How to Find Water Damage
According to statistics, the probability of water damage occurring is 7 times more than that of fire damage and 6 times that of burglary. Statistics do not lie and if the insurance claims as a result of water damage are anything to go by, it is fast becoming a household and industrial disaster.
Generally, water damage occurs when excess water begins to pool in areas where it should not. This has the potential of causing damage and even loss of property depending on the magnitude of the water damage. Being aware of the potential causes of water damage can give you a precursor to help in taking precautionary measures. Remember, the quicker you spot a potential water problem the higher the chances of damage minimization.
Main Reasons for Water Damage
There are various causes of water damage. Some of these may be easily identifiable while others such as underground leaking pipes may not. Below are some of the common causes of water damage.
Busting and leaking Pipes
These are the leading causes of water damage in homes and industrial setups. With time, pipes age and rust thereby developing weak points from which their contents can leak through. Blocked drains also pile pressure on pipes thereby causing them to burst.
Poor workmanship such as poor fixing of pipes and hose joints can cause leakages which result into pooling of water. While fitting larger pipes into small ones or branching, poor plumbing can create weak points around such areas.
Basement, Crawl Space and Attic Problems
Certain sections of the house are more vulnerable to water damage. Damp crawl spaces for instance attract moulds which cause structural damages and moisture accumulation. Also, concrete foundations that allow moisture to drip can cause pooling of water in basements. In the section between the attic and the roof, air leakage can cause moisture to accumulate under the roof.
Faulty Household Appliances
Refrigerators, washing machines, dish washers and water heaters can be agents of water damage through their piping. With time, these pipes rust and crack and the hoses become weak. These are potential leakage points. Heating, Ventilation and Air Condition (HVAC) Problems – Systems such as air conditioners require regular repairs. If not done, their malfunctioning may cause accumulation of moisture.
