Here are some reasons why you will want to have the damage repaired in a timely fashion by the professionals at American Restoration.

What Can Happen if Water Damage is Not Cleaned Up?

Health Issues. When the water has been removed from the area there will still be contaminants left behind. Water is dirty and the particles that it leaves can make you sick and cause all sorts of health issues, not to mention the formation of mold, which can cause severe health issues.

Loss of Value. Water damage can also lower the value of your home. If you decide to sell your home, there is a good chance you will be required to repair the area before the sale can take place.

Structural Problems. Water can destroy the strength that certain materials have within. For instance, when water comes in contact with wood it causes the wood to expand. This makes the wood weak and more likely to break under pressure.
