One of the most common causes of water damage to a home or business property is leaking and flooding from plumbing mishaps. Plumbing is a feature in bathrooms, kitchens, garages, and basements, so there are opportunities for water damage all throughout the property from damaged plumbing.
Water damage from poor plumbing may need extensive water damage restoration, so it is a good idea to be aware of where your plumbing is, how to turn off water in the event of a plumbing mishap, and who to call if there is a plumbing disaster.
Where Plumbing Leaks Can Happen And What To Do About Them
Plumbing can fail at many places in your home. Gaskets can erode,pipes and hoses can develop leaks, drains can get clogged. Obviously, one of the first things people think of when they think of plumbing catastrophes is bathroom plumbing, specifically, the toilet. Leaks can spring from the tank through cracks or faulty hoses, water lines, or old fixtures. They can come from the bowl the same way. These can be small, slow drips, or big gushing messes. They can wreak havoc with your flooring.
Drains from sinks, bathtubs, and other sources can clog and overflow, causing damage to floors, walls, and ceilings from second floor leaks. Kitchen sink leaks can destroy the undersink cabinet if the leak is slow and you don’t notice it right away. Water heater leaks can happen anytime and can be a huge mess. A good idea is to just go inspect your rooms with plumbing occasionally to check for small leaks and drips. If you find any, check the area around them to see if surfaces are wet or spongy. If you have a sudden blowout, toilet overflow, or any other big plumbing disaster, turn off the water source and start clearing the water immediately. You may need plumbing water damage remediation.
Water in floors, walls, and ceilings can usher in the growth of mold and mildew, and can compromise structures in your home. Be sure to call a company that specializes in water damage remediation.
