Do you remember the time that your dishwasher broke, leaving a flood on your kitchen floor? You fixed that problem and mopped up the mess and probably didn’t give it another thought. You most likely didn’t care about the water that seeped behind the cabinet and soaked the floor in an area that you couldn’t see or reach. It would eventually dry out on its own. Right? Of course it would but what you may not know is how that moisture in a damp, dark place (like the flooring and cabinet around your dishwasher), is likely to damage building structures including flooring, drywall, moldings and cabinets. Failure to properly dry out these structures and building materials right away can not only produce costly water damage later on, it has probably seeded the growth of toxic mold.
Mold spores are efficiently and quickly distributed throughout your house. In as little as 48-72 hours after a water damage or high humidity event, what started as a little localized dishwasher flood has the potential to turn into a very big water damage and mold problem. All of this could be prevented had you called on a licensed and certified mold removal company right away for a water damage and mold inspection and the ability to start structural drying immediately.
Maybe you still don’t care about the mold and water damage you cannot see…
But perhaps you do care that you and your family are sick a lot more often. Even your dog and cat are coughing, sneezing and not acting like their usual frisky selves. It’s a fact that mold can produce serious allergic symptoms and make asthma worse. People and pets most vulnerable are those with respiratory problems, children and the elderly. Besides more respiratory problems, headaches and not feeling good, doctor visits, veterinary bills, poor work performance and missed work have costly consequences. Okay, maybe you’re still not convinced.
Let’s say the time comes to sell your home. You have a prospective buyer who wants a home inspection.
The inspection reveals that your house has a serious mold problem and damaged building structures. The only course of action (if you want to sell your home) is a major mold remediation from a mold removal company that can effectively get rid of all the mold safely, repair and replace damaged building structures, and perform restoration services. And to think that this major problem might have been a minimal expense had you requested a free inspection from iMold when it first occurred. So what will you do now that you understand water damage and mold a lot better?
