What Causes Home Water Damage?
Is your home or business suffering from water damage? Unless you're walking through puddles and struggling with bubbled ceilings, you might not be sure. However, there are a few common signs and symptoms of water damage.
Being familiar with the causes and the signs could help you avoid many of the more severe consequences of water damage. After all, water damage restoration services are often more affordable when the damage is minimal.
There are dozens of things that can cause interior water damage. There are also a few things that can contribute to exterior water damage, such as clogged gutters.
That said, the three most common culprits behind home water damage are:
- Leaky Pipes
- AC Condensation
- Extreme Weather
Let's explore these causes in greater detail to understand why they happen and how you can avoid them. After all, the best water damage remediation tactic is water damage prevention.
Your home's walls hide quite a few things. For one, they help keep water pipes hidden and protected. However, they can leak or burst, causing significant water damage.
Leaky or burst pipes tend to be the most common cause of water damage. Major home appliances connected to your home's water supply can also leak and cause interior puddling, mold, and mildew.
But one of the positive aspects of repairing a leaky pipe is that it's impossible to miss. If your home has water damage because of a leaky pipe, you'll know about it right away.
This instant diagnosis could help you seek immediate repair and remediation services. Still, it's a great idea to routinely check your pipes for leaks and signs of damage.
Hurricanes, Floods and Tornadoes
Hurricanes, flash floods, and tornadoes can all contribute to water damage problems. Any weather event involving intense amounts of rain or wind can contribute to water damage. This can very likely lead to flooded basements.
Homeowners living in areas prone to earthquakes and wildfires may also be at risk of water damage. Strong earthquakes can damage water pipes, causing them to burst or leak.
Wildfire heat can cause water heaters to explode, expelling massive amounts of heated water throughout the home. Still, water damage is only one of the many types of property destruction these natural disasters inflict.
It doesn't take a professional restoration specialist to identify signs of water damage. Several common signs are easily spotted, and homeowners should watch out for:
• Dark Spots
• Mold and Mildew
• Flaking Paint
• Puddles and Droplets
By keeping your eyes peeled for these signs, you can minimize the amount of water damage your home experiences. You might also be able to reduce the overall cost of remediation services by acting quickly.

Water damage can happen when you least expect it and depending on the source, may go on unnoticed for some time. It’s important to call in a water damage remediation team as soon as you notice water, water damage, or a leak, both for the health and safety of the members of your household and to prevent any further damage.
Water damage can have many different causes such as:
Here are some of the most common things we do:
DETERMINE THE SOURCE OF THE WATER
The first order of business is to make sure that the water has stopped. If the source is from plumbing, we may need to shut off water to the house and examine the pipes near the leak. Determining the source is important because some water may be toxic and will need to be handled in a different way. Sewage back-flow for example, or floodwater may require the use of special equipment and practices to make the home safe to enter again.
REMOVE STANDING WATER AND BEGIN DRYING PROCESS
If your house was flooded, we may need to bring in a pump to completely remove the water as well as large commercial dehumidifiers and air-movers and ensure that there is no water left. This is important since water left to sit can quickly begin to rust metal, deteriorate wood, and cause dangerous mold and mildew to grow.
