The Top 5 Causes of Water Damage in the home

7/31/2017 (Permalink)

Although every water damage situation is a little different, these are the most common causes of water damage in a home that we deal with on a daily basis.

  1. Broken Pipes & Hoses: Aging pipes, washing machine hoses, ice maker supply lines are common culprits of water damage.
  2. Accidents! Usually caused by kids! Splashing water out of the bathtub and sending a toy down the toilet will wreak havoc, but will also provide a good story years down the road. 
  3. Sewer back up. This unfortunate mess is usually caused by tree roots invading and clogging drain lines in their own search for water. 
  4. Basement Humidity: The only remedy to hydrostatic pressure and aging infrastructure is to install a dehumidifier. 
  5. Flash Flooding: Mother Nature is unpredictable so it is best to purchase flood insurance if available!
