Water damage is one of the most common types of property damage that we see in our line of business. Between storms, floods, leaky pipes,
snow melts, sump pump backups and a multitude
of others, there are many reasons your property
may end up affected by extreme water damage.
The most common forms of water damage are:
External structural failure
Internal appliance and plumbing failure
Let’s look at those in a little more detail.
Water Damage from External Structural Failure
As a result of heavy rains, storm surge, or flood, water can enter the property from outside. Points of access include: window seal failure, foundation cracks, and hose bib failures.
Water and Sewer Damage from Internal Appliance or Plumbing Failure
If the cause of water damage is from inside
the property, the fault usually lies with appliance
failures - such as dishwashers and washing machines.
Leaks from sinks and interior pipes are also common
weaknesses. Add to this sewer-related sources such
as toilet backups and sump pump failure, and water
damage becomes an even more serious situation
which quickly affects more than just the immediate
vicinity of the leak or overflow. If the worst happens,
our water damage restoration team will find deal with both the repair and restoration of your home.
