Dangers of Commercial Water Damage

Here are some of the reasons why it’s important to call on SERVPRO of Fontana as soon as possible whenever water damage occurs.
Important Facts about Water Damage:
- Mildew and mold can start growing in unsuspecting places. It can be hard to find some mold if you don’t know what to look for and where to check. Mold can lead to a number of different breathing issues, especially black mold. It only takes about 48 hours for mold to start growing in damp areas.
- Water damage can also lead to structural issues. The water can seep into the foundation, walls, and floor, weakening the support structure and making the building unstable.
- If any electrical wiring gets wet, that can lead to a number of problems. Fuses can blow, appliances can be damaged, or someone could even be electrocuted.
- When water damage is caused by leaks or burst pipes, you may have raw sewage back up into your business. This can bring bacteria and other germs into the area and lead to illness. Having a professional clean up the area is vital in order to keep everyone safe.
