If you are a homeowner, you take great pride in your home looking its best. Unfortunately, when certain things happen and water damage results, your hard work may feel as if it were for naught. However, it doesn’t have to be this way. While many people may try to clean up the mess themselves, more and more people have discovered the value of hiring a water damage restoration company such as us here at Rocky Mountain Restoration. As for the leading causes of water damage that typically occurs in homes, here are a few of the most common.

Natural Disasters 
Whether it is a nearby creek or river that floods or a thunderstorm that dumps torrential rain in your yard in a matter of minutes, natural disasters are often the leading source of water damage in many homes.

Broken Water Heater
If there is one thing you do not want to find when you come home from work or awaken from a good night’s sleep, it is a water heater that broke down along the way and started leaking. Since most water heaters can contain many gallons of water, they can cause quite a bit of damage in a short period of time. Therefore, it’s always a good idea to keep your water heater in as good a condition as possible.

Leaking Pipes
While we usually take the pipes in our homes for granted most of the time, that all changes when they start leaking. If these leaks are not immediately contained, an entire room can suffer severe water damage very fast.

Sewer Backup
A disgusting mess for sure, a sewer backup will not only need to be cleaned up quickly to get everything looking good again, but also to make sure the area is once again healthy for you and your family to live. Since these backups can spread bacteria throughout an area, always rely on professionals to deal with this problem.
