What is Secondary Damage? How Does is affect you?

Secondary damage is additional damage that occurs because of the original loss.  A speedy response to the original damage, coupled with professional restoration practices, greatly limits, and may even eliminate, secondary damages from taking place.

Common Types of Secondary Damage

Additional secondary damages that may arise from this original water damage could include odor within the building, or worse yet, depending on the amount of time lapsed, serious structural damages, such as rotting of floors.

What does Secondary damage mean for you?

Secondary damages can have many implications: increased stress and worry, increased financial burden, more time needed for remediation and reconstruction work needed, and the list goes on.  Taking care of an issue before additional damages develop is always the best plan of action when it comes to cleanup and restoration services. SERVPRO of Fullerton Placentia is here to help assist you with all your water damage needs.
