When water damage or a flood hits home, it’s more than a bad day—it’s an outright emergency. It can be hard to know what to do in a situation like that, or who to call, mostly if you’ve been displaced and your home isn’t livable at the moment. Of course, if the destruction is severe, you want to get it taken care of as soon as possible. If you need help with water and flood damage restoration in Winchester, Hometown Restoration can help.

Even if your home isn’t severely damaged, it’s important to get the damage to your home taken care of as soon as possible, because of the prevalence of mold. Mold is present in any home or structure, but after water damage, or in places where there is a lot of moisture, mold can grow. It’s usually invisible to the naked eye, so you don’t know it’s there. Over time, breathing in this mold can be toxic, and it can cause grave health problems and respiratory issues. If your home is cleaned quickly and restored, you don’t have to worry about toxic mold growth.

Water damage can get brought on for many reasons, and you don’t have to live in a flood zone to have a flood. Although floods can be caused by rising waters, storm surges, and heavy rains, water damage can also be caused by malfunctioning appliances, such as dishwashers or hot water heaters, septic tanks, groundwater seepage, or faulty plumbing.
