Effects of Water Damage
Mold continues to grow, thriving until your vehicle receives proper RV water damage repair. This can pose many dangers, particularly to the health of those staying in the RV. Water damage can frequently lead to black mold growth. This incredibly toxic mold causes numerous symptoms, and the longer you are exposed the worse they become. Early stages include headaches and coughing, later stages include permanent memory loss, blindness, and even death.
Delamination happens when water gets into the layers of the wood products. It separates the material from the glue creating bubbles or ripples on the exterior surface. This may not be immediately apparent as there are many different structural components to your RV. Delamination can be a major issue though, pairing with wood rot to seriously compromise the structure of your vehicle. Without proper RV water damage repair, your vehicle may not provide the manufacturer's intended level of protection, resulting in excessive injury to property as well as person.
While the vast majority of vehicles don’t include wood in their material count, many RVs do. Water can be particularly damaging to wood in an RV, causing structural problems throughout. Wood is often used in roofing, siding, and framing. Water damage affects the integrity of your RV. It should be professionally repaired as soon as possible.
