Water Damage Restoration and Repair
Plumbing issues, washing machine leaks, bursting water pipes, an aging water heater, or inclement weather- These are just a few of the common reasons for water damage in your home or work place. SERVPRO of Carteret and Onslow Counties has a team of trained professionals ready to help mitigate when water damage happens in your home. It is important to get the damage under control immediately. Within minutes the water quickly spreads throughout your property, saturating everything in its path. Water is absorbed into walls, floors, upholstery, and belongings. Furniture finishes may bleed, causing permanent staining on carpets. Photographs, books, and other paper goods start to swell and warp. Within 24 hours drywall begins to swell and break down, metal surfaces begin to tarnish, furniture begins to swell and crack, dyes and inks from cloth and paper goods spread and stain, and a musty odor appears. Two days to a week after the water damage, mold and mildew may grow and spread. When water sits for more than a week, restoration time and cost increase dramatically; replacing contaminated materials and structural rebuilding may be extensive. Structural safety, mold growth, and biohazard contaminants pose serious risks to occupants. Let us help mitigate water damage in your home or work place and help make it "Like it never even happened."
