The Danger of Water Damage
In not so lucky cases, you might not be as fortunate to catch the water damages as quickly. If a pipe bursts while you are at work, or rain gets through your leaky roof while you are asleep, the water will have a chance to accumulate and sit in your home for hours without your knowledge. This is dangerous for many reasons, including the possibility of mold formation and the gradual breakdown of your house’s structure. Mold will grow in damp, dark areas, so water sitting under your dishwasher from a burst pipe is a breeding ground for mold. Over time, the mold will cause health issues for you and your family. After sitting around for a while, water will seep into wood and other materials that make up your home. These water molecules will weaken the materials it comes in contact with, and this can be incredibly damaging to its overall structure and foundation. For these reasons, it is essential that you call ServiceMaster of the Upstate immediately when you notice water damage in your home.
