You don't need to live in a flood zone to worry about flood damage to your home. A simple mistake like leaving your bathwater on for too long can turn your home into a soaked mess. When you stumble upon flooding in your bathroom, or any other room in your house, what should you do? You might normally attack the situation using a simple mop. You could use towels and old clothes to make a border to prevent the water from spreading any further. You might even use your own wet-vac.
But what if the flooding has been going on for several minutes? What if the water has already spread more than just a few feet? Will a mop and a household wet-vac really be able to handle the situation? Let’s look at a few possibilities.
The water that is pooling on your bathroom floor may have already spread farther than you can see. Water can flow under walls and seep into nearby rooms. As water passes underneath the walls, it can get absorbed into drywall, wooden studs, or insulation. All of that can be completely hidden from view until it’s too late. That seeping water, if not taken care of quickly, can soon lead to mold, a serious hazard. It can also start to decay particle board subflooring that could lead to a soft spot in your floor, or even a hole!
So, while the mop and towels and wet-vac may be perfect for simple spills, more serious flooding needs to be handled by Joliet water damage professionals with experience. Call ServicePros instead to inspect your damage and fix the hidden problems.
