RV leaks can cause major damage.

The age and lack of care can cause the roofs of RVs to leak. Most leaks can be fixed easily if taken care of right away. If the leak is neglected, it can cause some major damage to the interior. It can cause stains on the ceiling or upholstery or could cause paneling to warp or mold. In order to fix the interior you must start with fixing the leak.

Determining where water might be coming from can go a long way in preventing further water damage to the floors. Water Damage Rescue Team crews will inspect the source of the water and stop the flow to prevent the water from causing any additional water damages.

Water allowed to sit on natural or engineered hardwood floors can cause havoc on your flooring and sub flooring. It’s important to act quickly not to allow the water damage to affect your hardwood floors

Well, the first thing Water Damage Rescue Team Crews do, is to dry out the floor surface and more importantly the subfloor. Its going to be very difficult drying the underside of all the hardwood floor boards affected, because of the waterproof nature of plywood so that the boards don’t continue to warp. In fact if you have a plywood subfloor, It’s very important to dry the floor quickly, not just to stop the warping, but also to stop the mold that my get a grip on the wood. Mold spores can be left even after the floor dries, and may cause health problems for some sensitive individuals. By removing the baseboard if you happen to have a finished ceiling below the floor, sometimes might gain access to the space between both floors, also consider cutting a neat (and repairable) square in the drywall. This is so the fans can better dry the underside of the subfloor. It would help if a few holes were drilled up into the subfloor where the leak began, to make sure a puddle of water is not sitting between the floors. It is difficult to correct the problem once water damage has occurred to your wood floors and, more likely than not, we must replace your hardwood floors if there not dried in a timely manner. Excess moisture from the flooded condition must be removed as soon as possible. If cupping of flooring is the only adverse result, drying of the floor promptly is necessary.
