Drastic Results from Water Damage to Your Texas House

4/21/2023 (Permalink)


One of the worst things that a homeowner can find themselves grappling with is a flood. In the aftermath of a flood, the property becomes susceptible to extensive water damage that can adversely impact your home. Water damage becomes progressively worse with each passing minute, and can give rise to the following problems:

  • mold and mildew proliferation in your walls, furnishings, and carpets
  • the growth of microorganisms that cause rotting in wood and fabric
  • odors that become progressively worse/permanent
  • the drywall becomes warped, soaked, and unusable
  • wood and furniture become malformed and starts to smell
  • metal rusts and starts to tarnish

Once these problems begin to surface, your insurance claim will often rise in cost. Additionally, your chance of recovering your home and restoring its original value can decrease drastically. It's also important to note that water damage can make your home difficult or impossible to live in if fungi begin to grow. The fungi show up as black or green mold and can appear wherever moisture or water has accumulated. More problems can surface including buckling floors, wooden door casings that swell up, wallpaper that peels, and adhesives that lose their bond with ceramic tile. Some other challenges that can occur include the staining of fabric, failure of electronic components, and peeling of paint. Home occupants are also at risk of contaminants in the water and air. Finally, exposure to contaminants can pose a variety of health effects.
