The Aftermath of Water Damage: Mold

The Aftermath of Water Damage

Water damage can develop at any time for a variety of reasons. It can occur because of something as simple as a washing machine hose leak or a broken pipe. It can also happen for less obvious reasons, like clogged gutters that overflow and cause water to flow to the base of your home and into your basement.

Whatever the cause, water damage that is not addressed properly can create a much bigger problem: mold. Molds do more than create unsightly splotches on your walls and ceilings. They also cause other problems that include:

  • Health issues – Mold in your home can trigger a number of health problems. These include allergic reactions that can result in rashes, respiratory ailments, and sinus infections. There are also more serious illnesses that can be attributed to specific kinds of molds, including certain types of cancer.
  • Structural damage – Molds feed on organic materials and can slowly eat away at porous parts of your home like wooden support beams or sheetrock. When left unchecked, the structural integrity of your home may be compromised.
