Immediate professional response to water damage is crucial. Water damage can be caused by ice dams, storm damage, appliance failures, plumbing leaks, sump pump failures, flooding, and more. Addressing the problem within the first 48 hours can reduce damage resulting in lower costs in mitigation and repairs. Often overlooked is the increased level of humidity in the home which can cause additional damage to your structure and contents in areas of your home not directly affected by water. Mold is another concern during and after water intrusion occurs. If the drying process is not initiated quickly, mold may start to grow in as little as 36 hours creating additional damage. In the unfortunate event your home or business is affected by water damage, stay calm and call the professionals at Rainbow International® of The Twin Ports Region to ultimately restore your property and peace of mind.
