It can happen in the walls, masonry, ceilings, balconies, roofing, flooring, foundation flooring and walls, as well as suspended ceilings. There are some factors, such as materials, that can make your home more inclined towards water damage. Concrete, plaster, wood, felt, bitumen, gravel, boards, brick, plaster or plasterboard, sand-lime, and more are susceptible to water damage and must be repaired to prevent worse damages.

Cleaning and Repairing Water Damage
When it comes to water damage restoration, the overall process is more scientific than many realize. When we come to perform water damage restoration, we must assess the condition to determine if the property is able to be restored instead of simply replaced. We base the assessment on the amount of damage that has been done to the property and the degree to which it is contaminated. We consider the costs of replacement in comparison to restoration. If the water damage is not dealt with correctly and as immediately as possible, it can pose health risks, financial burdens and cause business to be interrupted on a large scale.
