Santa Cruz Water Damage Restoration
Water damage can often catch homeowners and businesses by surprise. Whether it’s an overloaded washing machine, a fractured pipe, or a leaky roof, water damage should be considered an emergency situation, as it only becomes worse the longer it goes unaddressed and even becomes a health hazard. Many building materials are prone to absorbing water, as well as furniture, upholstery, and cabinetry. Wooden fixtures will warp and become misshapen, while plaster and drywall start to crumble, and fabrics become host to mold and bacteria, which presents the definite health risks. Long-term water damage can also lead to respiratory problems and allergic reactions. By not taking immediate action you could put your family’s health at risk.
