- Air contamination – Generally you will smell a strong odour if the damage has been caused by unsanitary water. This can pose a health risk for people who have pre-existing respiratory problems.
- Weakening of wood – Wooden walls, floors and ceilings can weaken, get brittle, develop discolouration and can even flake off when they have been damaged by a flood. Fungi and microbes can also occur which will create a health hazard.
- Corrosion of metal parts – Iron parts of your home, furniture and appliances will rust a lot more easier when they have become exposed to water for a long period of time. Once these start corroding they will weaken and will eventually break.
- Mold growth – Water may not look bad however, it can be the perfect environment for mold spores to activate and grow. It can also create toxins that will cause illnesses that range from simple irritations to neurological disorders.
- Malfunctioning electronics – Electronic devices can malfunction and short circuit if they have been in contact with water, even if you dry them off their internals can corrode and break down which will therefore cause failure.
- Fire and electric hazards – If water ends up in your walls, floors and ceilings there is a good chance that they will wet your electrical wires, this of course can create a number of hazards.
These are only a few of the problems that flood damage can cause so if you have noticed the problem then you should seek professional help as soon as possible.
