The Destructive Power of Water

Never underestimate the untold damage that water can wreak upon an innocent house. Many a house has been destroyed by water damage Utah and never lived to tell the tale. Mind you, I am not saying that houses can talk despite the oft quoted phrase “if these walls could talk.” Indeed, a careful reading of that phrase will confirm the reality of the non talking nature that all houses possess. I think it is quite clear and common knowledge to all that houses do not talk. At least they do not talk in a language which can be readily understood by the people that live and make their lives within the confines of the house’s four walls.


If I may return to the point with which I started this piece of writing, the power of water damage Utah should never, ever be underestimated. Water can cause the wood with which the four walls were constructed to rot. Water can seep into out of the way places and cause mold to grow. In some cases a flash flood can remove a house from its very foundation and deposit it somewhere down stream.
Some water damage can be repaired. Other water damage is so devastating that it cannot be repaired. And although water is often thought of as the necessary ingredient for life to exist it can also be the agent of death. In fact there is a member of the Hindu pantheon name Kali (I believe) who is the goddess of both destruction and new life. In a sense this is the way of the universe. Death clears the way for life to begin anew in the grand scheme of things. That said, most people live in a more mundane existence where if water damages their home they call a professional to come and clean up the mess.
