Water damage is something that unfortunately happens all over the world. With differing weather patterns and climates, it is important to know how this kind of damage can affect you in the area you’re in. Water damage is not something anyone wants, but it is vital to be educated in order to make the best decisions when a disaster situation occurs. At Sunshine Cleaning and Restoration, we have compiled a list of culprit you should watch out for.
Here are a few of the culprits behind water damage:
Some people might think, “Floods? In Arizona? No way! It’s a desert!” Although it may be true that Arizona has very high temperatures and is very dry, floods do still occur and can also be very dangerous. Flooding can affect your home or business immensely. It can cause mold growth, damage to the structure of your home, furniture & appliances. Flash floods do not always give visible signs that they are going to start. They are sudden with heavy amounts of water, along with rock and debris. Flooding doesn’t always mean that everything is knee-deep in water, but the smallest bit of water can be problematic if it’s not taken care of.
When pipes or drains are clogged or possibly blocked, flooding can take place. It’s important to keep up on plumbing maintenance if you think you may have a problem with your pipes.
When appliances don’t work properly, such as a dishwasher, washing machine or even a water heater, there can be the possibility of flooding. Be sure to carefully inspect your appliances if you suspect an issue. If there is a possibility of an issue, it is best to replace or repair the appliance.
When you get heavy rain and debris in your gutters and they don’t get cleaned out, the gutters can become clogged and cause flooding. Consider cleaning your gutters regularly and check for potential problems if it has been raining.
Sometimes, accidents just happen. You forget the bathtub is running, the sink overflows, kids put random things in the toilet that aren’t meant for a toilet and many, many other things. These can all create a flooding mess, but we are here to help.
These are just a few of the causes of water damage. Really, it can happen in so many ways. Just remember, it is better and easier to prevent water damage than it is to fix and repair it.
