Water Damage Restoration
From insurance company research it has be found that 98% of basements will experience water damage in their lifetime. This is not that surprising as most of the pipes in a home or business are found in the basement and that water will naturally gravitate towards the basement. Furthermore, if the foundation of your Houston property has not been properly waterproofed then overtime it is quite possible that the constant pressure will lead to cracks in the foundation and water seeping in.
Few things are as worrisome to a home or business owner as water damage. This is because water can get into everything and cause significant damage. There is even the worry that water damage could cause an electrical fire or black out.

Why should I get water damage removed as soon as possible?
Water damage comes in two stages. First the direct damage where water comes in contact with flooring, furniture, walls, ceilings, carpets, and the like. This causes damage even if the water is clean as the water saturates whatever it touches. But given the right procedure, equipment, and know-how this form of damage can usually be reverse and much of the property which has had direct content can be restored with relative ease.
Besides direct property damage, water damage comes with risks that are even more concerning. This is the second stage of water damage where the high amount of water vapor in the air leads to large amounts of moisture being absorbed into the property. This can cause damage to areas which were previously unaffected – leading drywall to buckle, ceiling tiles to sag, and wood to warp. But the biggest threat is that very humid areas are breeding grounds for mold and mildew which are very hazardous to the health of you and your family.
