Water damages can occur for various reasons and can cause a wide array of problems for you and your property. From mold damages to structural problems, water damages can cause severe issues. Below, A&R Environmental will discuss what causes water damages and what you can do to prevent them from occurring.

How Do Water Damages Occur?

Water damages can occur from many different problems. Some of those include:
• Broken or Leaky Pipes
• Storm Damages
• Flooding
• Sewage Backups

If you have any type of water damages to your property, it is crucial that you call a professional cleanup company such as A&R Environmental. Water can seep into areas where you cannot see it. Areas inside of walls, beneath carpets, and in crawlspaces are common for water damages. If you do not have the proper equipment to find water behind surfaces, it will not dry. Once this occurs, you will have mold growth. Mold can cause a host of problems that is not only hazardous to your health but also damages the structure of your home. When handling water damages, the professionals will use pumps to pump all the existing water out, and then fans will be used to dry all areas of the home, including places that cannot be seen. Once all water is removed, water damage restoration can occur. Damaged areas will be removed and replaced. One replaced, the areas will be sprayed with special agents to ensure no mold growth will occur.

Mold growth can spread quickly throughout your property and cause severe respiratory issues. If you see any water or mold stains, you need to call a professional immediately. Mold will continue to grow and breed until it is entirely removed from the property. Mold causes structural damages and can make you ill. To avoid mold growth, call a professional for all your water damage cleanup and removal needs.
