Water Damage in Heavy Traffic Hallway
This small commercial job had weeks worth of water damage that had been left unattended. Our team was able to extract the water but had to set up containment in order to prevent contaminants from spreading throughout the structure. The water that was in the carpet had come from a clean water source. However, since the damage had been left for a long amount of time, it was categorized as unclean water. If the water is left in an environment with restricted air flow and elevated temperatures, bacteria and mold growth can begin in as soon as 24 hours after the water affects the structure.
