While it is extremely important to prevent water damage, the majority of homeowners may not think that they are at risk. Unfortunately, there are many different sources that can contribute to water leaks and damage. It may start out small at first; however, it can go unnoticed until a pool of water is then discovered in the basement or crawlspace of a home. Water damage can also occur if the moisture levels on your property are particularly high.
