1. Mold & Mildew
Even in a dry climate such as we have here in Phoenix, mold and mildew can be major worries. Mold and mildew grow when they have access to moisture. They are a classic issue of water damage. If mold or mildew are allowed to grow unchecked, you could be facing a massive headache and a huge repair bill.
2. Health Concerns
Not only are mold and mildew bad for your home, they are bad for your health. Mold and mildew have both been shown to degrade the air quality in your home contributing to asthma and allergy symptoms.
3. Water Damage = Fire Hazards
