Most Common Water Damages in the Home

8/6/2020 (Permalink)

What is water damage?

Unfortunately, there are many different forms of water damage that you can find in your home. The SERVPRO of Paducah team has complied a list of the five most common types of water damage that we usually find in our client's homeowner.

Five most common types of water damage

1. Leaking or burst pipes- Pipes can burst for many reasons, making them a common cause of water damage. A lot of the times in Kentucky, pipes will freeze during the cold temperatures and eventually burst. Other common causes are unregulated water pressure, inevitable wear and tear, and other temperature changes.

2. HVAC units- When homeowners forget to check on their air conditioner and provide proper maintenance, these units can accumulate moisture and eventually result in a leak. This can lead to an even bigger problem if mold begins to form.

3. Clogged gutters- This water damage is typically found in the foundation of your home. When gutters are clogged with various debris, they do not operate as they are intended to and overflow at the expensive of your home. 

4. Faulty household appliances- Washing machines, refrigerators, dishwashers, and hot water tanks can all cause a lot of damage to your home. Many of these appliances are viewed as necessity, so it is very unfortunate that these appliances are all susceptible to creating damage. 

5. General plumbing issues- Plumbing damage is one of the most difficult forms of water damage for the average homeowner to detect. Common signs of this form of damage are dripping faucets, leaks around your tub or shower, and overflowing toilets. 

SERVPRO of Paducah can help

As you can see, most of the most common forms of water damage that we have listed are inevitable. That is why it is important for you to have your local SERVPRO franchise within quick reach. Water damage can quickly worsen if homeowners do not immediately address the situation, due to molding and further deterioration.

Call the SERVPRO of Paducah at (270) 443-4555 today to quickly and efficiently address your water damage issues, for a home as good as new.

Storms Cause Major Damage

Tree in Bathroom This is the tree that fell through the roof into the bathroom.

When a large tree fell onto the roof of this duplex, much of it ended up in the bathroom where it damaged plumbing lines, adding to the water damage already caused by the heavy rains accompanying the wind storm. The property owners knew to call SERVPRO of Paducah based on our word of mouth reputation. Our emergency crews immediately responded. The water was shut off, the tree was removed from the structure, and then it was secured with a tarp. Standing water was extracted, and wet non-salvageable materials were identified with a thermal imaging camera and moisture meters, and then removed. The structure was rapidly dried with our equipment, and reconstruction followed. This allowed the tenants to return to their homes, and the income loss for the property owners was mitigated.

Water Can cause Lots of Problems

water upstairs leaves ceiling wet The ceiling damage caused by a water line in the upstairs bath.

For days prior to its discovery, water had run from a supply line from an upstairs vanity in this upscale home. This resulted in heavy damage to every room on both levels but a living room. Due to the volume of water that flooded the home,  and the length of time involved, much of the materials could not be saved. High end cabinets, high grade wood floor, and ceramic tile were some of the materials involved. SERVPRO of Paducah responded, and the mitigation that was performed prevented additional problems such as mold growth. The structure is now dry and in the process of selecting the new cabinets, flooring, and other choices necessary for reconstruction. The availability of our in-house designers greatly streamlines this process.

Fire & Smoke Damage

Fire Damage Wall This is what fire can do very quickly to any home!

Fire & Smoke Damage

When the firefighters leave, it may seem like the danger has passed and the home is safe from further destruction, but without professionals to help clean the smoke damage, the building may never return to normal.  While the principles behind fire restoration are simple, it requires a lot of experience and manpower to perform adequately, and this means that it shouldn’t be attempted by a homeowner on his or her own.  The trained professionals at SERVPRO of Paducah should be called on-site immediately.  We can clean smoke damage and restore items affected by the fire, but we must be brought to the site as soon as possible to halt the ongoing issues that ash residue can cause.

The only way to properly clean smoke and fire damage is to be extremely thorough.  Ash residue is easily disturbed and can spread through the building with ease, causing nearly everything to need restoration.  The experts at SERVPRO of Paducah will identify what can and cannot be salvaged and will remove any built-up ash residue that is coating surfaces.  Over time, ash builds up in layers, and may form into a lacquer-like consistency.  Once this is done, the restorers will locate the source of the odor, and treat it with specialized detergents that are formulated for neutralizing this kind of odor.  Once materials are treated, they may be sealed off to prevent any further odor from permeating the air in the future.
