SERVPRO of North Sacramento specializes in water damage remediation
Water damage can be costly. It can ruin personal property you cherish such as family photos or your grandmother's antique hutch. These items can be worth millions or be worth nothing to someone else. Not only can water damage ruin your precious personal possessions but it can also seriously damage the home in which they are stored. If you act quickly, you can minimize the damage and possibly save some of your possessions. Some of your success depends on how long the water has been around. It is possible that some pieces of furniture can be saved and restored, and sometimes, even carpet can be cleaned. Unfortunately, electronics hit by water are, generally, not salvageable. Any kind of water, liquid or moisture damage will void the warranty on that electronic, if a warranty exists.
Do not ignore flood water in places, like your basement, even if there is only one inch of water or you notice dampness. Even slightly wet areas can become a perfect breeding ground for mold. Mold is the result of unwanted moisture which forms colonies that will often appear as fluffy and hairy patches and spots. Mold growth can ruin walls, carpet, flooring, furniture and cause poor indoor air quality. Poor indoor air quality can cause respiratory problems such as asthma and lead to severe illness. Preventing mold growth is key to keeping your home's air clean and healthy. Call your insurance company immediately before you do anything, and file a claim, if necessary.
