Top Five Water Damage

  1. Bursting or leaking pipes such as those found in backed up toilets/drains. Damaged garbage disposal systems are another common location for bursting pipes.
  2. Issues with the plumbing system can be difficult or even impossible to detect. However, a common issue is hoses and joint pipes not being fully attached. 
  3. Water build-up in susceptible areas such as crawl spaces, attics, and basements. 
  4. Faulty household appliances. Every day appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators, and dishwashers are all susceptible to deterioration, so keep watch on older machines.
  5. HVACs (Heating, ventilating and air conditioning units) issues- especially concerning your everyday AC.
