When to Call Water Damage Restoration Professionals
Water damage to an Indianapolis-area business or home can be caused in many ways. Heavy storms can reveal roof leaks and foundation cracks that let the water inside. During winter, pipes exposed to cold temperatures can freeze and burst.
Toilets, sinks, dishwashers, and clothes washers can slowly leak behind walls, floors, and inside cabinets. Sewers can back up into basements and through the drains on lower levels of homes.
As you can see, water can get into your home and damage it in many ways. So, while one may think drinking water or rainwater isn’t as damaging as sewer water or black water, that’s not the case.
Will Clean Water Damage My Home?
While sewer water or blackwater, as defined, can quickly lead to mold growth in a home, clean water can also lead to dangerous mold growth. Blackwater contains lots of dirty bacteria that can quickly promote mold growth by itself.
Clean water can cause mold spores that are naturally present in the air, and dust can also lead to mold growth. The dangers in clean water leading to mold growth are that clean water can quickly go unseen in a home due to the lack of odor compared to black water.
Clean water, or gray water, rainwater, can leak into a home’s attic, walls, or crawl spaces and linger without being spotted. This water can lead to mold spores activating and growing in these unseen areas. It’s not until the mold spreads to visible parts of the home or causes a musty odor that it is finally found. Unfortunately, by that time, the damage caused by the mold can be pretty extensive.
Look for the Signs of Water Damage and Call the Experts Right Away
Whenever it rains, it’s always a good idea to check around your home for any leaks. Check the external walls, ceilings, and windows. If you have a basement or crawlspace, check it for any water entering your home. Always check around sinks, tubs, showers, and washers for sitting water or even the smallest of leaks. It doesn’t take much water to cause damage to a home.
