Common Causes of Water Damage in Your Home

Many things can damage your home and property, but water is the most common. The best way to prepare is to know the most likely causes of water damage in your home.


There are five places in your home that are most likely to cause water damage.

1. Air Conditioning: Without regular servicing, water can build up in air conditioning units. If it does not drain properly, leaks can damage drywall and flooring and cause mold.

2. Dishwasher: A poor seal or use of the wrong soap in the dishwasher can cause water to leak with every use.

3. Washing Machine: It is often hard to locate water leaks from washing machines. Check under and behind washing machines for water damage.

4. Leaking Pipes: You may have a leak and not know until there is a fair amount of damage. A spike in the water bill may mean you need to find a leaking pipe.

5. Clogged Drain: One clog can cause backups in drains and water damage throughout the house. Sewage water always requires professionals because of the risk of bacteria and contamination.

Water And Mold Damage – Your Need To Know

When you experience water damage in your home or business from a leaky foundation, roof leaks, burst pipes, valve failures, sewer back-up, drainage problems, or floodwater, you naturally want to get things back to normal as quickly as possible. When your home starts filling with water, it will quickly soak through walls, flooring, furniture, and anything it comes in contact with. Even if you vacuum up all the standing water, it is likely that water/contaminants have seeped into your floors, walls, cabinets, baseboards, heating/AC duct-work, and crawlspace. If not handled properly, it can quickly become a bigger problem.

If the water damage is caused by sewage or other contaminated water (to include floodwater), it has the potential to cause severe illness due to the release of dangerous bacteria and viruses.
