Do you have a leaky roof?

leaky roof San Diego CAIf you have water stains that extend across ceilings or run down walls, the cause is probably a roof leak. Those signs are rather obvious, but what other signs should you look for to prevent a major water damage disaster?

The sooner you can address a leaky roof, the easier (and cheaper) it will be to fix. Waiting until you can actually see water coming through your roof is waiting way too long. It’s especially important to keep an eye out for signs after a storm. Here are some of the first things to look for that might indicate you have a roof leak.

Missing or damaged shingles. It’s a good idea to inspect your roof periodically. If you spot missing or damaged shingles, this is an obvious entrance point for water, which can rot the wood sheathing underneath and can lead to extremely costly repairs. Get the shingles repaired or replaced as soon as possible.
Issues with flashing. Flashing (the material, usually metal, that covers the joints on your roof where water would otherwise get in) is a common source of leaks. Look for corroded spots, small holes, or signs of rust. There may also be places where the flashing is coming loose and allowing water to stream in.
Problems with the ceiling. The first visible sign of leaks on the inside of your home will often be on the ceiling. Any sagging, bubbles, or soft places should be investigated right away. You might notice peeling paint or discolored spots, too.
Problems with walls. Like the ceiling, water damage often takes the form of peeling paint or discolored spots. You might see moisture marks, or gray, yellow, or brown stains. Drywall may also come undone in places.
Mold. When leaks go undetected for a long time, they are very likely to cause mold in your home. This can cause symptoms like sore throat, itchy skin, and coughing in you or your family members, so it’s a good idea to have a mold inspection performed if one or more people in your household are having these symptoms. After the mold is removed, the leak should be found and addressed.
Signs in the attic. If you have an attic that you can access, go there and look for signs. If you have a leaky roof, they’ll likely be pretty obvious. You might see water stains, discolorations, or even moldy areas.
Take quick action when you spot signs that may indicate a leaky roof. If you’re handy and you feel comfortable with DIY projects, you can try to fix small issues (like a damaged shingle) yourself. For larger issues or when you can’t figure out the cause of the leak, call in a professional.

Here are 4 surprising facts about mold that we came across on an interesting blog from RMR Mold Solutions
www.rmrmoldproducts.com/blogs/news/4-strange-facts-about-mold


1. McDonald's food is mold-proof. It turns out that even mold has some standards when it comes to food. As all too many home and business owners know, mold is capable of thriving on virtually all types of material--from wood, to metal, to drywall, and, of course, on many foods. One thing that mold simply will not consume, however, is McDonald's food. Some experiments have shown that even after many years of being left out in the open, McDonalds burgers will not develop mold.



Now, to be fair, it should be pointed out that this is not due to an overabundance of chemicals, as some critics of fast food have claimed. Instead, it is simply because McDonald's burgers are very thin, giving them a high ration of surface area to volume. This means that their burgers dry out very quickly, thus removing one of the most important elements required in order for mold to grow: water.



2. Mold is bleach-proof. Many people believe the common myth that applying bleach to mold is enough to kill it. Logically, this idea seems to make sense. Bleach is a very harsh chemical that is often used to kill potentially dangerous organic substances. And, in fact, it is true that mold growing on the smoothest of surfaces, such as a flat sheet of metal, is susceptible to being killed by bleach.



However, in most real world scenarios, mold manages to penetrate and permeate the substances on which it has grown. For example, mold growing on wood or drywall will permeate the pores of that material deeply enough that bleach will not kill all of it. Although the bleach may appear to do some good, the mold will quickly return. This is exactly why investing in a specially designed mold removal product such as the RMR Botanical mold killer is always advisable.



3. Mold has been used in biological warfare. Most people understand that mold can be very harmful to human health. However, the exact extent to which mold can damage the respiratory and nervous system sometimes goes unappreciated. It is worth noting, for example, that mold has been used in the development of several compounds use in biological warfare. The mold that is generally used for such compounds is the T2 mycotoxin, which, disturbingly can be found in many homes across the United States.



4. Christmas mold? If you experience allergies around Christmas time, it could be your Christmas tree that is making you sick. Although many people do not realize it, as Christmas trees begin to break down they become the perfect host for mold--and, as we all know, mold can spark allergic symptoms.
