Roof Leak Caused Fort Myers Water Damage
Sometimes the cause of a leak is exactly what you think it would come from, a roof leak.
An ongoing problem may also include mold damage.
In the case for this client, the roof leak wasn’t the only issue. Once our water damage technicians were able to find the source, they also found a nasty mold problem as well. Mold is tricky as growth can start in as little as 48 hours after a water leak has started. Mold just needs 2 things, an organic surface to grow on (wood or drywall) and moisture. In this case, the roof leak was left undetected and mold had already began to develop and grow in all the wet places. Mold can be a costly problem if it was negligently left to grow as insurance companies sometimes will not cover mold if the original source of the leak was known about previously and not repaired in a timely manner. That’s why it’s important to fix any leaks or moisture problems as soon as you see them.
