Causes of Water Damage

Water damage happens for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Plumbing leakages
  • Broken water heaters
  • Severe weather conditions like storm damage
  • Appliance leakages
  • Burst or broken pipes and hoses
  • Clogged toilet issues
  • Moisture behind walls
  • A leaking roof
  • Foundation cracks

Basement Damage

The basement is the most prone area of the house requires a detailed cleanup. Read the following in order to learn when there is a potential cause of water damage in the basement of your house or business.
When the sewer drain gets clogged to prevent the water from going through, sewage backup may occur. Water backup will occur instead of going through. The waste liquid will flow in your home's direction and reach your basement, flooding it. To repair and clean the sewage system, call us for any kind of damage restoration in Washington DC.
Our homes are usually built with a drainage system that will help stop flooding caused by groundwater. However, when the groundwater level increases higher than what the drainage system can carry, there are occasions, such as during the rainy season. Water can leak when this occurs and can flood your basement through the cracks in the foundation. You can solve this issue by adding a curtain drain.
Because of the accumulated leaves, twigs, and other clutter, your roof gutters can get clogged. When this occurs, water cannot flow properly during heavy rain. Through the foundation or gaps in the walls, flooding water may reach the basement. In order to avoid overflowing gutter problems, routine maintenance and reviews of your roofing system is important, particularly when bad weather or typhoon comes.
Another common cause of damage in the basement is damaged or exploding water pipes. Make sure to find the cause of the issue and fix it once you have stopped the flooding. Better still, to repair the issues, call a licensed plumber.

It is during the routine reviews that early signs of water damage can be found. Check the building for any signs of leaked water on the walls, floors, and ceilings, such as damp areas or discoloration. In any wet area, molds and mildew thrive, so if you spot the mold in your house, there is also a water source near it. For any sign of leakage, check the plumbing system that leads to the dishwasher, washing machines, fridge, and other appliances. Make it a habit of getting expert reviews before going away for a holiday to shut off the water supply source. Indoor green solutions are the best for mold.


Damage to water may be caused either by an internal or external source. After a sequence of thorough reviews of your plumbing system and everything is in good order, check the places where moisture can enter, such as your windows, doors, downspouts, and others in your home or house. Seek a pro to do reviews of the gutter and the roof. Make sure there are no shingles that are missing or damaged. To ensure that rainwater can flow freely, remove any debris that has accumulated in the gutter. To avoid seepage, caulk and reseal windows or any cracks.

It is always better to be safe than sorry. This is specifically true when dealing with water damage. You will never know when a storm hits your area or when your pipe breaks accidentally; so the best option is to be prepared. Some general tips for people who stay in damage susceptible regions are following:

Water Damage Restoration Process

The process of repairing water damage begins with a water mitigation company, which arrives at the scene to inspect the property, contain and prevent further damage, and finally remove any standing water from it so that the process of recovery can begin.
It is worth noting that although it is not uncommon for a water damage reduction company to operate independently of a water damage repair company, both mitigation and restoration services will always be performed by the same company.
After water extraction, however, is when the water damage recovery process really starts. Here is a glimpse at the usual way it takes place:

1. Compulsory extraction of water

If required, if the carpet is considered recoverable, the procedure can consist of using portable extractors to remove any excess water that soaks the carpet. The carpet may need to be removed and discarded in other situations.

2. Removal of Demolition And Debris

In certain instances of water damage, if it can not be salvaged, some building materials (i.e. drywall down to the studs, carpeting, carpet padding, etc.) will need to be removed. Before drying out of the property takes place, this process typically takes place, as removing drywall to reveal wall cavities and carpeting to expose subflooring can result in a more successful overall drying process. If it is decided that there has been no structural damage, then repair companies will normally skip this step and move on to the belongings drying out.

3. Final Drying Out Process

Next up, air movers are strategically arranged to help dry out the assets and place dehumidifiers to remove humidity from the air. It's not unusual for the assets to dry out in a matter of just a few days with the correct drying schedule.

4. Application to Antimicrobials

Fungal and mold production can be a problem in certain water damage circumstances. It may take as little as 24 hours for mold to start growing under the right conditions, so whether it is out of caution or out of necessity, an indoor green solutions company will apply antimicrobials to prevent mold growth or kill existing mold spores.

5. Restoration of Damaged Property

While any kind of damage to land has the ability to destroy those belongings, today, content restoration technologies have progressed to a point where many items are also salvageable. A material pack out will typically occur at the beginning of the restoration process. This consists of a repair company extracting and restoring recoverable materials such as textiles, garments, hard goods, images, appliances, and more from the site. You can not save every object, but many can.

6. Rebuilding & Building Back

Usually, the final phase of the reconstruction process includes moisture monitoring to ensure dryness, and then construction services to restore the removed building structure. This may include power, plumbing, drywall, supplies for finishing, etc. In the whole process, a full-service repair company will assist you.

IIRCR Classification of Water Damage

There are three major damage types that result from a wide variety of causes of water damage. These may be from a busted drinking water line, a rupture in drain waste and ventilation (DWV) pipe, a backup of a sewage line sending biologically polluted black water into a house, or a natural disaster where the estate or land is flooded by brackish runoff or seawater. These classifications are based on the degree to which the water responsible for the damage is polluted.
The three classifications for water damage are:

Class 1 Water Damage:
Class 1 Water Damage is where the water originates and is suitable for human use from a portable or sanitary source. This water is not a threat to exposure to ingestion, dermal or inhalation. Sources commonly include damaged supply lines, sprinkler systems, contaminant-free overflowing containers, or natural sources such as rain or meltwater. This is known as water that is "fresh".

Class 2 Water Damage:
Class 2 Water Damage is when there is substantial pollution in the water and if humans drink or come in contact with it, it may actually cause illness or pain. This includes dangerous amounts of micro-organisms and/or chemical or biological substances, such as diluted urine, detergents, hydrostatic pressure penetration or storage tanks that have been ruptured. This is referred to as water that is "grey."

Class 3 Water Damage:
Class 3 Water Damage is where the water is "grossly contaminated" and contains poisonous and pathogenic agents that are dangerous. Raw sewage is by far the most common "black" water abuser and can be lethal to people and harmful to home or building if the repair of sewage damage is not fully remedied. Sanitary sewage backups, brackish water from rivers and streams, overflowing seawater and all types of ingress from natural disasters are included in black water sources where pollutants such as pesticides and heavy metals are brought into a house. Prominent black mold growth is seen in wet area of home.

It is important to remember that, if not immediately remedied, one type of water damage may be multiplied into a more severe category. For organic pathogens, wet, warm and enclosed areas are ideal breeding grounds that increases health risks of the resident or the business owners. Spores easily multiply and become mold that can move a category 1 risk into costly category 3 situation that is not easy to clean in home.
