Does Water Damage Intensify Fire Damage?

4/11/2019 (Permalink)

A fire can cause severe damage to a residence, and water damage may result from the effort to extinguish the blaze. A fire hose is capable of dispensing hundreds of gallons of water per minute and may result in flooding in addition to fire damage. The presence of both types of damage may have an intense combined effect on a home in North Bend, WA.

What Is Combined Damage?

Fire damage may be the major problem if a fire is minor and a fire extinguisher is used. If the fire department responds and uses a fire hose to put out a fire, standing water may also be a factor.

Water is usually the secondary cause resulting from an effort to put out a fire. Water may:

• Ruin porous materials and contents
• Cause corrosion or rotting
• Increase the risk of mold growth
