After these air pockets become flattened, then insulation becomes inactive. Further, a complete replacement of insulation is very necessary to prevent high utility bills and heat loss.

  1. Fire and slip hazards

Water and oil cannot mix, likewise, water and electricity-it can create fire hazards while water can impact the electricity system. While water starts leaking into the roofing system, it can engage the essential wiring to power the building. After it happens, exposed wiring can provide the fire ignition for starting. On the other hand, when water starts leaking, then it flows to other places of the building. After the water leakage, it can create puddles on the building floor.
