Most Common Water Damage issues at Your Property:
Storm Damage and Flash Floods:
Water damage may strike your property due to natural catastrophes such as tornadoes, hail storms, winds and heavy rains can cause harm to your roof, causing rainwater to drain directly into your home or company. Worse, severe weather can sometimes result in flash flooding, particularly if your property is located in a flood-prone zone.
Overflowing Bathtubs, Sinks, and Washing Machines:
You would be surprised to know that at times, people living in multiple story units, forget to turn the water off as they are preparing a bath and it overflows, other times washing machines fail, overflowing. These events cause flooding on the floors where these units are installed and at times they end up leaking from upstairs to the units below. These events end up flooding inside the walls, floors, and damaging drywall and ceiling as well as other home components.
Pipes and Supply Line Leaks:
The pipes on your property carry water throughout, so a leak or puncture can lead to significant damage. A leaking kitchen sink pipe might allow enough water to flow into the cabinet below it, potentially causing damage. A leaking pipe inside the walls may make things worse. A leak like this can cause significant water damage and the formation of a mold colony because the entire wall is affected. Even worse, if there is a leak in your plumbing supply line or drainage pipe in the soil beneath your concrete slab.
Frozen pipes are a common issue in the colder months that many people encounter. As the temperatures get lower, the water in poorly insulated pipes can freeze. Water expands when it freezes, damaging the water lines, creating leaky pipes, and flooding the house.
