Windows can leak due to construction defects, poorly made windows and due to strong winds during a rainstorm. They can also develop moisture problems due to excessive condensation, especially during the cold winter months.
When a window leaks or has a moisture problem due to condensation, moisture can build up and begin to rot the window and areas around it. This is often first noticed on the window sill and threshold. If left long enough, it could also result in structural damage.
Another major issue is the growth of mold. This may appear as a discoloration or the mold may be clearly visible. For windows with major leaks, mold growth may be present in the wall cavities around the leaking window. “Windows that allow water to enter the outside envelop of a building or have significant condensation issues need to be addressed to prevent water staining, structural issues and mold growth,” said Chris Heller with FastMoldRemoval.com. “In some cases, it only takes mold 24 to 48 hours to begin to grow on wet building materials. The mold will eventually begin to release spores into the air that can cause allergies, trigger asthma attacks in sensitive individuals and some types can even cause infections in people with a weakened immune system.”
