The Many Dangers of Water Damage
Water damage of any degree brings with it numerous health and safety concerns. These dangers are sometimes worsened because they are not obvious or they remain hidden for extensive periods. As these dangers lurk, they can build on one another, creating even more significant issues for you as a homeowner.
Typical problems that arise from water damage include loss of personal belongings, structural integrity damage, and ruined systems within your home. This might include damage to electrical wiring, leading to faulty electricity, fires, and the risk of electrocuting people who accidentally come into contact with bad wiring.
Furthermore, water damage becomes a quick catalyst for the growth of dangerous mold spores. Mold can be both toxigenic and pathogenic. Both types of mold growths can pose health risks. Lung cancer, asthma, trouble breathing, heart palpitations, dizziness, and even death can occur due to prolonged exposure to dangerous mold growths.
Water damage can also be significantly worse if it causes standing water. If you have standing water in your home, you should avoid entering it at all costs. These waters can contain bacteria and viruses, which can lead to infection, sickness, and death. Keep small children and pets away from water-damaged areas.
