Long Term Risks To Your Property
We all know the horror stories of mold in the home or workplace- but there is so much more damage that could possibly be caused by untreated water damage. Not only should you protect your property but these things could also have effects on the quality of life.
- Weaken structural integrity – Walls, Floors, and roofing can all be weakened by water which can spread to other parts of the house easily and cause more damage over time
- Exposure to chemicals – by allowing the structure of the building to break down you are possibly exposing yourself to harmful chemicals that go into building walls, floors, etc.
- Electrical problems and damage- water and electricity are not a great match and can eventually cause dangerous problems such as electrical fires or personal injury
- Furniture and personal item damage- leaving your sofas, rugs, beds, and personal belongings exposed to water damage can decrease the lifespan of your items or leave you with unpleasant lingering odors
Mold thrives in damp environments and is a great risk after experiencing water damage. Some symptoms you can experience include flu-like symptoms, headaches, nausea, cognitive issues, and more. Allergies can also be worsened in environments where water damage is present. Many times water can harbor dangerous bacteria and germs that can cause us to get sick or experience infections. All in all, the repercussions of water damage to your health is something no one should have to experience.
