Broken or leaking pipes can cause water damage to your home
Broken pipes are one of the leading causes of water damage in homes, and many homeowners may experience a pipe burst or leak at some point.
Broken or damaged pipes are not always immediately found. Sometimes they may leak for days, weeks or even months before they are found. Leaking pipes can cause tremendous damage to your home and contents. If left unattended for a long period of time, the water damage can also lead to health problems once mold and mildew set in.
Signs that may indicate a pipe leak would include reduced water pressure, a rise in water bills or even noticeable damage to the structure of your home.
You may notice lumps or bumps in your carpet or hardwood floors which could lead to wood rot. You may also notice mold or mildew beginning to grow, which can lead to health problems for your family. Also paint or wallpaper pealing from the wall is an indicator that there may be a leak that is penetrating through the wall.
Every home has numerous pipes that can burst or break that can cause water damage to your home. If you experience water damage to your home from a broken or leaking pipe call SERVPRO of Medina County, Gateway, Western Lake County at 800-933-7179.
