SERVPRO Understands the Effect Water Damage Has on Garner Homes
Rapid Water Removal in Garner Homes Minimizes Damage
From natural disasters to faulty plumbing, there are many ways that water can damage your Garner home. Unwanted, pooling water can be a terrifying situation with devastating effects. Some of the effects may go unnoticed but should not be ignored. To help minimize the damages, you should consider hiring a water damage restoration company.
Leaving water damage in your Garner home untreated for an extended period can cost you in the long run. Structural weakening may occur depending on the amount of water and duration the problem goes unnoticed. Solid materials that make up the foundations of your home, such as masonry, stone, or concrete, can soak up water through their cracks and pores. The water can freeze during colder months and expand. Unless these pockets of water are removed, they weaken the entire structure leading to severe structural problems. Qualified SERVPRO water remediation specialists help inspect your home after significant water pooling or intrusion.

Effects of water on wood
Since many homes today have wooden floors, baseboards, and furnishings, along with load-bearing elements like posts and beams, SERVPRO addresses water damage to these areas in your home. Our technicians recognize that the damage may be widespread; hence come prepared for a thorough cleanup. Wood absorbs moisture immediately and begins to swell. If left untreated, the damp wood starts to rot. Subfloors may begin to warp and split and might require replacing and restoring. When exposed to water, drywall also deteriorates, damaging the wallpaper or paint on the walls.
