This proactive planning gives you peace of mind and control in these sometimes inevitable disasters. We will discuss the various elements that play a hand in property floods.
Types of Water Damage
Frozen pipes can be a common occurrence during Washington and Idaho’s winter months. Below freezing temperatures can cause the water within the pipelines to expand, which leads to the development of tiny cracks.
The ideal way to prevent water from freezing is to keep faucets at a slow, consistent drip. The consistent water flow will prevent the water from forming a hard block within the water line.
With gusty winds, powerful storms can cause damage to the roof or cracks within the windows. These new entry points can provide an easy entrance for outside water.
Toilets, dishwashers, washing machines and other appliances in your home use water lines and It is quite common for a hose to slip or a connection to fail. When this happens, water damage can start in any part of your home where the appliance faulted and spread very quickly throughout your home.
The most common type of water damage is when a drain pipe becomes clogged. Water will quickly back up the line and then settle into the drain pan until it overflows from the pan and continues to flood all areas around the pan. Other HVAC malfunction issues that cause water damage include, a blocked pump tube, the indoor coil becomes frozen, broken pipe fittings or a faulty evaporator coil.
Failed Water Lines
Pipelines can become brittle as they age, creating fragility in the structure. One tiny crack can allow for hundreds of gallons of water damage to your property.
Sump Pump Failure
There are many reasons why a sump pump could fail. Power outages, frozen or clogged sump pump pipes, jammed switches, lack of maintenance or old age can all be contributing factors that lead to unmitigated water.
Sewage water is classified as the most severe type of water damage. This damage is most commonly caused by clogs in the sewer line, overgrown tree roots or a damaged sewer pipe. Most sewer water damage can create hazardous conditions within the property that can harm your health and your property.
Interior Sprinkler Failure
Maintenance mishaps, freezing temperatures or small cracks in the water lines can all lead to failing sprinkler lines. If the sprinkler system is accidentally triggered, this can cause an overwhelming disaster to your space and to your personal belongings. However, since this is clean water, a certified water restoration contractor can help mitigate the water and restore much of the property to its original state.
