Water damage is insidious. It’s not unusual for homeowners to lack understanding on exactly how extensive water damage can be. Water damage is most often associated with flooding, storms, and broken pipes, but there are many other situations in which water damage can be present, including:
- Water damage from fire-fighting efforts
- Burst fish tanks
- Leaky swimming pools
- Old leaky pipes in your walls or floors
The typical timeline of water damage:
1. Immediate threats:
- Water spreads throughout your home and property, soaking everything in its wake.
- Belongings are saturated: clothing, carpeting, furniture, personal items.
- Paint and finishes on furniture and flooring are ruined.

- Wooden chairs and tables warp and develop mold.
- Floors and trim crack and break irreversibly.
- Mold and mildew can impact the health of your family and pets.
4. After one week:
