Water Damage in Your Home Costs Thousands to Repair
Water damage is one of the worst things that can happen to your home. One of the most common ways your home becomes flooded with water is through the roof when it rains. Water damage is not an “easy fix.” It damages surfaces, and it invariably causes mold. Wood becomes warped and bowed. Porous surfaces become irreversibly damaged. With water damage, you’re looking at replacing your carpet, carpet padding, subflooring, drywall and everything else the water touched. This can cost thousands and thousands of dollars in replacement and repairs. Water will damage your roof system too. A new roof is one of the best ways to protect your home from water damage. Let’s explore why.
After any type of incident that leaves behind excessive moisture, you need to thoroughly remove all water. The longer it is allowed to collect the worse off you will be with water damage. Water can seep into hidden areas and remain there. It is nearly impossible to completely dry excessive moisture in the home without professional help, but it is absolutely necessary. Missing roof shingles, loose flashing and other roofing issues causes roof leaks. Roof replacement can help you keep water outside of your home where it belongs.
Mold In Your Home
Mold can grow in a home in as little as 48 hours. We already know the trouble with hidden water. This means you can have mold growing behind your walls in a couple of days without even knowing it. Mold will make you feel sick because your body is trying to fight it like it is a sickness. This causes your immune system to be weaker, and you will get sick from other things more easily.
