Problems Caused by Untreated Water Damage

Some people mistakenly believe that because water dries up and “goes away” eventually that the damage it causes can be ignored. Thus, there are people who have lived with water stained walls, carpets etc. for month or even years. What these people don’t realize is that left untreated, water damage can bring with it a whole host of problems. Let’s take a quick look at why leaving water damage untreated is a horrible idea.

Clean Water Damage, Dirty Water Damage, and Black Water Damage

First, let us be clear: All sources of water are not the same. There are several kinds of water thus the damage caused by each is different. Clean water is water that is free of microorganisms that can cause allergies or infection in people. However, simply because it is free of contaminants does not mean that its harmless. Clean water, as it the case with the others kinds of water, can cause the growth of mold and mildew. Once this occurs, a professional will often be needed to address the issue before it spreads and becomes a health threat.

On the other hand, dirty water is water that contains hazardous contaminants including certain microorganisms that can pose a threat to human health. The sources of dirty water include toilet water, sump pump run off, etc. The conditions this kind of water damage can cause include bronchial asthma, allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis, allergic fungal sinusitis, etc. This kind of water and the damage caused by it must be removed by professionals who know what they are doing such as our water and storm damage restoration experts. They can locate the source of the damage and remove it as a hazard to your family.

Finally, black water is water than contains harmful contaminants including microorganisms, sewage, and human or chemical waste. Problems caused by black water include mold, microorganisms, and toxins from waste materials all of which can result in a wide range of allergic reactions. The damage caused by this kind of water must be addressed by professionals.

Finally, all types of water can cause other problems for homeowners including structural damage to walls and floors, plumbing problems, insect infestation, etc. This is why it is never a good decision to ignore the damage that comes in the wake of a flood or storm. All kinds of water damage should be addressed immediately before it becomes a major problem.
