Common Reasons for Water Intrusions
There is a variety of places in your home where water should not be, and common reasons you may be experiencing a water intrusion problem, including but not limited to:
- Broken/Leaking Pipe
- Sink or Toilet Overflow
- HVAC Issue
- Poor Grading
- Foundation Cracks
- Flooding / Rising Waters
If you haven’t had a major water intrusion problem, you could still have damage due to excess moisture and/or water vapor. When humidity levels rise, it's the building materials and any belongings inside that absorb the excess moisture. This type of issues can be harder to detect because they can be more widespread or at least affect an entire room, making it difficult to distinguish where the problem is coming from. If left undetected and untreated the mold can colonize deep into building materials and make the restoration process that much more extensive. Reasons for excessive moisture and water vapor can include but are not limited t
- Broken HVAC / Dehumidifier
- Lack of Insulation
- Vacant Home
- Improper/Lack of Ventilation
