What is water damage?
Water damage refers to the situations in which walls, doors, staircases, furniture, or any other infrastructure of a structure is compromised or damaged due to excess and prolonged exposure to water, humidity, or moisture.
Water damage may result in a myriad of consequences, varying in their levels of severity. While some may include nothing but a subtle, unpleasant odor, others may pose actual physical threats as well as health risks.
Staircases, for example, overly exposed to humidity may weaken to the point of collapsing under a person’s weight. Walls that have been exposed to water over long periods of time may also be in danger of collapsing and putting inhabitants of such a structure in great danger.
Doors suffering water damages may be rendered useless, while other water damages may cause serious health risks, such as allergies and respiratory illnesses caused by certain types of mold.
