Damage That Occurs From Water
Water is known as the universal solvent for very good reasons. Where water damage occurs, it has ability to corrode materials and provide a breeding ground for existing life forms such as mould and bacteria. It can also cause various other damaging effects, ranging from cracking and swelling of fixtures to faults in electrical components.
Water damage isn’t only caused by flooding. Water from extinguishing a fire can also cause damage. Independent Contractor Network contractors are fully aware of this and are at hand to help you through the whole fire and flood restoration process.
Using thermal imaging, moisture detection and chemical testing equipment, we will find the source and identify the true extent of any damage. We also treat the affected surrounding materials to prevent secondary damage such as dry rot and mould spores.
Initial water damage is called primary damage, and the effects are usually instantly identifiable. What is harder to detect is secondary damage, as the moisture changes from liquid to vapour and travels throughout the building. It then condensates and is absorbed by porous materials, creating damage that could pop up in several years’ time.
Secondary damage and its subsequent effects are often preventable, which is why it is essential that all water damage repairs are conducted thoroughly and professionally. Independent Contractor Network will use extractor fans to dry out all humid air within the property and ensure no water vapour is left.
Independent Contractor Network Ensure That:
- The area is made safe
- All materials are fully dried
- The area and surrounding area affected by water damage is restored to its pre-damage condition
- A certificate of dryness is supplied on completion
