There is a reason more property damage is caused by water than any other source. This is because water or excess moisture may find its way inside in many different ways. Adverse weather is a common cause of water damage as rain and natural floods contribute to indoor flooding. However, water damage may also occur due to internal causes such as roof leaks, plumbing issues, condensation, pipe bursts, and sewage backups. If you discover water damage of any kind, it is important to act because the water will spread the longer it is left, resulting in widespread structural damage and even mold growth.

Damage from Water and Flooding
You need to respond to any amount of water damage quickly because even a minor amount of water can result in property damage. Many furnishings and building materials such as wood and drywall are porous which allows the water to spread and penetrate deeper in affected areas. Materials that absorb water may becomes discolored, stained, or rotted. These materials are also at risk for structural damage and mold growth which will introduce new problems to the situation.
