With winter storms in full effect this week, many homes may become susceptible to water damage. Leaks and floods can cause long-term damage if it is not treated immediately. Water damage destroys the house structure, causes mold, and produces an unpleasant odor. We at Guaranteed Plumbing & Heating, Inc. have the expertise to clean up and restore any water damage to your home. We can get rid of your water damage by remodeling your bathroom, repairing your basement, replacing flooring, and much more.


Severe water damage is basically labeled as an emergency! The longer the water sits, the worse the damage is. Our company provides around-the-clock plumbing emergency service for the Philadelphia area, which includes attending to water damage. We can have your house emptied of water in a flash with our trained personnel and quality equipment. If you realize that your home has been damaged by excessive water, don’t hesitate to call us.


It is important for you to understand the long-term effects of water damage that can affect your property. Being aware of the serious water damage that can occur to your home will help you assess the situation in a fast and effective manner if it ever happens.


These are the long-term effects of water damage if not treated promptly:


–    Erosion of drywall and wallpaper

–    Warped wood components
