Water Damage Both Real and Symbolic
Water carries with it a rich symbolic legacy that is as old as mankind itself. When a person is submerged in the waters of baptism he emerges cleansed of sin and a new person. In addition to the cleansing properties of water they are also metaphorically connected with birth. Women speak of their water breaking immediately before a baby begins its short but arduous journey through the birth canal. Anyone who has had the opportunity to witness a birth can attest that water is present in abundance. Water in this context seems to be a positive force however it is quite the opposite when viewed within the context of water damage Utah to a home or other structure.
When a home is damaged by water quick action is required. The homeowner must contact their insurance carrier as well as coordinating contractors to assess the damage and then to clean it up. All this required action is very much rooted in the requirements of the physical worlds and very far removed from the realm of the symbolic discussed in the previous paragraph. It is interesting to speculate and philosophize upon the nexus between these two different but mysteriously connected subjects.
On the one hand water damage Utah to a house or structure is a physical event. On the other hand the symbolic cleansing power of water which washes away the old order in favor of the new seems to be an event on the level of the spiritual. Yet both perspectives describe the same event and both descriptions happen simultaneously. The nexus of course is water which obeys the laws of fluid dynamics independently and seemingly without thought or compassion towards the plight of the humans whose houses and structures it damages. These are weighty issues indeed and their settlement is well outside the scope of a three hundred to five hundred word article.
