Water damage is one of the leading causes of property loss in the United States and can happen to anyone. Water damage can occur from leaky or burst pipes to the washing machine, hot water heater, toilet, refrigerator, shower, or sink. They can also happen with a leak under the slab or a roof leak. Whatever the cause, untreated water damage can result in massive expenses and headaches for homeowners. Many homeowners are not aware of just how damaging household disasters involving water can be. Simply fixing a leak or the source of the water is not enough to resolve any unforeseen issues. Water can cause degradation of household building materials, which can also compromise structural integrity, which often results in a higher price tag down the road. For many people, a home is the most significant investment they will make. Homeowners must protect their investment and call in an expert at the first sign of water damage. Calling a certified water damage restoration expert is the safest way to achieve restoration after a disaster has occurred. Do not take chances with your home or your health; call in an expert. It might just be the most important call you ever make.
Water damage poses numerous health risks. One common risk associated with water damage, especially in unseen locations, is the growth of toxic mold. Countless strains of mold can grow in affected areas and pose serious health risks. Many short-term effects are quite unpleasant such as fatigue, coughing, and rashes. The long-term effects of mold can be far more frightening such as several different cancers and severe, possibly life-threatening infections.
