FACTORS THAT PREDISPOSE ST. CHARLES TO WATER DAMAGE
The city of St.Charles is home to 70,820 residents or 29,051 households. Every day, 14,000 Americans experience a water damage emergency at home or at work. By the same logic, it follows that about 3 people experience a water damage emergency in St. Charles, Missouri every single day. According to Insurance Information Institute, about 1 in 60 insured homes has a property damage claim caused by water damage or freezing each year. The impact of water damage can be far-reaching. What can start as small water infiltration into your home can lead to full mold infestation and the need to replace expensive items such as furniture and drywall. Mold grows fastest between 77°F and 86°F when the relative humidity is above 55%. Historically, the area has a daily mean temperature of 77.8°F and the relative humidity ranges from 70-77% year-round.
Therefore locals in St. Charles should especially be wary of water intrusions because they can foster mold growth. In addition to their unpleasant musty odor, molds also pose a risk to human health. When you exclude overflowing gutters and leaky pipes, flood damage and storm damage are the most significant water-related risks American people face.
