Common Fall Water Damage Issues

Water Damage in a Home That Can Occur in the Fall

One of the biggest issues that any homeowner can experience comes from dealing with home repairs caused by Fall water damage. When you buy a home, you expect it to be your sanctuary where you are safe and nothing could ever go wrong. Unfortunately, there are elements that are completely out of our control such as water, and when the elements strike there is little that we can do to prevent it. Water damage can be a nasty business and as the weather begins to chill and storms become more prevalent, homeowners should be prepared to handle whatever the elements throw at them.

What Does Fall Water Damage Usually Look Like?

When there is more rainfall and more inclement weather, water damage and storm damage are almost inevitable. Not to mention the secondary damages caused by water that come in the form of mold and mildew. Typical fall water damage cases can be categorized as one of three main categories: storm damage, plumbing damage, and the side effects of water damage such as mold growth.

1. Rain and Storm Water Damage

Rain damage is one of the most noticeable signs of water damage that you can experience. One minute there is no water in your home, then it rains, then there IS water damage in your home. Pretty cut and dry (er… um, wet). When water damage from rain or storms occurs it is likely that there is a hole in your ceiling and roof that needs tending to.

2. Broken Plumbing and Appliances

By far one of the most devastating reasons for water damage is broken appliances and faulty plumbing. It’s pretty common for exposed pipes to freeze overnight when the temperature drops below freezing. When this happens, it can cause the pipes to burst at the seams and flood your home. Preventing this requires some foresight to know when the temperature will drop, but shutting off your water main is easy if you know where it is. If you experience water damage from broken pipes and appliances that causes your home to flood, shut off the water main immediately, and contact a water damage restoration company as soon as possible.

3. Mold and Rotting Materials

Sometimes you won’t notice water damage until it’s been around long enough to spawn mold and mildew in your home. When water damage goes unchecked under the right conditions, you may have mold and mildew growing in your home which contributes to home damage as well as health issues.
