Water Damage and its sources
Regardless of its root cause, water damage comes in many forms and is difficult to predict. Water damage can be difficult to spot and can be caused by factors outside of your control. This is why it is important to be able to recognize potential sources of water damage and take preventative before it becomes a big problem. While also being able to recognize signs of water damage that has already occurred.
Water damage boils down to one simple factor, water getting in places that it has no business being. Since a lot of building materials are made to withstand prolonged exposure to water, water damage can be ubiquitous inside a property.
The source of water can be caused by several separate issues. Plumbing issues is a big one, burst/leaky pipes can spill water from inside the home. Water seepage from the outdoors, whether it be rainwater finding its way inside from crevices in the roof, to groundwater flooding a basement through cracks in the foundation. It can usually be separated into water from interior or exterior sources.
The sheer number of ways that water can find its way into the more delicate parts of your home may seem overwhelming, but making a habit of inspecting crucial areas of the building is a great way to prevent problems before they start.
Make sure to call professionals like us to inspect your plumbing every once in a while, especially if you live in an older building, as old aging plumbing is generally the most problematic. Look around for signs of leaks, discolored walls, streaks, or even signs of mold growth. Make sure to take proper winter precautions to ensure that frozen pipes do not ruin your plumbing.
Outside the building, inspect areas that you suspect may be allowing water to enter. Usually improperly sealed windows, doors, damaged roofs, and gutters. Also make sure to get the foundation of the building inspected at some point, cracks in the foundation could be allowing groundwater in without you even knowing it.
