and electrical problems, and have the training and experience to handle the problem safely.
