Water damage can cause huge problems for homeowners, progressing until the problem is remediated. This water damage overview explains why rapid moisture cleanup is so important for homeowners.
- Reduce Structural Weaknesses: Wooden building materials and cement foundations are both vulnerable to moisture deterioration. Rot, for example, can compromise the structural integrity of support walls and beams—this deterioration can cause parts of your home to buckle and collapse. Similarly, water intrusion can cause cement foundations to weaken and warp. The foundation expansion caused by moisture will eventually lead to visible cracks in walls and ceilings. Mitigate these risk factors by remedying water damage immediately.
- Avert Mold Growth: Mold is one of the most immediate problems caused by flooding. In fact, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development reports that mold growth can begin as quickly as 48 hours after flooding occurs. Unfortunately, this mold will eventually lead to more structural issues and health risks for your family. The presence of mold can also lower your home’s resale value. Contact a mold and water remediation specialist when these issues threaten your home.
- Prevent Bacterial Infection: Not all water damage is a result of flooding or precipitation. Plumbing problems can also lead to serious water damage. Sewage backup floods the home and also exposes family members to dangerous bacteria. Addressing these issues quickly minimizes the unsanitary consequences of severe sewer flooding. Contact a restoration company as soon as a plumber has isolated and contained your leak.
