How Water Damage Affects Your Home

Water is necessary for life. We use it for so many things - cleaning, cooking, and washing, just to name a few of it’s uses. As important as it is though, water can also be a force of devastation. There are numerous ways that water can destroy your home and we’re discussing a few of them below.

Flooding

This type of disaster is one of the most destructive types of water damage because not only will it soak your entire home, but it can also flow with a force that could destroy your belongings. What makes it worse is that flooding is not relegated to homes on low ground or near bodies of water, flooding can happen virtually anywhere. When a home is flooded, water accumulates, penetrating carpet, furniture, molding, and even solid cement.

Mold

Wherever there is a sustained presence of water, mold is inevitably nearby. It doesn't take very long for the spores of mold to attach. Within one day, mold can begin to cover the floor and walls of your home. The more warmth and moisture that is present, the faster it will grow spreading allergens, irritants, and even toxins which all thrive in the presence of mold. Depending on the type of mold that is growing, you could be left with respiratory issues or infections.
