Our team at On-Deck Restoration LLC has extensive experience in dealing with water damage. Whether your home has been impacted by a hurricane, flood, or other disaster, or has been damaged due to something like a burst pipe, you can turn to us to get the expert restoration services you need.
In this article, we’ll go over some of the most common causes of water damage to help you be aware of all the ways your home can be affected and to help you take steps to minimize the risk.
- Severe Weather – As we alluded to above, one of the most common causes of water damage is severe weather events such as hurricanes, thunderstorms, and floods. Florida is no stranger to these events, and unfortunately, there is only so much you can do to reduce the risks of them causing water damage. We encourage you to invest in robust insurance to cover the costs of any restoration that may be necessary—and our team will be happy to provide those restoration services to make your home as good as new.
- Leaks – Another common cause of water damage is leaks—leaky pipes, leaky roofs, leaky washing machine lines, and more. Even a small leak can do severe damage over time, so we encourage you to have your plumbing, roof, gutters, etc., inspected regularly. That way, you can catch and correct any leaks before they can do worse harm.
- Condensation – A third common cause of water damage is condensation from your air conditioning unit. Normally, the condensation produced by an air conditioning unit runs out a drain line and is deposited onto the soil outside, but if this drain line gets interrupted, the moisture can instead soak into the floor and cause significant damage over time.
