Many don’t understand that just a little water can wreck their homes and personal property. Water is quite destructive. When it gets inside, it can lead to huge problems like extensive damage, structural issues, and mold growth. So, it’s vital to know where to look for issues and stop water damage in your home or business.

If your property in the Sugar Land area suffers from water damage due to floods, burst pipes, sewage backups, leaky fixtures, or any other water-related issues, contact the skilled professionals at PuroClean of Sugar Land South. Our team is available round the clock, 24/7, to deliver top-notch water removal services.

Most Sugar Land property owners have not encountered water damage within their residences or commercial spaces. However, statistics indicate that approximately 1 in every 55 homes will grapple with water damage annually. We frequently receive calls from homeowners facing the challenge of wet or flooded floors, which may include soaked carpets, tiles, or wood flooring. Often, this happens because of freezing temperatures, leaking pipes or appliances, aging water heaters, clogged air conditioning systems, or even natural disasters.

Most Common Reasons For Water Damage In Your Property

Storm Damage and Flash Floods

Water damage may strike your property in Sugar Land due to natural catastrophes such as tornadoes, hurricanes, etc. Strong 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, mainly if your property is in a flood-prone zone. Read our guide for what to do when flash floods strike.

Overflowing Bathtubs, Sinks, and Washing Machines

It may come as a surprise that, on occasion, residents in multi-story units unintentionally leave the water running while preparing a bath, resulting in an overflow. Likewise, washing machine malfunctions can lead to the same. Such incidents can cause flooding within the floors of the units and, at times, may even seep downward, affecting units below. This flooding can extend beyond floors and walls, causing harm to drywall, ceilings, and other home components. For guidance on what steps to take when faced with a washing machine overflow, visit our blog.

Pipes and Supply Line Leaks

The network of pipes running through your property is crucial in distributing water, but a leak or puncture can unleash havoc. Imagine a kitchen sink pipe quietly leaking, allowing a steady trickle into the cabinet below, potentially causing harm. However, when a pipe starts leaking within your walls, the situation can escalate quickly. Such leaks can result in not only significant water damage but also create the perfect environment for mold to thrive since the entire wall becomes saturated. And if you’re unlucky enough to have a pipe leak buried beneath a concrete slab, you’re in trouble. Learn how to detect if there is a leak leading to water damage within your walls here.

Frozen Pipes

We have had many events where people call PuroClean of Sugar Land South when their pipes freeze. Frozen pipes are a common issue in the colder months that our area encounters. As the temperatures get lower, the water in poorly insulated pipes can freeze. Water expands when it freezes, which damages the water lines, creating leaky pipes and flooding the house. Read our tips on preventing pipes from freezing, and find tips about winter storm safety for homeowners.

Dangers of Not Resolving Water Damage

Blocked Drains and Sump Pumps

Hair, grease accumulation, toiletries, dirt, and other foreign objects can obstruct the drainpipe and prevent regular drainage. Not promptly addressing clogged drains may easily back up and cause flooding and damage to your home’s interior. A blocked or failing sump pump will leave your basement with large quantities of water that cannot be drained. Being unable to evacuate the water can lead to costly flood damage. Here are some tips to help maintain your sump pump.

Extinguishing a Fire

Many people wouldn’t think of it, but a common side-effect of fire is dealing with heavy water damage. First Responders and emergency sprinkler systems douse the entirety of the property under considerable amounts of water to stop the fire. We also have had many events where people looking for a place to hang their clothes use the pipes for the sprinkler system, which triggers the sprinklers, causing flooding. Read our list of facts about home sprinkler systems.

Roof Leaks

The physical integrity of your roof is vital. Over time, natural wear and tear will cause roofs to weaken and leaks to form. When the roof is breached, water will enter your home and begin to cause damage in its wake. If the water damage is not addressed within 24-48 hours after the intrusion, the standing water and humidity buildup may lead to mold growth. Find out what actions you should take if you discover a leak in your roof.

Ice Dams

During the winter in Sugar Land, ice dams can form on roofs when snow melts and refreezes. This is caused by your attic’s heat rising upwards and driving the frozen snow to dissolve into water. The water runs off towards the roof’s edges, then refreezes, resulting in ice buildup. This damming effect will then cause snow and ice to build up and put your roof in significant jeopardy of being overloaded and damaged. Read our guide towards the most effective means of preventing ice dams on your roof.
