Why is water damage a big deal?

There are a variety of safety and health problems that can arise from a flooded house or basement. Floodwaters from both natural disasters and plumbing problems contain large amounts of bacteria and other cultures that are hazardous to humans and can cause a variety of illnesses and health complications. If left long enough, the cultures in the floodwater can promote the growth of mold, which more times than not is toxic to any inhabitants of the flooded house.

 

Water damage also causes more tangible and immediate consequences such as damage to the property and furniture within the home or business. If you believe that there is structural damage done to your home, shut off your utilities immediately and call an expert like 1-800-Wet-Carpet in McLean to help make your home safe and bring it back to normal.
