Heavy Rain Expected in San Diego
Rain is very important for the natural environment but it can become a problem if it gets into your home. One of the most common sources of water damage in a home is rain and it can get into your home in so many ways. San Diego is expecting HEAVY Rain, which brings the threat of flooding.
Rain water can spread within a home by getting absorbed into porous building materials and if the problem is not dealt with right away, the damage can become extensive. The following are some of the ways rain can cause damage in your home:
- Roof Leaks: If there is any damage to the roof, rain water can leak into the attic or upper floors and cause structural damage to the walls and ceilings.
- Flooding: Excessive rain can lead to flooding in your home which causes extensive damage and brings in microorganisms that can be harmful to your health.
- Mold: Rainy or wet conditions contribute to mold growth because mold needs moisture to thrive. Mold not only causes serious property damage, but can also cause health effects.
