How Water Damage Impacts a Home and What Can Be Saved

An extraordinary amount of Americans are currently dealing with water damage and the aftermath of flooding. Texas and Louisiana still have a very long way to go as the damage was tremendous and is still just being assessed. Later Florida, and now Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands are dealing with catastrophic loss, not to mention many of our neighbors in the Caribbean.

As the Washington Post writes:

The damage to the houses is going to be tremendous,” said Jean-Pierre Bardet, a geotechnical engineer and dean of engineering at the University of Miami. Thousands are beyond repair.

So what does water — not a small leak but a major deluge — do to a house?

The article then goes on to discuss the step-by-step affect that water damage has on a home along with visuals and tips as to what can and can’t be saved.
