How to Treat Water Damage from Toronto Floods?

Most houses will experience flooding at some point, it is not only a headache but it can cause more problems than you might think at first. Not only will flooding often cause damage to your property and contents but it can often cause mold and increase the number of pests in your home.

In many cases when people's houses flood they think that they just need to remove all the water and their job is done. Although in many cases it is not that simple, during a flood we highly recommend you call GTA Restoration’s water damage specialists. Who can help you deal with many problems that you might face? We’ve listed two common problems below.

The Unseen Water Damage:

Sometimes your property is damaged more than you think, for example, if you have a water leak and water manages to seep into the drywall of your house simply repairing the leak and removing the water will not solve all your problems. The water will likely still be in the walls even if they seem completely dry. In order to remove this water, you need a specialist to treat it with chemical dehydrating agents that can absorb all of the water from the wall.

Mold Removal:

It is common that after a flood a property will have mold problems due to water that has remained in walls and other hard to reach places. When the water does evaporate it leaves a damp area that serves as a perfect spot for mold to grow. We highly recommend you call the GTA Restoration mold removal team if you discover any mold at all in your house.

Molds that grow on drywall or under carpets are very dangerous. These molds are very commonly poisonous and can cause many problems to your health.
