Whether it’s a broken pipes, natural flooding, sewer backups or after another issue like a fire, water can cause serious damage to furnishings and belongings and threaten a building structure. Mould is also another major concern that can result in serious long-term health issues and mould growth and related bacteria can begin to form within 48 hours.
I would suggest that about 77% of our claims are water related. And of that 77% it would be reasonable to say 30% of the people, figure that they can just clean up and dry up things on their own… WRONG!!
We see homeowners who have tried for days to suck up the water with a consumer shop vac, maybe put a few household fans and dehumidifier in the area and turn up the furnace only to call once the retched smell of mould and bacteria starts to fill the whole house.
It is important that water damage is dealt with promptly and professionally.
