Commercial Property Restoration After a Water Damage in Ventura, CA.
Water can cause extensive damage to your business quicker than you would think. There are great benefits to having it removed ASAP.
Mold Can Form In 24-72 Hours After a Flood
The moisture level indoors changes very quickly after a flood or water loss. Water can be absorbed by carpet and drywall. This can increase humidity exponentially. In fact, humidity can accelerate mold growth and cause this fungus to grow as soon as 24 hours after water is present. Having water damage and mold remediation company come right away to perform mitigation and mold cleanup may reduce repair costs and get you back to business.
Warrping of wood floors
Wood building materials warp if mitigation does not take place within at least 48 hours. If water is not mitigated it can increase the water vapor in the air and cause damage to wooden furniture, molding, and flooring. Remove furniture as soon as it is safe to do so and store it in a cool, dry place until affected rooms are repaired and restored.
If flooding in your building was caused by plumbing, the results can be just as bad. For example, if a pipe burst in the break room, the water can affect electrical systems and equipment and cause a short circuit, which increases the risk of fire. Extracting standing water can reduce all of these potential hazards.
