7/8/2019 (Permalink)

Time matters when it comes to water damage. Don't delay in contacting SERVPRO of West Seneca/Lancaster to begin the mitigation process immediately.

Water damage can happen at any time, any day. That is why SERVPRO of West Seneca/Lancaster is available to help you 27/7, 365 days of the year. We know that once water damage occurs, time matters. Within two hours of your call to our office, someone will be onsite to begin assessing the damage and begin mitigation work if needed. We always have crew on call, ready to assist you with any kind of water damage.

Time matters when it comes to a water loss because within minutes water quickly spreads throughout your property, saturating everything in its path. The water will be absorbed into everything such as walls, floors, upholstery and even your belongings. That water can cause your furniture finishes to bleed, causing permanent staining on carpets and floors. Your priceless photos, book and other paper goods will begin to warp.

Between 24 to 48 hours after the initial loss drywall begins to swell and break down, metal surfaces begin to tarnish and furniture begins to swell and crack. The dyes and inks from cloth and paper goods begin to spread and stain the surface they are on. You may begin to notice a musty odor forming and lingering.

Within just a week mold and mildew will begin to grow and spread. You may notice doors, windows and studs swelling and warping. Metal surfaces will begin to rust and corrode. Paint will begin to blister and wood flooring begins to swell and warp. Your home may now be at a serious risk for a biohazard contamination.

After a week has passed restoration time and cost will increase dramatically, and replacing contaminated belonging and rebuilding of the structure may be extensive. The structural safety, mold growth and biohazard contaminants pose a serious risk to any occupants living in the home. So if there is any water damage in your home, call the experts at SERVPRO of West Seneca/Lancaster right away! Someone from our office is always available at (716) 674-1103 and are “Here to help”.
