Water Damage Salt Lake City

water-damage-restorationWater damage comes in many forms. It may be a one-time indoor flooding due to a busted water pipe, broken sump pump, or malfunctioning appliance, and it can be a seemingly minor moisture problem that could creep up to become a major mold devastation. At 24/7 Water Damage Salt Lake City we resolve all types of water damage concerns with efficient speed that will help prevent major damage that could cause even bigger expenses.

Water damage spreads fast, and not having it treated right away will cause even more trouble. Mold sets in within 48 hours of continuous water exposure, corrosion can take place in metallic fixtures, and wood can expand and paint may chip within days of continuous submersion. If a property owner will not act fast, damage can further set in and cause irreversible destruction in furnishings, appliances, and the building structure.

Usual Causes of Water Damage

Water damage can take place anytime, in any part of the house. Here are some possible causes of water damage:

  1. Severe weather disturbances – Flashfloods, typhoons, hurricane, tornadoes, tsunami-causing earthquakes, snow storms and the like can cause flooding that can enter any home. When this happens basements get submerged in flood, furnishing and appliances sustain damage, and carpeting can get wet.
  2. Roof Leak problems – Trouble with the roofing system can cause water damage in walls, other structures of the home, carpet flooring, and furnishings in the house.
  3. Plumbing issues – plumbing emergencies can take place anytime especially when the home plumbing system is aging and is ill-maintained. Leaking pipes, dripping faucets, overflowing tubs and toilets, drainage clogs, and sewer backups are common issues that cause water damage. The winter season can also cause frozen pipes that can even burst and cause instantaneous indoor flooding.
  4. Overflowing natural bodies of water – Overflowing dams, rivers, and creeks can inundate a home within its vicinity. Unfortunately this is beyond the control of any property owner. And with climate change, things can get even more unpredictable.
  5. Fires. Fire incidents can become a cause of water damage as the water that is used to extinguish it can cause indoor flooding. This type of water damage could just be one of the worst types because it can come from any direction, and soak up every fixture and furnishing in sight.
  6. Plumbing emergencies within the community. A burst pipeline or a blocked sewage line can cause flooding within a neighborhood that can flow through homes. Such incidents are unavoidable, and unfortunately, the flood water it brings about are very unsanitary.
