How Damaging Can Water Be to Your Home?
Family and friends love to enjoy the pleasures of water together at all times of the year. Whether it be a summer day on Lake Michigan, or a ski trip to Northern Michigan. Water is something we all love in all forms. But we know that too much of it can cause problems. Water damage to your home or business needs to be remedied quickly with the least downtime to your daily business functions.
If not addressed quickly, water damage can be catastrophic to your home or business. A storm, flood, or plumbing problem can leave your home with extensive water damage. Damage can come from clogged gutters, clogged drains, exposed water supply lines, leaking water pipes, faulty appliances, and septic tank overflow.
Whether it’s from large amounts of rain, busted pipes, or clogged toilets, when water seeps into your home's infrastructure, it can become hazardous and costly. Current statistics for 2022 say that on any given day, water damage emergencies affect upwards of 14,000 people and household water damage costs $20 billion annually. (iPropertyManagement.com).
Water damage can also ruin standard house systems like electric and plumbing, resulting in thousands of dollars of remodeling if not taken care of appropriately. Mold is a secondary result of water damage inside a home. The mold that grows due to excess moisture can become a health threat to you and your loved ones causing significant respiratory issues.
