Water is an insidious danger to your home, able to make its way in through the smallest of vulnerabilities and do incredible damage before any apparent signs show. To prevent this type of unexpected damage, choose Innovative Construction Solutions to perform water infiltration testing at your Naples, FL, property.
The infiltration of water into your home can occur in a plethora of ways. Any break, tiny or significant, can allow water to come in and cause damage over time. Yet, all too often, we go about our daily lives, oblivious to the issue, allowing it to continue until the results are catastrophic. Regular inspections can prevent this result.
Water Infiltration Hazards
Water infiltration has real hazards, from cosmetic damage to severe issues with structural integrity and health risks to occupants. For example, wallpaper and carpet damage are minor issues, but when water issues continue over long periods, the slab could crack, the frame could rot, and toxic mold could grow.
The water itself isn’t the only issue with water infiltration. The vapor and moisture within a room cause a high humidity level that is problematic for the structure’s strength and creates unhealthy air.
If you’re concerned that you may have an issue with water infiltration, you can identify a few obvious signals that problems exist. The first is a foul smell that may accompany the growth of mold. Secondly, the home floor may become unstable, and water infiltration is often the cause.
Water and sewer lines breaking or backing up are yet another source of water infiltration. Should this issue occur, you’ll know it. You’ll smell it and see it.
Water infiltration from the exterior is also possible. Without appropriate, up-kept waterproofing, moisture will make its way through your basement or subfloor.
