Category : Golden Glove Clean
Golden Glove understands that water damage is a serious issue that needs to be addressed immediately. That is why we offer restoration whether it is from a broken pipe, floor, or a horrible leak that has been slowly leaking for a long period of time.
Yes, there are a few small things you can do on your own like opening the window to help get the moisture out of the air, but it is extremely important to call a professional to assess your water damage. Following is a detailed outline of the two issues that can destroy your home if not properly addressed in a timely manner.
- Structural Damage- This is the largest problem a homeowner can encounter if they have water damage. When your home is filled with a large amount of water, the structure will weaken. If you allow water to sit on your floors or within walls for multiple days, you could really be faced with some serious structural issues, such as walls caving in, floors uprooting themselves, or ceilings falling in on you and your loved ones.
- Health Hazards- If your home is allowed to remain wet or damp, mold and mildew will start to form. Your walls and floors that have only had water on them a few hours can start growing unpleasant and potentially harmful mold. If this isn’t addressed and corrected properly you and your family could develop serious health issues. Some of the most common issues include respiratory problems, throat irritation, a rash, redness of the eyes, and many more health complications of varying degree.
