Unresolved Water Damage
Water has an interesting way of traveling throughout the drywall of a home. In numerous occasions homeowners believe that the only areas affected are those with visible water marks or visible water on the floor. Therefore, they refuse to grant access to other areas for inspection. That is where mold begins to grow and feeds from the moisture retained in the material. Mold can begin to grow between 24-48 hours after a material has been exposed to high levels of moisture. The mold will eventually become visible but by then the damages are more extensive to the home and it becomes a health hazard as well. It takes technicians minutes to make an assessment of the affected materials. As the saying goes "it's better to be safe than sorry."
