There are a few reasons why professional water damage construction and restoration is important. The first is simply about your safety. Waterlogged homes are the perfect breeding ground for bacteria, mold, and pathogens. Twenty -four hours after a flood, toxic mold can begin to grow that puts your health and the health of your family members at risk. The odds of bad bacterial growth surge again after the 48-hour mark. Contact ServiceMaster 24/7 for immediate water removal and reconstruction services.
When ServiceMaster 24/7, the water damage restoration company reaches you, the technicians will first and foremost find the source of the water and stop it where possible. This might involve repairing damage to your walls or your roofing, or it might mean fixing a pipe or blocking flood water. Either way, ServiceMaster 24/7 will prevent the water from flooding your property any more so that they can get to work fixing the problem. In the case of gradual water damage, probes and infrared sensors can be used to find out where the problem is coming from and what needs to be done to fix it and sometimes it is not obvious.
There are also a few things that the experts at ServiceMaster 24/7 will do, like:
- Clearing the area and moving out any items that are at risk of further damage

You can have the peace of mind knowing that everything affected by flooding has been dried and treated to prevent mold growth. And while cost is usually the reason most people will try to do it themselves, they may save money by hiring a professional. Consider the extent of the damage and evaluate the amount of time necessary for you to extract the water and dry the area. If it is more than 48 hours, you should work with a professional who can extract the water quickly and begin the drying process sooner.
