Flood Cleanup in Lincoln, NE
About Indoor Flooding
From severe damage to hazardous living conditions, water damage can create a myriad of problems. Porous building materials and furnishings will absorb any amount of excess water, but the situation worsens if there is standing water. Affected materials can become discolored, warped, and structurally unsound. The water can also easily spread to new areas, due to the porous nature of the materials.
Additionally, flooding can create dangerous health conditions:
- Contaminated water: The floodwater might be contaminated depending on its source. Water could have mixed with sewage prior to entering the property, or it could have come from the plumbing system and contain harmful elements. This is why it’s important to keep your distance from the floodwater if it might be contaminated.
- Mold growth: Mold thrives in moist environments, making it a legitimate possibility in the aftermath of flooding. This is why water damaged areas and materials are prone to mold growth.
