Hardwood damage in Corvallis, Oregon.

When you’re struck with water damage it's best to handle it fast. 

After just a few minutes water damage can...

  • Absorbed into walls and floors.
  • Water can spread fast throughout your home, damaging everything it comes into contact with. 
  • Photos, books, and other personal items begin to swell and warp.

After one, ten, fifteen or twenty four hours of water sitting and soaking in it can cause...

  • Drywall to swell.
  • Furniture starts to swell and crack.
  • Odors become present.

More than 48 hours... 

  • Mold may grow.
  • Metal starts rusting and corroding.
  • Furniture has signs of mold.
  • Hardwood floors swell.
  • Even biohazard contamination can occur.

Waiting more than a week to get the issue inspected and taken care of can...

  • Cause you to pay more. 
  • Having to replacing any contaminated materials or structural rebuilding can be pricey.
  • With mold, contaminants and structure being a concern at this point, it can cause dangerous risks to the occupants. 

If you are concerned about possible water damage give SERVPRO of Salem West a call for an inspection today at (503) 393-9999.
