Did You Know That Nearly Half Of Water Damages Come From Indoor Plumbing?

water damage minneapolis, water damage cleanup minneapolisI have personally experienced the disaster of water damage in my Minneapolis home 4 times! Not even joking, and I am diligent in keeping up with maintenance …MOST of the time! All I can say is I am so grateful and relieved that I know a great company to call! My last water damage happened while I was in Mexico on vacation. Talk about a stressful call to get when you’re relaxing on a beach thousands of miles away! One of my bathroom toilets overflowed and it was hours before my friend that was house-sitting for us discovered it. Since I have experienced this 4 times in my own home, I can promise you if you ever experience this for yourself, this too shall pass. As hectic as it is while you are in the midst of it, just keep remembering all material things can be fixed! Sometimes this is also a good reason (advantage) to do some upgrades on your wish list! Whether it’s flooring or paint colors …or even a whole new kitchen remodel! I mean why not right!?! Keep reading to learn how to help avoid this damp surprise, which seems (crazy enough) to happen often to people on vacation.

Many leaks and floods occur when older piping springs a leak without warning. PVC piping can become yellow, brittle and easily breakable. Copper plumbing sometimes exhibits pinholes that spray fine mists or drip. This damage can be hidden behind walls or in areas like basements and crawl spaces, making it difficult to detect in the early stages. Warning signs may include knocking or banging sounds from pipes, water pressure that is lower than usual, dripping sounds that you can’t locate and new water stains.  Pipes aren’t the only culprits when indoor floods happen: washing machines, dishwashers, refrigerators, heating and ventilation systems and water heaters are famous violators also. You can check out some of my other blogs for maintenance on appliances to help avoid those kinds of leaks and potential water damages.

Regular maintenance, inspection, and replacement help keep water confined. In fact, experts say that many appliance and system leaks show warning signs before they occur that qualified professionals can easily identify. Some homeowners hire plumbers to periodically ‘audit’ plumbing systems and others elect to install sump pumps or digital early-warning technology.

If surprise leaks do occur, don’t delay in shutting off the main water supply and getting immediate help. Mold and mildew can begin to grow on surfaces in as little as 24 hours, necessitating thorough cleanup by trained professionals. Finally, it is always good to check and review your insurance coverage for water damage. Many homeowners aren’t just surprised by indoor flooding – they’re dismayed to find that many policies don’t cover all repair and restoration costs. 

Even with regular maintenance and our best efforts to protect our plumbing, leaks and water damage can unfortunately still happen. 24Restore is available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week to help you with any source of leak or water damage in your home or business.
