If the water damage is left untreated or not cared for properly, your home and belongings could be unsalvageable, resulting in safety concerns, health risks, and costly repair expenses. Leave the cleanup to the experts and call ServiceMaster by Rice today.

Health Concerns

If the water damage is not treated and cleaned up properly, mold can start to grow on all the wet surfaces in your home. If the wet surfaces aren’t dried quickly, mold will begin to take over your home and belongings within 24 hours of the water damage. Restoration experts have the proper equipment to detect even the slightest bit of mold that could be growing inside the walls or ceilings of your property. At ServiceMaster by Rice, our service technicians are trained for mold remediation. Cleaning up mold, mildew, or bacteria on your own could result in health problems from skin contact or inhalation. Flood water is dirty and often carries bacteria that could be harmful to you as well.

Safety First

When your home is impacted by large amounts of water, the walls and ceilings could be compromised. As the water begins to soak into the walls, your home is at risk of structural damage. When you enter your home and begin to remove the water, you never know what might happen. Your ceiling could potentially cave in, or a wall could collapse. It is important to think of your safety first and hire restoration specialists to handle all the water removal and damage cleanup. Restoration professionals have the proper protective equipment to avoid any safety or health hazards in your water damaged home.

Return Home Quicker

Professional restoration experts will extract the water quickly to minimize the damage. ServiceMaster by Rice technicians have the proper training, tools, and equipment to dry out your property and belongings quickly. Trained technicians will remove any standing water in your property, extract excess water from your carpets and furniture, and then begin the drying process. It is important to remember that the faster you contact a restoration company after your home experiences water damage, the quicker the water will be removed and you will be able to return home.
