Living in New Jersey, it's inevitable that there will be some sort of water event (groundwater, hurricane, nor'easter, etc.) at some point during the year. Depending on your actual location, and how much water is flowing and how fast and/or how forcefully, water damage can begin occurring almost immediately.
The danger is the longer water remains, the more time it has to cause even further damage. It doesn’t take long for stagnant water can become a breeding ground for mold, bacteria, insects, or other contaminants.
