How Water Damages Your Home
The primary damage that water causes is to the materials in your home that are vulnerable to being soaked in water such as wood, sheetrock and other similar materials. The water gets inside and starts to weaken these materials which can cause them to warp or even fall apart over time.
While your wooden floors may be treated to resist water damage, the structural supports inside your walls may not be which may cause structural damage over time.
Why Address Broken Water Pipes Immediately?
There are a number of reasons why you should have your broken water pipes addressed as soon as possible. First, your water bill will skyrocket even from a short duration of having water flood into your home. However, that bill may turn out to be quite small in comparison to the potential repair bills that are caused by water damage.
While the water itself can compromise the vulnerable materials of your home, it is the development of mold in these moist areas which is the real concern. Mold eats away at the wood, sheetrock and other materials which compromises their integrity. Worse, the mold releases thousands of spores which can have a negative effect on the health of those who live inside your home.
