Residential Water Damage Repair & Removal
Even in the desert, water damage is common in homes and offices.
It’s actually the fastest growing type of claim on homeowners insurance, according to the American Insurance Association.
Causes of Residential Water Damage
- Leaking pipes
- Frozen/burst pipes
- Broken water heater
- Drain backups
- Leaky roof
- Sump pump or sewer backup
- Natural disasters
Some of the greatest residential water damage can occur with a slow-growing problem, such as a crack in a plumbing line, because it sets the stage for other problems, such as mold. No matter what the cause, drying out and cleaning up water quickly is crucial for your health and safety.
Types of Damage
- Structure (framing, drywall, flooring, cabinets)
- Personal belongings (clothing, furniture, valuables)
- Sewer backup
- Standing water
When it’s possible, turn off the water at its source or call us for help. Begin mopping up water to reduce its flow and damage until we arrive. The exception to this is a sewage backup, which needs to be left to us, since this water is highly contaminated. With water damage, the moisture you can’t see causes the greatest problems.
