Common Water Damage Locations

The first step of any water damage restoration job is to try and identify the source of the water damage. Otherwise, it becomes more difficult to identify all the areas that may have been affected by the water leak. To help you locate and stop the water source, we’ve compiled a list of the most likely places to find water damage.

Walls

Water damaged walls and unsightly water stains are a common problem for homeowners. This type of water damage tends to occur slowly, expanding over long periods of time. As a result, you may uncover mold growth throughout the water damage restoration process. A professional restoration company can monitor the entirety of the drying process using advanced tools and infrared imagining. This is helpful because it can help prevent secondary or structural damage.

Ceiling

Your ceiling has a variety of vulnerabilities. If your roof has been compromised, water can quickly leak through, saturating the attic as well as drywall and building structure. The ceilings of the lower stories in your home can also be damaged by upper-level plumbing leaks or flooding.

Basement

Basement water damage is an unfortunately common occurrence. Like the ceiling, the basement has many different vulnerabilities. Some potential causes include sewage backup, broken pipes and leaking washing machines.

Carpeting & Flooring

Carpet water damage and other damp flooring could be a sign of a burst pipe. All moisture has a cause, and that cause must be located and addressed before restoration begins. When you simply dry your flooring without treating the cause of the damage, you can expect the problems to reoccur.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your water damage restoration cost is completely dependent on the severity of the damage. The final price tag will be determined by a variety of factors such as: cost of cleaning, the size of the damaged area, the type of water causing the damage, the cost of labor and restoration materials. The national average water damage restoration cost is $2,580. Of course, your restoration may cost as little as $1,000 or in excess of $8,000. To put these prices in perspective, drywall that was damaged with category 1 water could cost around $2,000 to repair. By contrast, a basement flooded with category 3 water, also known as black water, may cost $7,000 to repair. The only way to get an exact cost estimate is to reach out to a water damage restoration professional who will inspect the property. Visit our costs page for a more detailed explanation.

Do you suspect mold in your home? If you’ve recently experienced water damage or even minor flooding, you should be on the lookout for mold. Any situation that creates moisture, such as spills underneath the refrigerator, leaks under sinks, and damp basements will create the ideal environment for growth. Mold needs moisture and an organic substance called cellulose to grow. Cellulose can be found in almost any building material in your home, such as wood, carpeting, furniture, drywall and even your furniture. If you cannot see the mold, but you can smell an unpleasant, musty odor, it’s likely that there is mold hiding out of sight. Visit our common areas of mold growth page to learn where mold is most likely hiding in your home.
