Having flood damage in your home is more than just an emergency—depending on the extent of the damage, it could make your home unlivable until the damage gets fixed. Many people associate water and flood damage with Mother Nature, such as storms and hurricanes, but these aren’t the only reasons that water damage can happen. You can be miles from a flood plain and still have damage. Perhaps you have a broken septic system, or a leaky pipe in the basement you didn’t know about. It’s possible that you had an appliance suddenly stop working, such as a hot water heater or washing machine. In these cases, it may not be as sudden as a flash flood but still needs attention. If you’ve experienced water and flood damage in Lemon Grove, Hometown Restoration can help.
One of the main reasons you want to get rid of water damage, even if it’s minor, as soon as it happens, is because of mold growth. Now, it’s true that mold spores are present in every home, even those newly built. But, the presence of moisture and standing water can cause rapid growth of mold spores, which can be toxic if inhaled by you and your family. This is why water damage can be a serious health issue.
After we perform an inspection, we’ll drain, dry, clean, and sanitize, and then restore your home to its original condition so that you feel safe again.
