Water Damage describes various possible losses caused by water intruding where it will enable attack of a material or system by destructive processes such as rotting of wood, growth, rusting of steel, de-laminating of materials such as plywood, and many others. Water damage can occur from broken pipes, leaking water heaters, floods, dishwasher water line, also refrigerator water lines and more; with this damage toxic mold can start growing within a short period of time. Water migrates into areas not originally affected. Water spreads laterally into adjoining rooms, penetrates materials below and wicks up into porous materials above. It is best to evaluate all affected areas, not just areas with visible saturation. Saturated materials begin swelling as they absorb moisture. In many situations drying will restore them, and in others the damage may be permanent.
Encompass Mitigation and Contracting Group can evaluate the damage, provide you with the best options available for your situation. Rapid drying will help to reduce the chance of permanent damage. As water evaporates it causes an abnormal humidity condition. High humidity can damage some porous materials if allowed to continue. Humidity damage is most common when the indoor humidity exceeds 60% over time. It is best to reduce the indoor humidity quickly to help prevent humidity damage.
Mold damage is defined as a growth of fungus that occurs in a home or other moist warm conditions. It can grow in humid environment and can become toxic and life threatening. Mold can be hidden in air ducts, ac units, close to leaking or broken pipes, under sinks and many other places. After water intrusion, mold and bacterial spores germinate and multiply, it can invade sheet rock, ceilings, furniture and or all of your possessions. Given acceptable growth conditions, one organism can multiply to more than one billion organisms in less than 24 hours. Microorganisms can cause mold damage and degrade indoor air quality. Some microorganisms produce antigens and allergens, which cause allergies while other can cause infections and toxic diseases.
Encompass Mitigation and Contracting Group can evaluate the damage, provide you with the best options available for your situation. We understand that several things can be done to reduce mold growth and damage to affected areas. Water can be removed as quickly and as thoroughly as possible. Antimicrobial agents can be applied to inhibit the growth of mold and other bio-contaminants. Rapid air-movement can be introduced into areas and cavities to increase the rate of evaporation.
Fire and Smoke damage Fire damage refers to the physical damage to a property as a result of burning. This damage may either be directly caused by the flames or could occur due to smoke and other corrosive substances emitted by the fire. In terms of insurance, fire damage is one of the types of coverage offered in property insurance. Smoke damage is physical damage that is caused from the smoke created by a fire but not the fire itself. This is a type of damage that is typically insured under a homeowners’ insurance policy or other policy that covers damage from fire. Toxins created by the burning of hazardous materials can remain in the air making it unsafe to breathe. Other hazards could be water damage that was caused by putting out the fire.
