Frequently Asked Questions about Water Damage

Water damage should always be taken care of quickly to avoid further damage. If it is not handled right away, water damage can cause significant harm to yourselves and your properties. Here are some frequently asked questions that our customers often ask our experts.

The worst thing about water damage is that it might occur at any time. Some common causes are heavy snow, malfunctioning appliances, leaking pipes, floods, blocked gutters, toilets, or plumbing overflow.

When water damages your properties, you may experience a number of issues. Such as:

  • Your home's paint may start to flake and peel, and some brown patches will start to appear.
  • Water damage causes mold to grow in your home, which is quite dangerous to your health.
  • If the wood absorbs water over time, it will destroy your furniture and belongings and cause them to rot, degrade, and crumble.

To prevent water damage, you need to act right away; else, the situation can worsen.

  • You must identify the source of any leaky pipes or damaged appliances.
  • Clean gutters and toilets since clogged ones might lead to water overflow.
  • Check for cracks or holes in your roof or the structure of your home.
  • Electrical devices that have been in touch with water should not be used.

Mold is a fungus, and its overgrowth in the house is the root cause of many adverse health effects, including allergies, skin irritation, nausea, sickness, respiratory problems, and more.

Some forms of water damage are possible to repair on your own, while others require the assistance of a professional, Contact PDQ Restoration for the best water damage restoration services.

Depending on the severity of the damage and the drying method, a normal drying time can be 5 days.

It is better to hire a professional in this situation since restoration companies can quickly resolve your water damage issues. You can get in touch with PDQ Restoration because we offer free estimates and emergency service 24/7.
