What is "Clean" Water Damage?
There may be instances when the water that has encroached upon your home is “clean.” When a pipe bursts or an appliance malfunctions, or there is a leak in your roof that allows falling rain water to enter your home, oftentimes the water will be deemed “clean.” This is perhaps the easiest type of water damage to handle, since there will not be too many microbes living in the water. The biggest hazard clean water presents is if the area that has been damaged is not properly cleaned and dried. This can result in mold and fungus growth. If the water has been standing in your home fore over twenty-four hours, it is advisable for you to contact an emergency restoration service, such as SERVPRO of Galveston Island/Lake Jackson, to ensure that the water is dried thoroughly. This is especially important when the area affected is easily saturated, such as carpets or drywall.
