When you have water damage due to flooding and/or plumbing issues, it can cause problems of high risk. The excess of water can represent electrical hazards or even the growth of hazardous mold. In Georgia and other States, it has been found that mold can be associated with all sorts of health problems like pneumonia, asthma attacks, allergic reactions, or even more severe issues.
