Plumbing Leak Water Damage Restoration

 

Your residential or commercial property’s water system is one of the things that you should routinely check for damage. Leaks and pipe bursts can result in abnormally high water bills and water damage to your building. If you suspect plumbing leaks and damage in your home or workplace, contact Restoration Renegades immediately for a quick fix.

 

Water pipes may look durable, airtight and watertight on the surface but they can be damaged by excessive pressure and shock. Construction-related activities can damage water lines, resulting in hard-to-control gushes that can flood your property in a hurry.

 

Changes in water chemistry can also corrode the insides of pipes. When this happens, pinhole leaks can develop, wasting away water and creating damp spaces in areas of your building where water shouldn’t intrude. This can inflict  water damage to walls, floors and ceilings for months on end before you finally notice the problem and do something about it. Leaks can also pave the way for the contamination of your water supply, dropping its quality and making it a health risk for your structure’s occupants.

 

Water Damage from Plumbing Leaks

 

While the prospect of water intruding your property seems more like a nuisance than a crisis, it’s actually a very serious matter that requires quick and decisive action. Water damage is a progressive problem: the more you wait on it, the worse it gets. Here are some of the issues you’re looking at when you let water have its way on your property:

 

  • Destruction of the Structure’s Permanent Parts – Water can corrode metals and weaken wood. Most homes rely heavily on these two principal materials along with concrete. When water damage sets in, you could be looking at costly reconstruction work soon.
  • Mold growth – Moisture and organic matter are the only prerequisites for mold to grow. When water intrusion happens, mold can thrive undetected indoors until it forms colonies. The colonies then release new spores to the air, which can cause skin and respiratory irritations on people. In some bad cases, mold can turn black and toxic. The toxins they create can cause neurological ailments that are difficult to treat and diagnose.
  • Air quality issues – Hidden pockets of water can make the air in your home or workplace musty and unpleasant. This can add to people’s stress levels, making them more fatigued than they should be and more susceptible to illness.
  • Fire hazard creation – When water from leaking g water lines seep into areas where electrical wiring runs, watch out. Any openings in the wire’s insulation can make contact with water, creating sparks and possibly causing a fire.
  • Damage to carpets and rugs – Water from pipes that are leaking under your floors can surface up, but stay concealed if you have rugs and carpets covering your crawl areas. Water weakens the backings of these floor coverings, making them more susceptible to wear and tear. It can also make your carpets a perfect breeding ground for germs, fungi and dust mites.

If you have water damage caused by any type of plumbing leak, please contact your preferred company now.

Water Damage from Appliances

Any appliances such as washing machines, dishwashers, water heaters or any others utilizing water, should be examined on an annual basis. If left unchecked, a slow leak or drip could eventually lead to a much bigger problem, potentially leading to mold infestation or household flooding, causing destruction and water damages in your home.

Water Damage from Heating and A/C Care

Make sure your A/C and heater units are serviced annually. Check the drip pan to make sure it is not cracked and leaking. Change the filters monthly and rinse the unit a couple of times per year to keep it clean and free of debris. If not properly maintained, there is a potential for major water damage, causing expensive water damage repair to your home.

Water Damage from Burst Water Pipes

Dropping winter temperatures cause extensive water damage throughout. Every year during harsh freezing weather, phones at restoration companies ring off the hook. Customers call to report frozen pipes, leaks and floods in their homes, as well as businesses. Property loss can easily occur when water pipes freeze and break, causing damage to walls, ceilings, floors, furniture and other possessions. Even a small crack in your water pipe can leak enough water to flood your home. In fact, in just one day, 250 gallons of water can be discharged from a pipe crack as small as 1/8 inch. So, it is imperative to be proactive and take action to protect your home.
