Texas has severe weather most of the year. We are accustomed to dealing with storm damages, but other causes of water damage can affect your property. Water damages can be extensive and cause major damages to your home. Below, Restoration 1 Conroe will discuss other causes of water damages.

Flash Flooding

With severe rain can come flash flooding. When flash flooding occurs, it can cause major water damages to your home. Being prepared for a flash flood is one way to protect your family, but it is harder to protect your home from flash flooding. The best way to avoid water damages from flash flooding is to be prepared and watch the weather. If there is a possibility of flash flooding, use sandbags and other ways to protect your property.

Faulty Appliances

Hot water heaters are notorious for causing water damages in homes. If your hot water begins to rust, it can eventually break and cause mass amounts of water to enter your home. This can cause extensive water damages throughout the property. If your hot water heater is making noises or you notice rust-colored water, call a plumber as soon as possible.

Storm Damages

As we stated above, Texas is no stranger to storm damages. A downed tree on your home not only causes structural damages but water damages to the interior of your home. If you experience storm damages, call a restoration company for tarp-off services to ensure no more water enters the home.

Roof and Gutter Damages

Broken or dirty gutters can cause water to back up and leak into the walls of your home. Missing or damaged shingles can cause water to leak into your attic. Your roof and gutter should be checked regularly to ensure they are free of debris and not missing any shingles.

Broken Pipes

A broken pipe isn’t the end of the world, but it can cause significant water damages. If you have a broken pipe, it is best to turn the water off at your property until a plumber can arrive and repair the damages.

If you have any water damages, Restoration 1 Conroe can not only remove the water but provide water damage repair services to your property. We will ensure all water is removed and that no mold will grow on your property!
