You value your home and pretty much everything inside it – well you do if you’re like the vast majority of home owners. The same applies to anyone who has spent the time and effort to build a business that they’re immensely proud of because the last thing you want to see happen is your business or home to suffer. In the same breath you also don’t want anyone inside your home or business to be in any danger at all when they’re there. From a business point of view it could lead to personal injury claims that you don’t want and, in this climate, most likely can’t afford either. For home owners it means that you’re potentially putting the health and welfare of both immediate and extended family dangers at risk if your home isn’t safe.
Water damage is one of those things that usually isn’t readily apparent unless you’ve just had a burst pipe and you’re surrounded by several feet of water. Normally the problem starts off quite subtly and then becomes worse over time. In the meantime you’re looking at issues on your property like structural damage caused by on going gas leak and you also need to consider respiratory health issues because of fungal and mold growth on your property that can actually be quite serious depending on the type of mold that grows.
