There is nothing worse than discovering a burst pipe or flooding in the home due to a storm. These events can cause some serious water damage to the house. Even smaller issues such as a leaky pipe can lead to severe damage down the road. With any of these issues, it is important to call a professional cleaning service to come inspect and clean the home. Water damage can cause different damages to the house. Here are a couple of these damages.

Black Mold or Mildew

Mold is an extremely dangerous result of water damage. It can occur hidden within the walls and floors. Mold can be very harmful to the health of residents. In the case of a mold infestation, residents have to evacuate their home until the mold has been remediated.  Mold is a biohazard, and homeowners can sometimes be living with it without even knowing.

All Brite Professional Cleaning Services goes through an extensive mold detection process to ensure safety. All Brite uses moisture meters and infrared cameras to seek out mold. If mold is found, contaminated items need to be torn out and removed. All Brite will bring in equipment such as industrial fans and dehumidifiers to help remove any existing moisture from the air. After that, All Brite will treat the damaged areas with antimicrobial products to fully abolish the mold. All Brite takes mold damage very seriously, which is important as it can cause harmful illnesses to homeowners.

Damage to the Home

Pipe bursts, flooding, and leaky pipes can lead to numerous issues in the house.  Areas such as carpet, drywall, hardwood floors, basements, and attics can be affected by water damage. In the case of a flood or pipe burst, the damage will be very obvious. In addition, a leaky pipe can cause hidden damage. The drywall could be sustaining damage without the homeowner’s knowledge. This is why it is so critical to get a professional cleaning service to come in and assess the damage. With water damage, there can be more than meets the eye, and it is important to get the house inspected for mold.

Water damage is a very stressful situation for homeowners. Whether this water comes from a flood or from a leaky pipe, extensive damage can occur. Evaluating the area of mold or mildew is a very important first step to take as it can lead to severe health problems.
