The Hidden Life of Water Damage in Your Sturgeon Bay, WI Home

Posted at 9:09 AM

Water is, in many ways, the foundation of life. This is great if you’re just trying to stay healthy with 8 glasses a day, but for your Sturgeon Bay, WI home, it’s not quite so beneficial. Water damage is a home disaster that comes with layers. It can ruin your belongings and create a haven in your home for foreign invaders such as mold, bugs, and bacteria. The water damage restoration offered by ServiceMaster Recovery by Restoration Holdings does more than simply dry out some damp carpet. We’ll help you reclaim your home from every after-effect that water damage invites.

One of the most talked about side effects of serious water damage is mold. What harm does mold really do? Sure, it can be dangerous if you get a ton of it, but what’s wrong with a few spores? Well, other than a pretty significant gross-out factor, mold is also a living organism. Homeowners who are dealing with mold after water damage aren’t just dealing with something unsightly; they’re dealing with a life form that’s subsisting off their home. By leaving water damage untreated, you’re basically leaving a tasty, damp buffet for molds to feast upon, and mold likely won’t be the only one to stop in.

If left unattended, water damage continues to create breeding grounds for other organisms as well as bugs. A damp environment is the perfect location for all sorts of creepy-crawlies to set up shop. A wide variety of insects prefer damp environments for breeding and egg-laying, which is definitely not the sort of party you want going on in your walls. By utilizing water damage restoration services, you also remove the food source and environmental comfort these bugs rely upon.

And finally, water damage also brings with it the perfect means for spreading bacteria. In small water damage events this may not be as much of a threat, but for large scale flooding and water-based disasters, water damage restoration becomes all the more vital for the good of public health. Bacteria and disease can spread through water in the right conditions, so preventing those conditions is ideal for everyone involved.
