Common Areas That Have Water Damage in a Home
Water damage is one of the most common forms of property damage. By taking the right precautionary steps, you can prevent the need for emergency water damage restoration services in your home or apartment. Find out where water damage can occur in your home:
Laundry Room. Washing machines are convenient, but they are the most common causes of residential water damage. A failing supply hose can leak and leave you with standing water or mold growth. Check out our post on how to avoid washing machine disasters.
Kitchen. Refrigerators, freezers, and dishwashers can break down, an excess of food in the garbage disposal can cause flooding, and kitchen sink pipes can leak unexpectedly. Make sure to maintain a regular maintenance schedule and follow the best practices for mold prevention in the kitchen.
Bathroom. Beyond broken pipes, caulking and faulty appliance parts, water damage can easily be caused by human error and forgetfulness. Flooding can occur by simply forgetting to turn off the faucet of a plugged tub or sink.
Basement. The basement is typically where multiple water sources and pipes are centralized. This creates a hub for potential water issues.
Roof/Attic. Roof or attic leaks are often caused by broken flashing. Roof flashing helps prevent water penetration; however, exposure to too much damage can weaken its durability.
