    Water Damage Hazards Every Homeowner Should Be Aware Of

    How Every Homeowner can overcome Water Damage Hazards

    When it comes to your loving home, there are water damage hazards every homeowner must be aware of. Since having a property is such a big investment, many homeowners and business-owners often perceive their home as a milestone for them, their family, and the generations that follow. Being such a large investment, homeowners should be aware of the most commonly-known types of property damage – Water Damage. Whether it’s a leaking faucet, or a huge flood, there are ways you may be able to compensate for your loss.


    Understanding the Types of Water Damage

    Water damage can be anywhere from a small leak in the roof, to huge, excess amounts of water, flooding every crevice of your property. When trying to determine the source of water damage, it’s best to do so precisely and correctly. This is because the source of water damage, may compliment whether the damage is covered as stated under your insurance policy. Some examples of water damage hazards include:

      • A leak in the roof,
      • Weight of excess snow, ice, or sleet,
      • Freezing of plumbing and pipes (burst pipes),
      • Sewer / water line backup; and/or
      • Floods

    The list may go on forever. Although there are so many different types of damages to be aware of, the more important conversation is what to do in the event that something actually happens.


    Understanding Water Damage in the Long-Run

    When it comes to water damage, there may be a chance you don’t even realize the damage exists in your home. For example, let’s say your home’s interior plumbing begins corrupts, allowing the burst pipes to distribute water all throughout the inside of your walls. Weeks pass by and your walls are now a feeding field for hazardous bacteria, like mold. Leftover water damage may impact your home’s well-being, giving your home an open invitation for bacteria like mold and black mold to grow within your home. Without proper care, or removal, of the mold, long-term health issues may arise. Some signs of mold growth in your home include the following:

      • Runny or stuffed nose,
      • Aggressive cough,
      • Irritated and watery eyes,
      • Irritated nose and throat passageways; and
      • Dry skin
