What can water really do?
What kind of damage can water really do?
You probably just had an amazing vacation, let's pretend Hawaii because I've always wanted to go there. You just spent two weeks in the fun and sun in Honolulu. Blissfully listening to the water as the waves crash around you. Unbeknownst to you, your house has also been listening to the steady, Drip Drip Drip of a faulty main supply line to the upstairs bathroom toilet. Two weeks of dripping water can cause quite a bit of damage to its surroundings. I visited a home today, where this exact scenario has already taken place.
Quick rundown of damages
- Bathroom Floor, wet and moldy down to the plywood flooring
- Bathroom Linen Closet / Extra Storage , Everything inside was COVERED in various molds
- Drywall, every bit of drywall and baseboards in the bathroom were wet and soggy.
- Master bedroom, Carpet and flooring all wet and moldy
- Downstairs Dining room, because of being underneath the upstairs master bathroom, it sustained water and mold damage to the ceiling, wall and flooring.
- Finished Basement, the water made it through 2 other floors and ruined the ceiling and wall underneath the dining room.
- All of the Insulation, Drywall, Flooring will need to be removed and replaced from the affected rooms.
- Mold had sprouted in just about every room, and the HVAC system was just covered in it.
Water is a force of nature
All that damage from a steady drip of water over a span of 2 weeks. Coming home from paradise, to a disaster like this is pretty heartbreaking. You will not be able to stay in your home, It could be quite hazardous to your health. The floor and walls could be structurally unsound.
