Water damage can occur anywhere in your home or business. Although it can be difficult to detect, look for the following telltale signs.
Water spreads quickly and can be destructive if left untreated, so it’s important to address water damage immediately upon detecting it to minimize the damage. Trust us; it will save you time, money, and a lot of stress in the end.
Knowing what causes water damage can help you prevent—or at least mitigate—water damage by knowing what areas of your property are most vulnerable to it. Here’s a breakdown of the top four causes of residential and commercial water damage in Seattle.
Gutters are designed to collect and redirect water away from a building. If you have any trees on your property, your gutters will inevitably fill with leaves, twigs, grass, and even dirt. If left unchecked, this debris accumulates and forms a clog in the gutter system. The problem with this is that rainfall can’t flow through clogged gutters. When they become clogged, the water flowing through them spills over the sides to relieve the weight and pressure in the gutters. This water often seeps into the building below, creating costly water damage in your home or business.
Whether it’s flash flooding from heavy rainfall, melting snow from a recent snowstorm, or holes in the roof from high winds, various forms of severe weather can cause water damage to your property. Although the weather is out of your control, you can put preventative measures in place to protect your property from water damage.
Pipe leaks can occur below the foundation, in the walls, in the ceiling, under cabinets, and anywhere else in your home or business. Pipes can leak for a few different reasons:
Various household appliances—like dishwashers, washing machines, refrigerators, and water heaters—are connected to your plumbing system. If these appliances malfunction or the plumbing connection loosens, water will slowly leak onto the floor below and cause major damage.
Even your air conditioner can cause water damage. This HVAC appliance removes moisture from the air. If the moisture collected doesn’t drain properly, it will accumulate and begin to leak from the unit.
Water can damage everything from your walls and ceiling to your floors and furniture. No matter the location or extent of water damage on your property, our skilled technicians follow the same four-step process when performing water damage restoration services in Seattle.
