Water Damage from indoor plumbing
Water pipes that allow immediate access to a drink of water or the flush of a toilet are a modern day marvel that less than 75 years ago did not exist in many homes. This convenience makes life easier for us today than our predecessors could have ever dreamed. This blessing however is mechanical and as all mechanisms of invention are subject to Murphy's Law and problems that can require water damage service. Water pipes in the winter time if not insulated or are by a cold draft can freeze and burst. Drains on toilets can get clogged and overflow with waste that is very destructive and require strict cleaning guidelines for safety.
Some cities in Michigan such as Grosse Pointe, Saint Clair Shores, Eastpointe, Roseville, Warren, Royal Oak and Huntington Woods are especially susceptible to sewer backups and drain issues that may flood a basement or introduce waste water into the home environment. This situation will of necessity require professional water damage service to assure a safe environment that is dry and free from contaminates that may jeopardize health.
As household appliances age and get older, their parts begin to rust, crack and hoses can tear or weaken. Washing machines, hot water heaters, refrigerators and dishwashers are all susceptible to wear and compromise, so keep watch on older appliances. The two appliances that cause the most water need of water damage service is dish washers and washing machines.
Even the garbage disposal is not free from malfunction that may result in water damage service. Some leak undetected for weeks before rotting wood and mold are discovered. Many refrigerators today are equipped with ice makers that require a plumbing water supply line to the unit to make ice. These are very capable of tremendous water damage when the lines break and leak. We have serviced several homes where while on vacation for several weeks the homeowners came home to discover their entire first floor completely flooded from a broken refrigerator water supply line.
Drains that allow toilets to flush, sinks to drain and dish washers to clean dishes are also sources for water damage. Broken drains, cracked plumbing and even burst hot water heaters are capable of creating the type of water damage that will require professional water damage service.
Water damage in a crawlspace
Certain regions of some homes are more prone to water damage than others, such as crawl spaces, basements and attics. Crawl spaces are areas under a home where much of the mechanical aspects of the home reside. Plumbing, electrical and heating are often located in crawlspaces and typically small areas no one goes into except for emergencies.
One of those emergencies is water damage service. Frozen water pipes can burst, drains can leak and sewer systems can become blocked and backup with waste water. This type of water damage service is especially meticulous as the need is not to just fix and repair the leak but dry and restore so there is no compromise to the structural integrity of the home.
Crawlspaces are dark, damp areas where bugs, eco systems and mold flourish because they are damp and have no UV light. When they become wet and require water damage service it is important to remove all moisture so the wood substrates are solid and dry.
