Johnson Carpet Solutions understands that flooding can happen at any hour and a fast response makes all the difference. Water is an abnormal condition and can cause or contribute to any number of problems. The damage and health implications increase the longer the materials remain wet. There are at least 4 progressive stages of indoor water damage.
1. Water migrates into areas not originally affected. Water spreads laterally into adjoining rooms, penetrates materials below and wicks up into porous materials above. It is best to evaluate all affected areas, not just areas that are visible saturated.
2. Saturated materials begin swelling as they absorb moisture. In many situations drying and restoration will restore them, and in others the damage may be permanent. Rapid drying will help reduce the chance of permanent damage.
3. As water evaporates, it causes an abnormally humid condition. High humidity can damage some porous materials if allowed to continue. Humidity damage is most common when indoor humidity exceeds 60% over time. It is best to reduce the indoor humidity quickly to help prevent humidity damage.
4. After water intrusion, mold and bacteria spores germinate and multiply. Given acceptable growth conditions, one organism can multiply into more than one billion organisms in less than 24 hours. Microorganisms can cause mold damage and degrade indoor air quality. Some microorganisms produce antigens and allergens, which cause allergies while others, can cause infection and toxic disease.
