Remember the last big rainstorm? You know, the one that reminded you that your home isn't as waterproof as you thought? We rarely think about how leak proof our roof, walls, and foundation are until there is a problem. Then, the rain stops, the water dries up, and we forget about the problem until next time. In the case of expensive fixes, property owners will sometimes perform temporary repairs or take the "wait and see" approach.
This winter, El Nino is supposed to bring heavy precipitation and warmer than average temperatures to the United States. Higher than normal amounts of water and mild temperatures create the perfect environment for water damage and mold growth. Since water always takes the path of least resistance, you can expect to find water damage in places that are usually unaffected by winter storms. Often, people will choose to live with a leaky roof or basement because they believe it is just a part of living where they do. When this happens, what they don't know may hurt them. Recurring water damage can compromise the structural integrity of a building and even expose the inhabitants to mold.
