Increase in Mold Growth

When there’s extra water present in your home or office, it leads to the likelihood that mold will start to grow. Mold can grow within 24 to 48 hours after excess water is present in your space. When mold is present in your space, it can make people sick. When you choose Ram Restoration as your water damage restoration company, you’ll also get a company that treats mold and the potential mold that can grow in your space.

Health Problems Possible

Depending on how long the mold caused by water damage has grown on your property, it can lead to future health problems. Mold sickness symptoms tend to mimic allergy symptoms but are much more serious. If you start to experience allergy symptoms when you don’t usually have them or develop allergy symptoms when you’ve never had them, it may be a sign that mold is growing in your space.

The Water Could Be Contaminated

Depending on where the water came from, it could be contaminated. If the damage comes from sewage, the third category of water damage, it may have E. coli, which can make people sick when they come into contact with the water. It’s always best to call a water damage restoration company, but if the water damage is category three, it’s imperative to call the professionals. We are a fully insured and licensed water restoration company.

Long Term Water Damage Causes Structural Damage

The longer you’ve had water damage, the greater the chance of structural damage in your space. Water damage causes structural damage by weakening the materials your home is built with. Water can also enter your home through cracks in the foundation in your home, which damages the foundation. This happens over time, but it’s vital that you contact a restoration professional.

Could Cause Electrical Problems

Water damage may cause electrical problems. If the water is close to electrical outlets, it can cause problems. This could lead to an increased risk of electrocution. To reduce that risk, shut off the electricity to your space to keep those around you safe.
