Risks of Water Damage
Excess water and moisture can cause a number of problems when they are not addressed in a timely manner. They can destroy porous building materials and belongings (such as wood, drywall, flooring, furniture, electronics, etc.), and even put the structural integrity of your building at risk. Mold growth is a secondary complication that can arise when excess moisture is present, and it can lead to a number of other issues. Tackling the problem at the source in a swift and effective manner is the best way to limit the extent of the damage.
