How To Prevent Secondary Water Damage

1/17/2018 (Permalink)

Water can be intrusive and harmful. There is more to its cleanup than just removing the water and addressing the visible damage. If a facility is not cleaned properly, it can lead to secondary water damage that could result in hazardous conditions and black mold.

Types of Water Damage

Primary water damage is the damage that you can see and detect. It is the obvious damage. Primary damage might include moisture wicked into drywall, warped floors, wet carpet and pad, and water-damaged furniture.

Secondary damage isn’t always as obvious, so you may not notice it right away. It is usually the result of long-term damage that was not taken care of in a timely enough manner. It can result in swollen doors, wood floors, baseboards and door casings. You may see cracking walls. Water that evaporates quickly can also lead to secondary water damage. The high humidity allows moisture to penetrate porous material like fabrics. This type of damage can be extremely harmful to your home. It can cause structural damage and lead to black mold problems.
