Most Common Reasons For Water Damage In Your Property


Storm Damage and Flash Floods

Water damage may strike your property due to natural catastrophes such as tornadoes, hurricanes, and other phenomena. Strong winds and heavy rains can cause harm to your roof, causing rainwater to drain directly into your home or business. Worse, severe weather can sometimes result in flash flooding, particularly if your property is located in a flood-prone zone. Read our guide for what to do when flash floods strike.

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, leading to overflows. Other times, appliances like washing machines fail, causing water to spill out. These events end up flooding inside the walls, floors, and damaging drywall and ceiling materials as well as other home components. Head over to our blog to find out what actions to take if your appliances malfunction and overflow.

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 leak like this can cause significant water damage and the formation of a mold colony, as dry damp spaces are prime breeding grounds for mold spores. Learn how to detect if there is a leak leading to water damage within your walls.

Frozen Pipes

Frozen pipes are a common issue in the colder months that encounter. As the temperatures get lower, the water in pipes that are not well insulated can freeze. Water expands when it freezes, which damages the water lines, creating leaky pipes, and flooding the house. Read our tips on how to prevent 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. When clogged drains are not addressed promptly, they may easily back up and cause flooding and damage to your home’s interior. An inefficient, obstructed, damaged, or failing sump pump will leave your basement dealing 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 in an effort 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, flooding many floors at times. Read our list of facts about home sprinkler systems.

Roof Leaks

The physical integrity of your roof is vital to maintaining conditions on the inside of your home. Over time, natural wear and tear will cause roofs to weaken and leaks to form. When the roof is breached, precipitation 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 buildup of humidity may lead to mold growth. Find out what actions you should take if you discover a leak in your roof.

Ice Dams

Ice dams form on roofs during a cycle of snow precipitating, melting, then refreezing. This is caused by the heat of the attic rising upwards and causing the frozen snow to melt into liquid water. The liquid water runs off towards the edges of the roof but refreezes in the sub-freezing temperatures, resulting in a buildup of ice along the edges of the roof. This damming effect will then cause snow and ice to build up and put your roof in major jeopardy of being overloaded and damaged. Read our guide towards the most effective means of preventing ice dams on your roof.
