Common Causes of Water Damage

Plumbing issues and weather-related events are the most common causes of water damage. This can include:

Frozen Pipes
  • Flash floods –When water levels rise suddenly, it can result in flash floods that may cause significant amounts of water to accumulate inside your property.
  • Storm damage –Severe storms can cause water to seep into your home or business. The risk of water damage after a severe storm is especially high if you are located in a low-lying area or have damage to your roof.
  • Poor plumbing maintenance –Poor plumbing maintenance can lead to clogs that cause toilets, sinks, and bathtubs to overflow, resulting in flooding.
  • Supply line and pipe leaks – Properties with old plumbing systems may have pipes that have deteriorated over time. Eventually, they may burst and cause significant flooding. Leaky pipes can also result in water seeping into walls and floors, causing water damage to develop slowly over time.
  • Frozen pipes –Winters in Washington and Idaho are very cold and if your pipes aren’t properly insulated, they can freeze. Water expands when it freezes, and this results in damage to the water lines that can create leaks. If these pipes eventually burst, it can result in flooding.

What to Do After Water Damage

Due to the serious issues that develop after water damage, we recommend that you consider addressing the following key measures before our water mitigation experts reach your location. While these steps are helpful, you should only take the actions that you feel you can do safely, as your safety should always remain top priority.

The following steps will help you minimize the severity of water damage and reduce your risk of injury:

  • Shut off the water source causing the damage.
  • If it’s safe to access the electrical panel, turn off any circuit breakers powering the wet areas of the property.
  • Use a bucket, mop, towels, or Shop-Vac to remove as much excess water as possible.
  • Remove wet upholstery cushions and prop them up so that they can dry.
  • Use wood blocks or aluminum foil to place a barrier between your furniture legs and wet carpeting.
  • Remove any valuable objects, electronic devices, paintings, and important documents from wet areas and secure them in a dry place.
  • Hang leather items separately at room temperature.
  • Stay clear of any areas that have electrical outlets, electrical equipment, or circuit breakers that have been exposed to water, since these areas present a risk of electric shock.
  • Don’t’ use a vacuum cleaner to remove water from your carpet since this may cause an electrical shock or damage the vacuum.
  • Don’t use ceiling fixtures such as fans or lights in rooms with wet ceilings.
  • Stay out of rooms where ceilings are sagging from water damage.

Once our water damage restoration team arrives, we’ll assess the problem and take the steps necessary to prevent additional damage from developing.

  • Extraction – Powerful pumps and water extraction equipment will be used to remove any standing water from the property. During this stage, all damp building materials will be removed and any contents prepared for cleaning and restoration.
  • Drying – After removing the water and wet materials, our team will set up fans and dehumidifiers to dry all the affected areas. Moisture monitors will be used to determine when your property is thoroughly dried.
  • Clean/deodorize/disinfect – Our team uses industrial grade products, state-of-the-art equipment, and specialized techniques to make sure all furniture, personal belongings, and structural components of the property are properly cleaned, deodorized, and disinfected.

This can involve replacing floors, installing new insulation and drywall, and any other repairs necessary to restore building structures. Our goal is to return your property to its previous condition or better.
