Inordinate periods of rain, flooding, snow, ice damage and intense heat can cause building damage. Water has a way of working its way into the surfaces and uneven parts of your home. As water naturally pools and evaporates however, it can cause tremendous damage.
For roofs, standing water will degrade trusses and asphalt shingles. With walls, water damage is often seen as drip staining, or drywall and wallpaper swelling. In basements, water will crack foundations, ruin electrical conduit pathways, interfere with furnaces and leave mineral deposits on plumbing and permanent surfaces. Above all, water damage mostly results in the proliferation of molds, mildews and other toxic residues which can compromise the overall integrity of your structure and the health of anyone living within.
The proper precautions can be taken to ensure water does not leech into the interior of a structure thereby creating the perfect environment for mold and other harsh forms of water damage. 911
