Water is the most destructive substance to an indoor environment in the long-term. It can cause the premises and any items inside to deteriorate rapidly. This can escalate to a much more serious problem when the water is unsanitary or cleaning services are delayed. A fast response is the key to eliminating such events, ideally within the first 24-48 hours. Any longer than this and the water can begin to evaporate and be absorbed by anything else that might be near it, including any part of the building. This results in secondary damage, and creates an ideal environment for mould to colonise.
At VIP we pride ourselves on getting to the site and addressing the problem as quickly as possible, before any further deterioration can occur. This reduces the cost of insurance and limits the damage, saving you time and money.
