TSC Restoration realizes that most homeowners experience some type of water issue in their homes at one time or another. Listed below are some of the most common reasons for home water damage issues. Many of these items require simple maintenance to avoid:
One of the most common causes of water damage is broken pipes. When water in pipes freezes and expands old pipes and taps can break. Even a small leak can do extensive damage over time. Faulty foundations or homes built near coastal regions are at risk for foundation drainage issues. The home’s foundation should be on sturdy, concrete pile. Another cause of water damage is a plugged drainage system. This issue may arise from rain leaking from gutter downspouts, a blocked passage to the sewer line, or even poor lawn drainage such as poorly done trenches or channel drains. Check your gutters for clogs or blockage to prevent water from building up. Also check your gutters regularly. Without a gutter, or with a defective or clogged gutter, water will simply fall next to the house and form a pool near the foundation. Water heater failure is another leading cause of water damage.Inspect your water heater at least once a year. Leaks can develop slowly and destroy a heater from the outside.Be aware of shrubs and trees seeking moisture that may try to make their way into sewer line cracks, causing damage through sewer backup.
Reminder: With any type of water damage in the home drying the affected areas within three days or less will help prevent the growth of toxic mold.
