The consequences of water damage include mold growth. Mould is a microscopic fungus typically found in damp areas. Its primary job is to decompose dead organic matter.
Mould has a musty smell and presents as black, green, brown, or grey spores.
Mold growth is dangerous and it isn’t something that you want growing in your house since it can pose a health risk. If you’re fit and healthy you might not be affected by the presence of mold.
People who are more sensitive to allergies or have existing health conditions like asthma are more likely to be affected, as well as babies and the elderly. Exposure typically occurs during the inhalation of mold spores released when the mold is disturbed. Symptoms of mold exposure include sinus congestion, headaches, rashes, sore throats, coughing, and other aches and pains.
Other than health risks, you risk the safety of your family. Water that enters your roof will eventually cause your wooden roof trusses to rot, thus weakening its structure. Roof repairs are expensive, even more so roof replacements.
All this might be avoided with roof waterproofing. Waterproofing is the process of making your roof or structure water-resistant so that it continues to be relatively unaffected by water. Your roof will also be resistant to the intrusion of water under specified conditions.
The team here offers an extensive range of waterproofing services such as torch-on waterproofing, polyurethane, balcony sealing, flashings and parapets, custom box gutters, retaining walls, and valleys.
