h2>What causes water damage?</h2>
A water damage restoration service may be required if plumbing has leaked, blocked or broken.
Leaks in pipes and appliances spread water over the floor or can drip and run down into rooms. It can even work its way down and flood the basement. For example sinks, toilets, dishwashers and washing machines can all leak. Roots, debris or freezing can cause blockages. Subsequently the water can burst out of pipes elsewhere or overflow from appliances.
Broken pipes can send large amounts of water shooting out everywhere. For example many hundreds of litres per hour.
The water can stain and damage timbers, foundations, insulation, soft furnishings, walls, flooring and electricals. Damp interiors can then go mouldy, which is a health hazard. Furthermore the health hazard is extreme if it’s sewer pipes that have leaked or burst. These situations are all emergencies that should be dealt with quickly. That’s because you will be better protected the faster it can be addressed. Factors include less exposure to health hazards, less damage and lower costs.
