Water is often vital to health, there is no doubt about it. When it is in excess it can be risky for the human body. But when it comes to the health of the home, water in any case is harmful, of that there is no doubt.
After we start to take care of our house, because we build it to our liking, it is very hard to observe that it is losing that magic that we were printing and that it was, little by little, adapting to us.
While the crime of damaging our homes can come from anywhere. Water is the worst of all, it attacks without mercy and, moreover, when it unites with time is unforgiving. As soon as you let more time pass, like everything else, the harder recovery becomes.
It all starts with a drop, a leak, a leak. There are already bigger things like breaking a pipe that can make your home a wrecked ship. In that case, the rush is an irremediable reality that attentive with the structure that we create to our liking.
Better safe than shipwrecked
The imminent appearance of water has a high degree of concern for any homeowner, not only in aesthetic terms, but also in economic terms. In simple terms a house in poor condition lowers profitability.
There are always good professionals who can repair in depth but that kind of thing also affects the pocket. With regard to protection, as we said in previous post, it is best to always prevent.
The shipwreck may not be so serious when we tackle things in time. Watch out against time, against the pocket, against our beloved house and like any relationship you have to be very alert to anything that happens around to prevent the evil is greater.
Time is an enemy
The seconds, the minutes and the hours play in our against in the terrain of house when it is allied with the water. The risk increases as he passes, but for those who have not yet suffered damage in their own home, the prudence to win the game is to know what happens in each of the stages.
In the first few minutes, not to say seconds, if it is a slight issue, the moisture will create spots on the walls extending to the places where the moisture recrudes. A leak because of a broken pipe can make a mess of you without even realizing it, even taking it to other rooms.
Over time, with the hours, the walls begin to possess a little characteristic swelling, especially if they are made of wood, and begin to have a slightly strong musty smell.
If you recognize the smell of moist wood with the passage of the days you have a serious problem. The wood does not have enough stability and can endanger the entire electrical system by creating ills at higher levels such as fires or the loss of appliances.
There is a bigger problem
Well we can think that we will not reach the consequence of the days and months, much less of the years. However, after a week, just a week or so, mold can take over our home and not only make our home damaged but much worse than the health of our family is at greater risk.
You have to be alert to any signal however small, to know how capable we are of being able to solve the faults on our own or leave it in the hands of professionals.
