Damage from one source often leads to damage from another which is why it is critical to ensure the company you hire has the experience to manage multiple situations. A fire, for example, leads to smoke and soot damage. The water used to put it out causes its own problems and is then a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Improper clean up only exacerbates the damage and will result in unexpected hardships down the road.
Water and Mold Damage
As with fire damage, water can wreak havoc very quickly. The most common causes of this type of damage are:
- Frozen Pipes or Pipes that are broken
- Hot Water Heater – Failures
- Washing Machine Hoses – Incorrect installation or breaks
- Toilet overflows
- Ice maker line malfunctions
- A/C leaks or damage
- Broken water mains
- Heavy rain
- Ground saturation
Inspecting indoor areas regularly may prevent damage from occurring but is no guarantee. In addition, the damage may not be readily apparent and could be much farther reaching than you expect. To make matters worse, you may not have necessary insurance coverage so be sure to contact your agent to find out more about your policy.
Mold damage takes longer to develop but responding quickly to water destruction goes a long way toward minimizing or even preventing it from taking hold.
Fire, Smoke, and Soot damage
Despite precaution and maintenance, fires can be caused by circumstances within the home as well as those outside. Your home may not be at risk internally but neighboring fires and external situations will still strike without prejudice. Some of the more common reasons for fires are:
- Kitchen based
- Fireplace and chimney malfunctions
- Element exposures such as lightning strikes or fire jumping from one building to another
As with water damage, fire damage is often more extensive than it may appear and it presents safety risks as well. Emergency board-ups, hazardous matter cleans up, and area clean up go a long way toward mitigating the dangers of the site. Incorrect cleaning methods of soot damage can grind it into the surfaces and make the problem worse.
