Lack Of Insulation Can Lead To Water Damage In Your Louisville Home
Inadequate Insulation Can Cause Water-Damaged Louisville Attics
With the winter season now fully upon the Louisville area, the homeowners work to prepare their homes for icy conditions and snowfall expected throughout the coming months. While a lack of home insulation might cause you to have a higher heating bill than you might like, you might also get surprised to learn about how it can also lead to conditions like water damage for your residence. Your attic is particularly susceptible to failing insulation that leads to water penetration and moisture damages.
With water damage in your Louisville attic, you run the risk of allowing secondary effects to occur such as mold growth beyond the persistent threat of structural degradation. Our professionals can help you to overcome any of the obstacles that you face in recovering your home from attic moisture and water penetration, but it begins with the homeowner recognizing the problem from its symptoms.
Since most homeowners do not regularly enter their attic space to assess risks and potential damages, it often falls to that same homeowner to notice changes in the ceiling material, walls, and other structural elements that could indicate the presence of water in the space above that floor of your home. Often by the time that occupants have noticed a change in construction materials, the problem has become widespread in the space above the ceiling. Our SERVPRO team can assess the situation and provide emergency board up services to prevent further penetration from the vulnerable points in the roof until they can get appropriately reconstructed in the immediate future.
Our technicians can then set up our high-powered air movers and industrial-strength dehumidifiers to begin pulling moisture out of the area as quickly as possible. If mold damage has already begun, we have tactics and equipment designed to remove mold colonies and work to prevent the spread of active mold spores until the restoration process completes.
Inadequate insulation in your attic space could allow moisture to penetrate through your ceiling when hot spots present themselves. Whenever you notice moisture and water damage from your attic space, give our SERVPRO of Lafayette / Louisville rapid response team a call at (303) 604-6607.
