Plumbing problems are caused by hoses and pipe joints that have not been properly attached. Old plumbing can be a major source of damage in older homes. It is not always easy to identify these plumbing problems. Experts can detect the problem as quickly as possible.
Toilet Runs & Pipe Leaks
The cold weather can cause the pipes to freeze and burst in a matter of hours. It is therefore the most common cause of water damage. It is irritating to have the toilet constantly running, but if it leaks, you can ruin your walls and floors. The only way to solve a dangerous situation is by inspecting and repairing it immediately.
Washing Machine Malfunction
The washing machine is constantly filled by water pressure. The connection between the machine and pipes can be broken by overloaded pressure. The sudden rupture of the pipe can turn your laundry into a flood area that could lead to mold growth.
Attics and crawl spaces are more susceptible to damage. This allows mold to grow in the pipes built into walls, causing basement leaks. Air leaks between the attic and home section can cause moisture under your roof.
It is impossible to deny the devastating effects that floods, storms and heavy rains can have on your house. What you can do, however, is to take preventive steps in order to reduce the damage caused by storms and floods.
