Water stains typically mean that water is coming into your home through the roof so if you notice them on your ceiling, you need to take action fast! Typically brown in colour, these stains are more than just an eyesore. They can cause extensive damage to your home’s structure. Additionally, they can make your family sick by reducing in-home air quality.
Every second you wait to fix your leaky roof, you become more susceptible to damp, mould and other damage. So call professionals to repair your roof today! And while you’re at it, might as well invest in roof waterproofing to prevent future incidents. Here’s how a leaky roof can put your home at risk:
Your Ceiling Might Collapse and Your Roof Structure Will Become Weak
You’ll risk injuring yourself and everyone under your roof if your ceiling were to collapse. Add to that the damage that can be done to your furniture and you’ll be spending all your savings on replacement costs.
If your roof structure is damaged, your home will become receptive to rodents and birds. These pests can do a lot more damage than you can ever imagine. And in case you didn’t know, bird droppings are toxic to humans and pets.
Excessive Moisture Causes Damp and Mould
Often, people think of mould as merely a musty smell but they couldn’t be more wrong. Mould is harmful to humans, especially those with existing health conditions. Mould spores multiply very fast and you’ll have a much bigger problem on hands if you ignore water stains and other signs of water damage in your home.
Keep your family and your home safe by taking care of water damage fast and efficiently. And if you don’t want to deal with water damage ever again, make sure you waterproof your roof.
