By now, you should be aware of the dangers of mold, as well as the many areas of your home water damage can affect. However, water damage presents a number of potential dangers to your home, especially when it’s not caught right away. Water damage tends to spread elsewhere when not promptly treated. What starts as a simple leak in your bathroom may end up affecting the structure surrounding it. The longer water damage is left untreated, the more susceptible your home is to further damage. In these cases, drywall can swell and disintegrate, while wood starts to warp and split.
There’s an expression that goes, “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.” But sometimes there’s a fire and you can’t see the smoke. It’s a mistake to only use your eyes when looking for a fire. It’s also a mistake to only use your nose when looking for water damage. Here at Rightway Waterproofing Co., we’ve been diagnosing and fixing water damage for over 20 years.
