The Consequences Of Indoor Flooding

Floods can cause many complications at home.  The most common problem that arises from flooding is mold.  The humidity in the water causes mold spores in your walls. If not treated immediately, over time they can spread throughout the walls.  Not only does mold look unpleasant at first sight, but it also presents health threats for you and your family.  Mold exposure may aggravate allergies and asthma symptoms for people with these health problems.   

Mold can also be extremely dangerous for people with any kind of respiratory disease.  Additionally, sitting water can cause rotting of wood, rusting of steel and discoloration of walls.  All of these problems can present further deteriorating problems for your home that your insurance may or not cover.  The longer you wait to treat these problems the worse and bigger the problems will become.  Usually these problems will spread throughout the walls and even make their way to the roof.  water damaged carpet getting water extraction from a professional vacuum
