Common Causes of Water Damage

Whether you’ve discovered water flooding from the washing machine or a burst pipe in the bathroom, we know there’s no such thing as a typical water emergency. Here are some common causes of water damage.

Overflowing plumbing systems (sinks, toilets, showers, bathtubs)

Whether it’s due to human error or faulty piping, we often see homes that have been flooded by an overflowing plumbing fixture. This type of flooding can quickly seep into your flooring and walls, often spreading into bedrooms or living room areas.

Sewage backup

For many homeowners, a sewer backup is a nightmare come true. Sewer backups are biological hazards and expose you and members of your home to bacteria and microbes that can cause serious illness. If this incident occurs, it’s imperative that you leave the area for your safety.

Groundwater flooding and storm damage

Although Los Angeles County does not have a rainy season, the rain always seems to catch us off guard. Due to the infrequent rains, we may not always know about the areas that water can enter the home, which may lead to water leaks from the roof, walls, or entryways.

Leaky pipes

Leaky pipes can leak under your floorboards or in hard to find places, making them difficult to detect until it’s too late. Often a leaky pipe that has been dripping for a long time can lead to mold and hazardous particles.

If you think you’re experiencing any of the above, please call us for a free, no-commitment necessary, assessment of your home. It’s always better to be safe rather than sorry! A water damage restoration company will not only be able to help restore your home but will also specialize in helping you find areas of vulnerability that could potentially pose a problem to you in the future.
