KC Floods respond day or night Water Damage Repair and Restoration Flooding and odor cleanup for residential and commercial properties. Whether it is caused by a sudden flood, a burst pipe or plumbing issue, water damage escalates quickly if not addressed. If not taken care of immediately, excess water can promote electrical hazards, cause expensive damage to home and furnishings, and also lead to mold growth. In flooding, water typically spreads out and flows through the path of least resistance, especially toward substructures and lower floors. Porous materials whether wood, sheetrock, or other building materials, will soak up the water, which can even travel upward. The resulting effects can include discoloration, swelling, broken adhesive bonds, delamination (flooring separation), warping, and overall breakdown of building materials that make up your property. The more time that elapses before treatment, the greater the damage. Even if the water evaporates unassisted, it can cause damage to ceilings, walls, and content. Kansas City Flood Company fixes all these issues.
