Water is one of the main enemies of a house, regardless of the materials used in its construction. Indeed, humidity strongly weakens the structure of the building. In addition to this weakening, water infiltration can also lead to negative consequences on the health of the inhabitants of the house. In view of the first signs of infiltration, it is advisable to call in qualified professionals for a thorough diagnosis to find solutions to solve the problem. Fissure-Expert accompanies you properly in this process.
Weakening the structure of your home
Humidity is a factor that strongly impacts the structure of a building. Indeed, water quickly attacks construction and finishing materials such as concrete, steel, wood, tiles, etc. This humidity will lead, little by little, to the degradation of the concrete, will rot the wood and in order to corrode the reinforcements of the house. This results in a radical weakening of the entire structure of the house. Water will therefore not only affect the aesthetics of your home, but also lead to a decrease in the structural strength of the building.
Thus, a home that is regularly plagued by water leaks can collapse over the years if you do not take any corrective action. In addition, humidity also promotes the appearance of mold and moss in your building. These organisms are also at the root of the weakening of the structure of your home and are also the cause of many diseases. In addition, water infiltration caused by a rupture of the pipes leads to water damage.
When moisture condenses inside your building, the steam created leads to the degradation of the siding and coatings of the house. The most sensitive and attacked part in construction is the roof. Indeed, it is the area that is affected by a good part of the water due to bad weather. When the waterproofing is not developed at this level, water can quickly destroy the frame of your home and lead to even more terrible consequences. Finally, water infiltration causes visible consequences such as:
- Blisters on the walls;
- Detachments of coatings;
- Degradation and collapse of ceiling;
- Cracks in the walls;
You must therefore make a diagnosis and make appropriate repairs as soon as the first observations of humidity in your home. To do this, Fissure-Expert accompanies you effectively.
Impact on health
Apart from the consequences created on the structure of your home, water infiltration also has negative impacts on health. Water infiltration does not directly affect the health of the inhabitants. However, it will lead to the appearance of certain factors that lead to the appearance of more or less serious diseases. Mold, for example, a direct consequence of moisture, causes pollution of the ambient air in your building. By polluting the air, these organisms will gradually cause lung diseases on the inhabitants of the house. Water infiltration is therefore at the root of certain diseases such as asthma, chronic bronchitis, various allergies and respiratory diseases, etc. The consequences of humidity in your home can be more dangerous for people who have fragile bronchi (the elderly, babies, etc.).
