Does Water Damage Get Worse Over Time?
Yes, if initial signs of water damage aren't dealt with promptly, water damage can get worse. Water damage should be addressed in the earliest possible stages to minimize impact. Hazards also increase with time.
Unchecked and unaddressed leaks can cause pipes to sprout new leaks. Over time, this can result in burst and rusty pipes.
Furthermore, ceiling damage can get worse if those roof leaks aren't properly addressed. Just placing a bucket under those drips won't actually fix the issue.
If water damage has gotten out of control, our Yuba City water damage restoration professionals are here to help.
