Don’t Leave Anything to Chance

mansionNothing in this world could possibly be more unsightly than a watermark on the ceiling. Most people run straight to their local hardware store to purchase the latest and the greatest thing to take care of their newly found eyesore, but rarely do they ever consider that they could have bigger issues than that ugly brown stain on the ceiling. Chances are that if you have a visible water mark on your ceiling, you have an invisible water leak somewhere on your roof or within the infrastructure of your home. Leaks can be the result of a multitude of different things like wind damage from a storm that shifted a shingle, and caused a leak in the roof, a damaged or broken water pipe, or a leaky shower or toilet.

When you start noticing that you have water spots on your ceiling, the best thing that you can do for yourself, your family and the integrity of your home is to call in a professional to help you find the origin of the leak as quickly as you can and repair it. Often times the water spot on the ceiling is not necessarily where the leak is, as the leak’s location is actually somewhere else, and the brown stain is where the water has pooled. Look, when it comes to water damage, you don’t ever want to leave anything to chance, and you can be certain that the owners of all 14 Secret and Hidden Mansions of the Super Rich leave nothing to chance when it comes to their fabulous homes.

Besides the fact that water damage leaves behind all of those horrible stains, there are much bigger issues to consider especially if you or a family member suffers from allergies, or some other type of respiratory disorder. Water in walls, ceilings, and in the wooden structures of a home is a haven for mold and mildew. Believe it or not, if the conditions are right, and in a humid atmosphere, mold can  begin it’s infiltration of a home in as little as 24 hours. The health risk associated with mold can be devastating, and exposure can cause dizziness, breathing obstruction, vertigo, diarrhea and nausea. In more severe cases of mold infestation, long term exposure and ingestion of mold can cause infectious diseases like typhoid fever, cholera, and even death. Protect the integrity of your home’s infrastructure and keep your family healthy and safe by taking a proactive approach when it comes to dealing with a leak in your home.
