Our Technicians Can Help After a Flood Has Caused Significant Damage
Don't Let These Effects Of Flood Damage In Carson City Happen To Your Home
Some of the most severe effects of flood damage in Carson City only show themselves hours or days after the disaster happens, and only if no action is taken in that time to prevent additional damage from happening.
Companies like SERVPRO exist to provide 24/7 protection against floods in Carson City by responding quickly to your home and removing water before anything worse can happen. However, without a professional mitigation crew helping out, the problems can add up quickly. Here are some of the things that can happen to your home without a fast response.
Hours After the Incident - Water Seeps In
When water first enters the area, its effects are often only at the surface level. However, with more time, moisture can seep deeper into the wood, concrete, tile, and other common home materials. The deeper water reaches, the longer we must spend drying the area out and the more resources we have to invest just in getting the place dry again. Every minute counts after a disaster, so be sure to call SERVPRO without delay!
Days After the Incident - Severe Effects
When standing water and excess moisture remain in the environment for several days without intervention, they begin to cause more severe effects in the home. Wood boards can bend and warp, metals can start to oxidize, and some types of carpeting may become impossible to save. Mold can also become a significant problem at this time. Even if damage has progressed to this stage, you should try to call us in as soon as possible so that our experts can stop these issues from becoming permanent.
One Week or More - Permanent Damage
Once roughly a week has passed without thorough drying solutions, permanent damages start to drastically increase the restoration and repair costs associated with the incident. Concrete can crack and fragment, woods can become heavily deteriorated, and mold growth may be so extensive as to pose significant health effects. We can help to remove water and restore damages even well past this stage, but the problems may be much harder for us to deal with than if we had responded earlier.
