Take your pick of these scenarios: A) Your son forgot to mention he opened his bedroom window right before the whole family left for a two-week vacation. Fortunately, no one discovered the opening, or robbed your home while you were out of town. Unfortunately, it was repeatedly soaked by the automatic lawn sprinkler, and now your son’s bedroom is a disaster. B) The upstairs washing machine developed a problem while everyone was out of the house. For eight hours, the water ran, filled the tub, overflowed, and flowed and flowed – out the door, down the hallway, through the ceiling, into the room below and onto the porch. C) Blame the toddler and his fascination with flushing the toilet for this one. He “bye-byed” one stuffed animal too many, and the resulting overflow has created stinky carpets, a noxious odor and children who now refuse to use the “icky” potty.
What these scenarios and hundreds more similar to them share is the common theme of water where water shouldn’t be. As necessary and sustaining as water is to human life, it serves us best when it stays where we need it to be: within river banks, channeled within pipes, and inside the vessels where we tend to use it such as tubs, toilets and washing machines. Water outside of its natural or practical confines has, surprisingly, as much potential for destruction as fire. Furthermore, most of the time, it is far more subtle and insidious. When water finds its way into unexpected places within human habitation, it encourages the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew, all of which can be hazardous to the home’s inhabitants.
