The powerful element of life and death
Water is the most important element on the Earth (70% of our Planet consists of it). It makes up more than two third of our body’s weight. No one can survive without water for a long time. It is also one of the biggest problems of modern world because there is a lack of fresh water and all scientists are concerned about this fact. Without it main processes of human’s existence would be impossible. Yes, water tops the list of the most important things to keep us alive,…. but not to flood our houses.
Being so important and useful, water is also the most powerful element that causes deaths of thousands of people, ruins destinies and destroys buildings.

The same water that gives life has taken it away.
But let’s talk about disasters of less devastating level. Many things can cause the real flood in your house. For example, you may forget to close taps and leave for a long time.

Damage from water in the house

It is not just bad for the interior, but also can go deeper into the breaks or wood and with time to cause dangerous diseases of lungs, allergy and other respiratory illnesses; especially it is extremely unsafe for little kids to live in such place.
Another problem is spoilt furniture. People usually try to buy expensive tables, coaches, beds, carpets and other things and all this rich furnishing is good for nothing, staying in water for a long time.
