Water damage from roof leaks in San Diego homes and buildings is the major cause of a multitude of health risks that may lead to diseases, such as asthma, respiratory infections, bronchitis, eczema and others, says leading local water damage remediation expert and head of Gold Coast Flood Restorations, Joe Colombo. 

"Some of these illnesses can cause difficulty in breathing, plus coughing and wheezing," says Colombo. 

He believes that water damage left untreated and not handled promptly and properly can lead to bacteria and fungus, which can quickly colonize and grow, posing the above mentioned health issues. 

According to Colombo, San Diego roof leak water damage remediation can be a very complicated task and it requires a lot of skill to make sure that the job is properly taken care of. Noting that there are a number of steps to be taken to ensure that all water is removed and that all contaminated areas are remediated, Colombo says it is important that affected individuals never leave water damaged areas in their homes untreated, as it can cause a plethora of health risks. 

Following are some of the health risks that Colombo says can arise if water damage areas in the home go untreated.

"If you have allergies, you may also have a lot of more difficulties when encountering untreated roof leak water damage areas," notes Colombo, a leading San Diego water damage expert. 

"Untreated water damaged areas are a breeding ground for a lot of different harmful types of bacteria. Molds and other nasty microbes will grow in the damaged are only just a few days after the damage occurs," he adds.
