What is Secondary Damage?

7/17/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation What is Secondary Damage? Something even as simple as a small pipe leak can cause secondary damage that could have to force you to tear out all affected cabinetry and drywall.

After water leaks or flood damage, if not properly dried and treated, a home or business can develop mold from the moisture left on: wood, tile, carpeting, windows, concrete, and/or other materials/items that were affected. Sometimes mold can grow in as little as 24-48 hours of not being dried down properly, creating secondary damage.
