ServiceMaster Restore-Water Damage Repair: An Essential Emergency Service

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 14, 2011) - With melting snow and heavy rain as two of the country's major causes of flooding, it pays to get to know your local water damage repair experts. When it comes to flooding, a fast response is the best response to avoid significant damage to your home or business. A reputable water damage repair company is on call 24/7 to assist home and business owners in emergency flooding situations. Water damage repair experts will start by assessing the situation to determine the level of water damage repair or flood damage restoration needed to your home or business. Home and business owners can prevent unwanted water damage by trusting quality flood damage and water damage repair professionals to handle your restoration and repair needs.

Fast response regarding water damage repair can mean the difference between minor mold remediation and extensive flood damage restoration. So when water or flooding damage has struck your home or business, don't hesitate to contact professional water damage repair experts.

Here are the five major stages of water damage that can affect your home or business:

  1. Water Migrates in All Directions - At first, water migrates horizontally from the source in all directions. Water runs the path of least resistance and travels into other areas and materials not originally affected. Without water damage repairs, water will spread laterally into adjoining rooms and penetrates materials below.

  2. Primary Structural Damage Starts - Time lapses can mean the difference between restoring your property and replacement. Saturated wood and other hygroscopic materials begin swelling. Increases in moisture content result in cupping, buckling, deformation and delaminating.

  3. Secondary Humidity Damage Begins - Proper control of the environment is critical. As the water begins to evaporate, indoor humidity increases beyond 60% which can result in additional damage to your property.

  4. Fungus Damage Begins - In time, fungi and bacteria spores germinate and can multiply in organic materials. The first evidence of their development is a musty odour. Finally, over time the growth becomes visible and advanced water damage repair must be performed immediately.

  5. Sick Building Syndrome - While damage to contents and structures occurs, indoor air quality can degrade rapidly. A lack of proper water damage repair can lead to bacteria and fungi becoming more hyperactive in the environment.
