When water is allowed to stand, it creates the perfect environment for mold and mildew to grow. A wide range of microscopic organisms thrive in the environment provided by the debris.
As wood and other organic fibers begin to degrade, the results make perfect food for the tiniest organisms lurking in the corners of your home. While these bacterial nuisances are generally not a problem, if you have a damp area with fresh food like that, you have provided the perfect new home for a colony.
This is one of the reasons it is so important that you take care of water damage as soon as you discover it. Sometimes, when folks find a moldy area in the basement or back room somewhere, the inclination can be to close the door and forget about it. However, the mold will continue to grow and the degradation of your organic building materials will follow suit.
The very structure of your home can be at risk in this situation. While it would take significant water and time to create a catastrophe, there are many scenarios before that you should avoid.
The foundation of your home can crack, which is very expensive to repair. The structural supports all the way around can become damaged. Your flooring, carpets, furniture, walls and more can all suffer from unchecked water damage.
If you have clean standing water in your home and the burst pipe has been shut off, you can attempt to mop up some of the excess. Likewise, you can use towels, sandbags or other methods to lessen spreading.

You know what is in the septic tank and you don't want to know what could be contaminating water that has traveled down your city streets.
