Happy Easter! Ensure a safe reunion with proper Water Damage inspection

4/7/2022 (Permalink)

Life can be extremely unbearable without water. Despite all its life-giving merits, water can be a profoundly destructive force of nature. When ranking all the potential disasters that could affect your property, water damage takes the top spot. Water damage destroys buildings on multiple levels. When it creeps into your property, it could result in floor warping, discoloring painted walls, and lead to mold formation. Even worse, water damage that is not addressed on time via water damage restoration can enfeeble any building. Still, the damage is deceptively costly in terms of property destruction and restoration. Let’s look at some of the common causes of water damage and how to manage it.

Blocked Drains

The drains in your bathtub and kitchen sink clog for several reasons. Grease build-up, dirt, toiletries, and grease could hinder the normal drainage in the drainpipe. When not dealt with promptly, its air could ultimately result in flooding and damage to your valuables.

Adverse Weather

Hurricanes, thunderstorms, and other natural disasters do not occur daily, but when they do, it makes your building and property susceptible to water damage. Heavy downpours and strong winds can damage your roof, releasing a considerable amount of water into your business or house. Adverse weather can also cause flash flooding, particularly when your property is in a flood-prone region.

Washing machine water supply line leak

The water supply lines in your washing machine are always under constant pressure. If the lines are not made of braided stainless steel, there is a need to worry. Also, the issue will be if your machine has PVC supply lines as they can easily wear out and then burst. This means that the whole laundry room will be flooded within minutes if the water source is not shut off in time.

To ensure that your home or business is water damage free, it is important to reach out to your local restoration company, like us here at SERVPRO of Torrance. Our experts will assess your structure and recommend the necessary measures to renovate and repair areas that could lead to disasters.
