What Causes Water Damage?
Though a basement flood might be one of the first things that comes to mind, water damage can happen in many ways, such as:
- Plumbing leaks
- Pipe bursts
- Water heater malfunction
- Appliance leaks
- Roof damage
- Gutter clogs
- Sump pump failures
- HVAC condensation
- Foundation cracks
- Water supply line leaks
- Drain blockages
- Heavy rainfall
- Severe weather
Of course, this list is by no means exhaustive. Sometimes, you might not notice that there’s a hidden leak until the situation has become severe. Other instances could be coming home from vacation to a pipe burst that soaked through floors. Maybe a storm brought torrential rain and winds, tearing shingles away from the roof and leaving your home exposed. No matter how you ended up with water damage, don’t hesitate to reach out for help. Our emergency services are available 24/7, which means that people will be there to answer your call and dispatch a crew to begin an assessment. If your home has been damaged and needs security, we will tarp the roof and board up any open windows, doors, or walls to keep out the elements during restoration.
