Delaware River Flood Damage to your Yardley, Washington's Crossing, or New Hope Home
The last thing you want to see as a homeowner is standing water in your home, but some residents, especially those who live along the Delaware River, will unfortunately experience flood damage at some point. You may wonder how you will ever get all of the water out of your home. You may also think about the damage that will be left behind after the water is removed from your home. These are common concerns, and they can be dealt with through professional water remediation services.
The Damage Caused by Water in the Home
Water damage is, unfortunately, common, and it can be caused by a heavy rainstorm with torrential downpours, rising river or creek levels forcing groundwater into your house, a broken pipe or some other events that occur on the property. While there are many causes, the damage is very similar. Croydon flood damage can cause everything from warped drywall, wooden flooring, and wood furnishings to stained floors, foul odors and even mold growth. Dealing effectively with the water damage is important if you want your home restored to its former condition.
The Potential for Mold Growth
Any time water or even moist air remains in the home for more than a few days, the risk for mold growth skyrockets. Mold thrives in darker, wet areas. After a flood, your home may have many surfaces that are moist and conducive to mold growth. Mold, as a form of secondary water damage, can cause an unfortunate situation to turn into a much costlier event to correct. Rapid water extraction is the key to mitigating losses to your home's contents and structure.
