Causes of Water Damage
Water can damage your home or business in many different ways, such as rotting wood, mold growth, rusting steel, and even structural damage to places like walls and ceilings. Water damage occurs because of natural disasters like a flood or from smaller — but no less damaging — sources like leaky or broken pipes, clogged toilets, or a broken washing machine tube.
Effects of Leaving Water Damage Untreated
Leaving water damage untreated can have long-term, costly effects on your home or business. A small leak can turn into a rotting support beam quicker than you’d think. Your best option is to get in contact with Broadshield Restoration as soon as you suspect damage so as to avoid thousands of dollars of repairs and health risks for your family or employees.
Here are a few of the long-term effects of water damage:
- Corroded pipes. If you already have a leak, corroded pipes just make it worse.
- Damaged ceilings. Not only do water spots on the ceiling look bad, they also can cause bulging walls and damage to lights and fans.
- Mold and health hazards. Mold grows quickly in a water damaged home. It’s a huge health problem and can cause respiratory infections, especially in small children and seniors.
- Weakens your home’s foundation. Water damage causes serious structural damage and can even invite in termites and carpenter ants, compounding damage.
Prevent Water Damage In Your Home
Preventing water damage is a lot cheaper than paying for repairs, and it helps you and your family in the long run.
Downspouts and gutters are a huge contributor to water damage. It may be a pain to clean your gutters regularly, but doing so helps prevent water from flowing into your foundation. You should also make sure your downspouts direct water five to ten feet away from your house, which prevents water from seeping into your basement, garage, and foundation.
You should also fix all water leaks and repair shingles as quickly as possible. Leaks lead to mold, mildew, and rot, which all lead to further damage.
