Water Damage Testing To Combat Property Loss
If left to time, water damage can create a tremendous amount of stress on affected areas of your building or property. Toxic mold can begin to form in less than 48 hours after material gets wet, so that’s why it’s important to act fast if a pipe in your home should burst open or a roof should spring a leak.
Storm Water Can Be Hazardous
Water main breaks can come from your house, a neighbors house, or even the town’s main sewer line. Standing water is the perfect breeding ground for harmful microorganisms and toxic bacteria’s that can lead to various illnesses and threatening diseases. Black water is classified as any sewage that flows through the plumbing system in a home or commercial building. When this water leaks out into a community, where it can contaminate soil and groundwater, it presents a hazard. Standing water from floods or heavy storms can also be very harmful and are considered a hazard to step foot in without the possible risk of getting sick or contracting a painful skin rash due to unknown pollutants.
