Many homeowners are often shocked to find out that there is a connection between their mounting health issues and water leaks in their homes, as well as damp carpets. A damp carpet can either result from a water leak in the house, spills, or poorly dried carpets when cleaning. These carpets become breeding grounds for mould, and the mould spores are a health hazard.
Some homeowners also have to deal with burst Flexi hoses and other internal sources that lead to water damage or external causes like floods and storms. Flood Services Sunshine Coast is a team of experts that helps people keep their homes dry and free of mould.
