Common Causes of Water Damage
A flood emergency inside your home can happen at any time. Even with the best preparation, unexpected circumstances can converge and result in floods, leaks, or other forms of water intrusion. Because a large number of people will face some kind of water damage during their years as a homeowner, it can be helpful to know the most common causes.
Water Damage from Broken Pipes
Water intrusion from plumbing pipes can happen either quickly or slowly. If a pipe completely breaks or bursts, the resulting flood will be very obvious. However, water damage is also common from slow leaks, especially in places like under kitchen cabinets. The best way to protect against this kind of intrusion is to be familiar with the health of your pipes and to replace them when necessary.
Flooding from Appliance Issues
Appliances are another common cause of water damage in Redding. This is especially true of old appliances that are worn down or have been poorly maintained. Washing machines are prone to cause floods when their hoses begin to leak. To prevent this kind of water damage, homeowners should stay up-to-date on the age of appliances and regularly check for leaks around fittings and hoses.
Storms and Flooding Disasters
Natural disasters are yet another cause of water damage in the home. One of the best ways to be prepared is to have a sump pump installed if your have a basement or low-lying area in your home. Proper drainage and grading are also essential to keeping your home dry during storms.
