Top Causes of Water Damage

From leaky pipes to torrential rains and flash flooding, water has the potential to cause serious damage in your home. Here are some of the top causes of water damage in your home: 

1. Appliance Leaks

  • Leaks from your appliances can lead to damaged cabinets, warped wood, or mold growth.

2. Broken Pipes

  • Freezing temperatures can cause your pipes to burst. Even a minor dripping leak can cause severe water damage over time.

3. Water Overflow

  • Forgetting to turn off the sink or bathtub can cause problems over multiple floors of your home. Overflows can severely affect flooring, carpeting, and even a downstairs ceiling.

4. Sewer Backup

  • Severe storms, flooding, or tree roots blocking pipes can cause sewer backups.
