The Hidden Dangers of Water Damage

Water damage is more harmful to your building and health than you think!

Homeowners should never ignore water damage. While water damage may seem innocuous, it actually has hidden dangers that can be hazardous to your health and property. Whether your water damage is due to a plumbing issue, flooding, leak, or other problem – it’s essential to address water damage immediately and rectify it. If you’re one of those homeowners who would rather pretend that water damage didn’t occur instead of addressing it, it’s time to face the music and understand the hidden dangers associated with water damage.

Water Damage Can Cause Mold & Mildew

Did you know that water damage can lead to mold and mildew developing in your home? If you let water damage sit for an extended period, you might end up with mold and mildew developing. Mold and mildew are both equally harmful to your health, so it’s important to ensure that you clean up water damage immediately. That’s why North Arundel Contracting provides water damage remediation and clean-up services to help homeowners keep their homes safe.

Electrical Damage

Water damage can cause electrical damage within your home, which is incredibly hazardous to any individual that enters your property. For example, flooding in your basement with electronics plugged into them can fry your electronics and is a HUGE safety risk for getting electrocuted. Never enter a flooded area in your home. It’s essential to always contact emergency services at North Arundel Contracting for assistance. In the event of a severe flooding emergency, contact 911. 

Structural Damage

Leaving water damage in your house can cause irreparable structural damage or damage that can ultimately lead to structural damage when unaddressed. Since signs of structural damage can be difficult to identify with an untrained eye, your home may be at risk for structural issues that could be incredibly dangerous for anyone within the home. Contact North Arundel Contracting immediately for any water damage issues you may face!
