The Importance of Water Damage Restoration

What is water damage restoration and why is it important? Water damage restoration is the process of water removal and extraction, drying and dehumidification, and cleaning and restoring. Water damage occurs when there is a burst pipe or leak, faulty appliance, or sewage backup. Natural disasters, such as flooding, can also be a cause. The effects of water damage can affect both your health and the structure of your home. Learn more about why it is essential to call for help when faced with water damage. 

Health & Safety

Water damage restoration is vital for the health and safety of you and those you live in your household. If untreated, bacteria can grow depending on where the water came from. Bugs and other funguses can appear, causing serious problems that can be threatening to your health and wellbeing. To be able to live safely in your home, it is important that the restoration process occurs in a timely manner.

Structural Damage

Physical signs of water damage may be present in your home. Discoloration on your walls and ceilings, stains, cracked paint, and more can indicate that there is a major issue at hand. Furthermore, your flooring, furniture, and other belongings may also have suffered damage. The root of the issue must be addressed as soon as possible so that any repairs can be done as well as restoration.


Mold grows in places where there is moisture, which is why it is not surprising that it appears when there is water damage. This type of fungus can result in respiratory problems, throat irritation, headaches, as well as other uncomfortable systems. Water damage restoration helps remove mold and makes your home safe to breathe and live in.
