While you do all you can to protect your home, there are times when unexpected things happen. In many of these cases, the result is severe water damage to your home. Though you may be able to do some of the cleanup yourself, chances are there is far more damage than you realize. Since only a small amount of water getting under flooring or inside walls can lead to substantial mold growth, it’s important you hire professionals who know how to bring your home back from water damage. As for what causes water damage, here are some of the most common homeowners experience.
If a pipe starts to leak and you have no idea it is taking place, the results can be water damage you never imagined could occur in your home. Whether the pipe is in your basement or concealed within a ceiling, even a small leak can over time produce devastating results.
Broken Water Heater
While the water heater in your home probably doesn’t garner much day-to-day attention, it will get your attention immediately once it breaks and starts leaking water all over the place. Unfortunately, by the time you put a stop to the water heater leaking, the damage has already been done in regards to water seeping into every nearby crack and crevice.
Whether it is a kitchen sink, a sump pump, or worse yet a sewer backup, any of these situations can result in substantial water damage that can occur in a relatively short period of time. In addition to the water damage, the odors resulting from drain backups of any type are also something you’ll want to rid your home of as soon as possible.
