Common Causes of Water Damage in Your Property

Storm Damage and Flash Floods

Your property may face water damage from natural disasters like tornadoes, hurricanes, and similar events. Powerful winds and heavy rainfall can harm your roof, leading rainwater to enter your home or business. In severe cases, extreme weather conditions can trigger flash floods, especially in flood-prone areas. Explore our guide on what to do when confronted with flash floods.

Overflowing Bathtubs, Sinks, and Washing Machines

Surprisingly, water damage can occur when individuals in multi-story units forget to turn off the water while preparing a bath, leading to overflow. Washing machine failures, causing overflow, are also common. Such incidents result in flooding on the floors of the affected units, sometimes causing leaks from upper floors to units below. This flooding can damage walls, floors, drywall, ceilings, and other home components. Visit our blog to discover the necessary actions to take in case of a washing machine overflow.

Pipes and Supply Line Leaks

The pipes in your property distribute water, so any leaks or punctures can lead to significant damage. A leaking kitchen sink pipe may allow water to flow into the cabinet below, causing potential harm. If a pipe inside the walls is leaking, the situation can escalate. Such leaks can cause substantial water damage and the formation of mold colonies as the entire wall becomes saturated. Moreover, if there’s a leak in your plumbing supply line or drainage pipe beneath the concrete slab, it can pose a serious problem. Learn how to detect leaks that may lead to water damage within your walls.

Frozen Pipes

Many people contact Double Clean when searching for a solution to frozen pipes. Frozen pipes are a common issue during colder months. As temperatures drop, poorly insulated pipes can freeze, causing water expansion that damages water lines, leads to leaky pipes, and results in house flooding. Check out our tips on preventing pipes from freezing and gain insights into winter storm safety for homeowners.

Applied Structural Drying Services

Experiencing flood damage on your property can be overwhelming, and you might think about tackling the cleanup process yourself. However, it's important to pause and consider the following:

Water damage extraction and structural drying are complex tasks that require expert knowledge and advanced tools. To prevent potential issues, it's best to leave the job in the hands of a professional water damage removal service. This decision is crucial for a prompt and thorough recovery.

    Calgary water damage that is covered by homeowners insurance is typically damage that is the result of a sudden and accidental event, such as a flood or water main break. If the water damage is the result of a slow leak, it may not be covered by homeowners insurance. If you have water damage in your home, it is important to act quickly to get the damage repaired. One of the most important things you can do is to file a claim with your insurance company as soon as possible. Most homeowners insurance policies will cover water damage, but it is important to understand what is covered under your policy. If you have water damage, it is important to take steps to protect your property from further damage.

If you have recently experienced water damage in your home, it is important to take the necessary steps to correct the situation as soon as possible. While DIY restoration may be an option for some minor damages, it is always best to consult with a professional water damage restoration company when faced with extensive or serious damage. A professional water damage restoration company will have the experience and expertise to properly assess the level of damage, develop a plan of action, and efficiently restore your home back to its original condition.

  • How much does water damage restoration cost?

    The cost of Calgary water damage restoration varies depending on the size of the area that has been damaged, the extent of the damage, and the type of services that are required. Generally speaking, costs will range from $500 to $10,000 or more. It's important to note that not all water damage is equal. For example, if a pipe has burst and water is flowing freely through your home, the damage will be much greater than if you simply had a leaky faucet. In addition, some types of services will be more expensive than others. For example, removing water and drying out an area will typically be less expensive than repairing structural damage or replacing carpets and furniture.
