Thornton, IL Water Removal And Extraction Services!
How much damage can water really cause to my home, or property?
Water can cause more damage to property than any other element especially, if you do not extract the water quickly. Water is more destructive and causes more damage to your business, commercial property and homes than fire. Not only does water cause damage initially, but it continues to do so, if it is allowed to remain in the property. Acting fast, when your home, or place of business is affected by water damage can save you thousands of dollars. Extracting the water from carpet, floors, and materials in your home quickly can avoid long term damage in the form of mold.
Mold will start to grow within 48 hours of the initial water damage and will be hard to stop from spreading within 72 hours, so reaction time is crucial. Mold will grow following a water damage disaster and spread as fast as the wind will carry it. Mold brings with it a number of complications and health issues. Mold
can cause severe health issues, from mild allergic reactions to respiratory diseases, and perhaps even death.
Fast, Efficient Water Extraction, Drying, And Damage Restoration In Thornton, IL Prevents Mold Growth!
The biggest key to preventing mold even bigger than applying disinfectants and chemical agents is simply drying the property quickly and removing all the water damaged materials.

7.) regularly inspect gutters, down spouts, and window wells to make sure there is no blockage and proper draining
8.) check the backs of appliances and look at the plumbing, or water supply lines to check for leaks and corrosion
9.) make sure windows and doors are closed, when it is is raining especially those leading to the basement
10.) run a slow drip through your plumbing supply lines and into the drains during the winter to keep water moving, so as to prevent freezing of the pipes
