Mold: Moist areas are a breeding ground for mold and even a small leak can be the breeding grounds for the spread of this very harmful substance. Left unchecked, mold presents dangers to your home and the health of all those who live inside. Mold will eat away at the vulnerable materials in your house that will eventually cause structural damage. However, more importantly the spores from the mold will infect you and your family causing sickness or worse.
