So here’s the thing: Water damage is sly and sneaky. And mold is, too.
A small leak, just a drip, can become a monster that attacks your family’s, employees’ or customers’ health, as well as your finances. The thing is, that small drip could be in a wall somewhere, slowly eating away at your home or business, turning wood and other organic material into a foul paste consisting of toxic mold spores and bacteria.
Unchecked, the damage can spread filth and contamination throughout your home or business, threatening human health and even weakening the structural integrity of your property. But if it can hide so well, how can you detect and neutralize the threat of hidden water damage?
Here are a few guidelines to help reduce the risks of hidden water damage:
- Routinely inspect your plumbing anywhere it’s exposed, including crawlspaces, basements, attics and under sinks. Look for corrosion that could hint at water leaks.
- Regularly inspect your water walls for signs of water leaks, including bubbling or peeling paint, discoloration, warping or other changes.
- Routinely inspect your HVAC system, including drip pan drainage and ducts, for signs of mold.
If you find signs of water leaks or mold, call Enviocore promptly for fast, accurate mold testing. Don’t put your family’s health or your property at risk.
