If your home or business has been damaged by floods, water leaks, rainwater, runoff, or other water-related issues, it is important to have your home professionally restored as soon as possible.
Water damage can result in significant deterioration of the structural integrity of your home’s walls, flooring, and ceiling. Objects inside your home such as furniture can also be affected. If left unrestored, water damage can cause your home’s stability to decrease and create serious hazards for you, your family, and anyone else inside your home. Water damage can also create additional problems such as mold growth, which can begin to grow when moisture left behind is not completely dried.
If your property has experienced any type of water damage, it is important that you seek water restoration services as soon as possible, because time is of the essence. The longer you wait, the higher the chances are of your home becoming structurally unsound.
Common Causes of Water Damage
There are many incidents that call for water damage restoration. Some may not seem like candidates for bringing in restoration services, but these seemingly small incidents can cause significant problems when left unrestored.
Some very common ways that your home can be water damaged include:
• Broken pipes
• Leaking pipes
• Sink overflow
• Washing machine leaks
• Water heater problems
• Dishwasher overflow
• Toilet overflow
• Air conditioner leaking
• Sump pump failure
• Hardwood floor water damage
• Rainwater seepage into the home
• Sewage pipe damage
Although these are not the only causes of water damage a home can sustain, these are the most common and significant.
El Paso Water Restoration Services
Water restoration services include professional drying of objects and structures within your home to remove both water and moisture that may have been left behind. The moisture can encourage mold growth or damage the structural integrity of your home’s floor, ceiling, and walls.
Water restoration services can also include finding the source of the water damage, particularly when it comes to leaking pipes, broken/burst pipes, or other similar problems that are difficult for homeowners to detect. Professional technicians have a higher chance of locating broken pipes or the sources of leaks, particularly in hard to reach pipes such as sprinkler line pipes. These tend to go unnoticed until the homeowner sees rushes of water flooding through the bottom portion of the home.
Water restoration services can also include finding and repairing sewage pipe damage. Broken, backed up, or otherwise damaged sewage pipes can result in sewage and blackwater backup into the home. These types of water backups can cause significant problems, including health hazards due to the countless disease-causing parasites and bacteria they carry. These parasites and bacteria can include E. coli, rotavirus, salmonella, hepatitis, and even fungi.
