How mold or microbial growth can affect your health:
Bacteria, Mold and Mildew thrive in moist environments. After you have suffered some sort of water damage these organisms can grow in as little as 24 hours. There are many mold-related reactions such as immune disorders, pathogenic disease and cancer. Allergic reactions consist of headaches, confusion, asthma, diahrea, rashes, and chronic fatigue. One must also be aware that floodwaters may also be contaminated with sewage and waste which can bring an entire new element of bacteria to the show.

Direct damage to materials leading to structural instability:
- Drywall begins to fall apart
- Wood in walls and floors soak up water and becomes warped, swolled and begins to rot.
- Ceilings may start to bulge, which indicate trapped water.
- Stairs can become very hazardous as they may crack and break apart.
Everyone knows never to mix electricity and water. Make sure all electricity is turned off before entering any water damaged area as systems can short out and malfunction, causing fires and sometimes lethal shocks.
