Water damage is one of the worst things that can happen to a home, and this is because there are so many effects that go beyond that of the water damage itself. Water damage can last for a long time even after the water is gone, which is what makes it so difficult to deal with. The first thing to occur and the last thing to fix is often the appearance of mold. When moisture gets trapped under a surface, it creates the perfect breeding ground for mold and a variety of other spores.
The mold is usually black mold which can cause a number of negative effects, many of which are very harmful to one’s health. The problem with the mold is that in addition to being bad for one’s health, it is very difficult to get rid of. Even after the water has been cleared up, there are usually errant spores left that can continue to breed mold underneath the surface. In order to get rid of the mold completely, the floor usually needs to be replaced altogether.
