If you think about it, you’d think, “Well, of course, I’d get it don’t as soon as I can!” But the reality is that sometimes you forget, or you get to busy with other things, or you just don’t want to deal with it at the moment.

So why does timing matter? The sooner you stop the water, the less area of space is damaged. That seems simple enough. If you leave a leak going for just a day longer, think of how much more damage is going to take place in more areas than you would probably think. If the water leak is spreading over a long period of time, it can even go as far as damaging the structure of the building and that can be very costly and time-consuming.

Another big reason why timing is so important is because of mold growth. First of all, mold is just plain yucky. There are health risks when dealing with mold in the home and most of the time it is invisible in the air. Do you want to breathe in those harmful toxins? Or have your children and guests breath them in? Not only will the toxins be in the air, but because the moisture from the water doesn’t have anywhere to go, it’s going to find spots on the walls and the floors and turn to mold.
