Mold growth due to water damage
December 15, 2021

Living is not possible without water. However, the same natural element can cause lasting damage to your property. While you may already know about the potential water damage in case of severe natural disasters, such as floods and heavy downpours, did you know that even minor leakages can damage your property?

Let’s look at how leakages can contribute to moisture issues in your home that can lead to damage to your property. 

Leakages Lead to Infiltration Through the Porous Walls 

The walls in your home are porous, making it easier for the water to seep through the walls in case of a leakage. When a plumbing fixture is leaking, the water migrates from warm moist areas to cooler and drier spaces; hence, you can see damp patches on the walls that indicate a leakage behind your wall. 

Vertical Infiltration of Moisture Through the Walls 

In case of a leakage, the moisture can infiltrate vertically up to 1.5 meters. It is particularly a concern when there is leakage around the foundation walls as the vertical infiltration can weaken the foundations of your property. 

The Damage Worsens With Condensation 

The moisture issue in your home that leakages may originally cause tends to worsen due to condensation. An average family of three can produce up to 12 liters of water vapors every day due to activities like showering, drying clothes, and cooking. In case of a leakage, condensation can significantly increase the moisture issue in your home. 

If you are concerned about moisture issues in your home due to leakages leading to mold and mildew, it's important to fix the leakages first. But it is equally critical to get in touch with a mold remediation service provider such as Green Stone Energy. We offer mold remediation services so you can give a fresh start to your home.
