ServiceMaster Water Damage Restoration in Champion Forest, TX
Serving Champion Forest, TX area since 1992
Water is all around us in many forms which makes it difficult to completely prevent water damage in your home or building.
Excess water can get into your home from flooding, heavy rain, and humidity as well as plumbing leaks, burst pipes, and sewage backups and it is quick to cause structural damage because water and moisture can get absorbed into common building materials such as wood and drywall.
You must call a professional flood cleanup company as soon as you notice the excess water because it can lead to extensive structural damage and mold growth within just 48 hours.
Flood Damage Clean Up
ServiceMaster Restoration & Cleaning provides water and flood damage restoration services in Champion Forest, TX to clean up and restore homes and businesses that have sustained significant water damage.
Our technicians have received the highest level of training and IICRC certification to effectively handle water damage by limiting its spread and drying the affected furnishings and structural elements with dehumidification and extraction equipment.
We will also clean up any resulting damage using our anti-microbial cleaners and sanitizers as well as monitor the moisture level to ensure that the water has been completely removed to help prevent mold or mildew growth.
Damage Caused by Water and Flooding
No matter what level of water damage or flooding has occurred in your home or building, you need to act fast.
Water will quickly spread through porous furnishings and building materials like wood and drywall which means that even a small leak can spread through a property and result in damage and mold growth.
When water gets absorbed by flooring, carpeting, furniture, wood, drywall, insulation, and other porous materials, the affected materials may become warped, stained, rotted, and corroded.
If too much water gets absorbed into structural materials, this can cause major structural damage to the building. The areas and materials affected by water damage are also at a high risk of mold and mildew as these substances are more likely to appear in wet areas.
If your property is flooded, you must consider that the water could be contaminated. Flood water from outside may contain debris and dangerous materials like sewage that could put your health and safety at risk.
You should avoid contact with water that may be contaminated and call our professionals right away for flood damage clean up.
