When water damage occurs, SERVPRO® of South Mecklenburg County needs to be Faster to Any Size Disaster. The clock is ticking, and it is easier, more cost-effective, and more efficient to mediate your water loss as soon as possible.

What is happening? Here is the usual timeline:

  • Within minutes of water entering your home, water contamination begins to spread, and furniture finishes become damaged and begin to leach into fabrics.
  • Within hours, furniture soaking in water will begin to swell and delaminate, causing permanent damage. Odors are amplified by the humidity, and fabric dyes begin to bleed.
  • If water has not been removed in a few days, fungi will begin to appear, wood floors and structures will start to warp and be rendered unsalvageable, and drywall, baseboards, and cabinets start to swell. Paint and wallpaper will begin to peel.
  • After a few weeks of water in your Charlotte home, mold will begin to damage organic materials. Affected materials will need to be properly mitigated or be disposed of for the safety of the inhabitants.

Water can cause damage very quickly, which is why it is so important to begin remediation immediately. If your Charlotte, NC, home has experienced a water disaster, remember SERVPRO® of South Mecklenburg County is here to help service and support our neighbors and friends in South Mecklenburg County. We are ready to help you make it “Like it never even happened."
