Are you aware of the dangers lingering water damage may pose to you and your family? Water damage can seriously threaten not only the structural integrity of your home, but it can also pose a serious health hazard, particularly to the very young and the elderly. Growing concerns about mold over the last decade or so have highlighted the grave nature of the problem, as experts blame it for illnesses ranging from irritating allergies to serious skin, bronchial, and allergy problems.
