Some Common Causes of Water Damage

10/3/2023 (Permalink)

Listed below are some of the main causes of water damage in a home:

Appliance malfunction-

            Some appliances that regularly malfunction include washing machines, refrigerators, and dishwashers. All three of these common household machines use water and leak on occasions, so it is good to be on the lookout to make sure they aren’t leaking. To prevent water damage from these appliances, inspect the area around these machines at least every month and be sure to keep up the maintenance of all household machines.

Leaky pipes/ plumbing valves-

            When a pipe starts to leak or break you may not always notice it right away. Sometimes a break results in a slow leak that eventually causes extensive water damage to your property and belongings. This problem may not seem very serious at first but can lead to major issues down the road. When you suspect something is wrong pay attention to these 7 signs. Changes in water pressure, changes of water color, sewage smell, puddles under sinks, hearing constant water, pipes making noises, and spikes in the water bill.

Roofing Leaks-

            Water damage from roof leaks can cause all sorts of problems if you don’t spot the issue soon enough. Some problems include mold, rotted framing, destroyed insulation and damaged ceilings. Some signs to look for are changes to flooring, walls, or ceiling.
