The Dangers of Water

Water’s capability to dissolve or weaken materials creates the growth of microorganisms and mold on others. For this very reason, the E.P.A has determined that water is the single most long term destructive substance in the indoor environment. When a water emergency such as seepage, spillage, flooding or backups occurs- a fast response yields several benefits. The longer any kind of water damage goes untreated, the greater the damage. For example, flooded water inside the home can create colonies of mold growth.

Furthermore, the amount of time sewage backup remains untreated will create greater penetration of harmful bacteria to materials. When selecting a mitigation team in the event of a water emergency, it is imperative to select companies with fast response times in order to prevent future damage.
