How to Resolve Water Damage In Your Naples Home Without the Headaches
How a Long Term Leak Causes Water Damage to your Naples Home
Every year, many thousands of American homes in communities like Naples sustain water damage from leaks. Whether the leak starts from a faucet, pipe, or crack in the building exterior, a leak can cause significant and permanent damage to the structure over time. While most leaks can be repaired with a few quick fixes, the damaging effects should be handled by a professional restoration company like SERVPRO. Otherwise, you may not be able to handle all of the necessary restorative processes on your own and could see some of these long-term consequences happen.
Many substances including wood, metal, and stone, can sustain severe water damage in Naples homes that use them as construction materials. The slow but consistent flow of water from a leak can cause erosion on any surface it touches. The longer this process goes on, the more damage that may be caused. Depending on the materials in contact with water and the presence of any other possible contaminants, we may take any of several approaches to reverse these effects, some of which may involve extra safety precautions.
American homes naturally provide the ideal environment for most species of fungi to grow in, and the addition of a little extra water can sometimes be enough to foster a significant mold problem in an area. Some types of mold can cause health effects, so you should always be careful when you suspect mold may be growing in your home. SERVPRO technicians are certified to look for and take safety precautions against fungal spores whenever they deal with water damages and leaks.
Ruined Electrical Systems
Less commonly, a leak may allow water to leak into electrical systems in the home. This can cut off power to a room or sometimes even the entire home. Should that be the case, we both work to restore problems ourselves and work with specialists to keep the situation safe and minimally damaging.
