In terms of sheer destructive capability, water damage can be just as bad as a full-on house fire. It can cause structural collapse, increased humidity in the home, and encourage the growth of unhealthy molds.
At its best, water damage can take the form of leaks, affecting only spots in your home and not entire sections. On the other hand, flooding—whether due to natural causes or a freak plumbing accident—can ruin your home.
Luckily, modern-day plumbing has a few tricks up its sleeve to prevent against these water damage disasters. If you haven’t taken any of these safety measures yet, it might be time to call a plumber in Naples, FL.
