Attics and basements are great storage areas but can also create quite the problem if they are not checked on a regular basis. A lot of people use their attics and basements strictly for storage. This can be a problem if the area is not visited often. Water damages can turn into a huge mess if not found in a timely manner.

Water Damages

Water damages to your attic are generally spotted before basements. Your attic is connected directly to your ceiling. If you have a roof or pipe leak, you will see water stains forming on your ceiling. Your basement will sit in water until you eventually check. If your basement has water damages, it could quickly turn into a larger problem, including structural rot, mold growth, and flooding.

Mold Growth

Mold growth is a natural part of nature, but you should never have excess mold growth on your property. Mold growth that starts showing as mold stains is already a huge problem. An overgrowth of mold not only causes damages to the structure of your property, but mold is hazardous to your health. Mold can make you extremely ill. If you see mold stains, it is crucial that you call a professional for mold remediation.

Ceiling Damages

Leaks in your attic can cause ceiling damages. If you have water stains, you are not far from having mold growth and stains. Your ceiling will need to be replaced if you have water damages. This can be extremely costly.
