Water Damage Causes

Causes of Water Damage Often Begin with Damaged or Leaky Pipes & Clogged Drains

One major cause of water damage is damaged pipes, which often become leaky pipes. In older homes or apartments, malfunctioning plumbing systems are more likely to clog drains and damage your property. For an apartment dweller, ask your neighbor upstairs to double-check his or her plumbing as well. Such a step could prevent an accident that would impact your apartment as well.

Clogged drains in the bathroom and sink can also cause water damage. If left unchecked, contaminants like dirt, hair, grease, and oil residues can build up in your pipes. Drains that become clogged can back up into your kitchen sink, causing an overflow that spreads foul odor throughout your home. To stay safe, always look for cracks, water spots, and or bulges containing water when you are looking for places to take preventive measures against a water-related disaster. 

Weather Can Also Lead to Water Damage

Weather Can Also Lead to Water Damage

Throughout the NYC Metro area, winters can be brutal. You must make sure that your pipes are properly insulated to avoid frozen or broken pipe damage during the coldest months.

In addition, heavy rains can leads to basement flooding or a leaky roof. Either option requires immediate attention. When adverse weather conditions inflict a hit on your roof, plumbing pipes, or dry basement, fight back with some Superior emergency water removal services. 

Appliances Can Lead to Many Types of Water Problems at Your Home or Office in NYC

Clogs Could Also Cause Water Damage

Another type of emergency water damage could come from household appliances. When you have a leaky dishwasher, refrigerator, water heater, or washing machine, you are always flirting with disaster until the leak is fixed ... or the appliance floods your property if you wait too long. These floods can be caused by cracked hoses, dry gaskets, rusty pipes, or loose connections. If you can catch a small leak before it becomes a much larger one, you will avoid a major & costly repair.

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning units also can be sources of emergency water damage. Always double-check every component of your HVAC unit to make sure it is in tip-top condition. In the basement, issues with your sump pump could cause devastating flooding. Check regularly for signs of leaks in the vent hole and areas around the pump itself. Your outlet pipes should be fastened tightly and no fewer than six feet away from your location to keep your sump pump running properly.
