Any water coming into a home is an abnormal condition. Damages and health implications become more alarming when the moisture remains in place for an extended time. There are four progressive stages of indoor water damage:
- Water migrates into areas not initially affected. It spreads laterally into adjoining rooms, penetrates materials below, and absorbs into porous materials above.
- Saturated materials swell as they absorb moisture. In many situations, drying and restoration can save them. In others, the damage can be permanent. Rapid drying helps reduce the chances of having to rip and replace walls and floors.
- As water evaporates, it causes an abnormal humidity condition. High humidity can damage some materials. Reduce indoor moisture quickly to help prevent humidity damage.
- After water intrusion, mold and bacterial spores germinate and multiply. Given acceptable growth conditions, one organism can multiply to more than one billion in a single day. Some molds produce antigens and allergens, while others can cause infections and toxic diseases.
