Secondary Damage is Avoidable

Water Damage Secondary Damage is Avoidable Secondary damage occurred because the homeowner did not take care of the leaking water when it started.

Imagine you have a water leak in an area that you don't initially notice. You probably figure that this problem has already been settling in for a while, and won’t get any worse than it is. While you may not be able to see all of the affected material and area, there may be a lot more going on than you think.

If you see any sign of a water leak or moisture where it shouldn't be, do not hesitate to call us and have us assess the situation. If water leakage or damage goes untreated, usually because one cannot see the affected area themselves, secondary damage can occur and create a much larger problem. If leaking water is left alone in flooring such as wood or carpet, or drywall or ceiling, organic growth can spread much farther and cover a lot more material than originally. If this happens, it can spread and make for much more work in order to correct it.

It is imperative to stop the source of leaking water, remove any affected material and dry everything as soon as possible when dealing with water damage. You don't want to pay for secondary damage!!
