Mold Growth

When water seeps into the walls and foundations of your property, it creates an environment that promotes mold and mildew growth. Within hours of water damage, microscopic amounts of mold can begin to grow and spread, having the potential to become visible as soon as one or two weeks later. Carpets and drywall are particularly susceptible to water damage and can quickly emit a musty odor and eventually visible signs of mold and mildew. Mold can lead to significant health risks for those living in the affected area. Living with mold in your home can cause respiratory disorders, skin irritations, and more. For businesses, continuing operations with mold in or around your property can significantly impact your business and even result in government-mandated closure.

Structural Damage

Untreated water damage can cause serious structural damage to buildings and homes. The longer water sits, the more harm it can do. Water not removed quickly from a structure can lead to wood rot, metal fixtures corrosion, and concrete and brick disintegration.  Plus, moisture causes drywall and flooring to warp, swell, or even break apart. Unseen effects, such as rusting pipes or electrical shorts due to water infiltration, are common causes of structural failure in flooded buildings. The building can become unstable, unsafe, or uninhabitable without quick removal of standing water and proper drying out of affected areas.


The humidity in the environment from the water damage provides an ideal space for pests to live and thrive. Many bugs carry infectious diseases that are hazardous to human health, so it is important to take action quickly if any signs of pest infestation are present. By proactively mitigating water damage and addressing pest issues early on, homeowners can help protect their homes from further destruction.

Property Depreciation

Water damage can significantly impact the property value of your home or commercial property. This is because water damage can cause problems with the home’s structural integrity, how it looks, and how it smells. When left untreated, water damage leaves clear traces, including wood rot, floor wrapping, permanent stains, and mildew. All these issues together reduce the overall resale value of a property and thus lead to property depreciation.
