Plumbing leaks and water intrusion can cause incredible amounts of damage. Over time, excess moisture can cause issues from mold, which leads to poor indoor air quality, and even structural rot, which leads to building structures that are structurally unsafe. Whether it’s a small plumbing leak, a burst pipe, flood damage, or any other potential causes, water damage needs a quick and effective water damage restoration plan.

The need for a quick response comes down to the fact that the longer that standing water sits, it potentially become more contaminated. As the water continues to sit, not only does the risk for bacteria development start, mold growth will continue to rise, and additional water damage will likely develop that require additional restoration.
