Blog Summary: Water damage can come from many different sources. SERVPRO of Crowley and South Johnson County shares some common sources of water damage that could go unnoticed for a long period of time.

Blog: If you’re a Marvel fan and have seen Captain America: Civil War, you saw how sometimes the greatest villain can come from unexpected places. The Avengers faced threats from all over the universe and spent time preparing for whatever external conflict came their way. After all they had been through, they grew together and became a family. However, the one thing that damaged their family and broke them up came from within their home. They focused so much on protecting themselves from outside threats that they missed the one right in front of them. 

Just like the Avengers, you may be sitting in your Cleburne home thinking about ways to be prepared for water damage that may come from external threats. Hurricanes, storms, and flooding are among these external threats that can cause water damage. While water damage can often come from external sources, the damage that can come from internal sources can also be just as serious.

Water damage threats that come from within your home can be much harder to spot and can go unseen for an extended period of time. A leaky pipeline or roof can go unnoticed and can cause widespread water damage if not taken care of. Excessive spills in your home that are not given the opportunity to properly dry can also cause water damage. These spills could come from doing things like watering your indoor plants or mopping your floors. Although there is nothing wrong with performing these tasks, if you are not careful, water can spill onto unwanted surfaces and over time cause serious damage if it remains wet.

Because water damage can be caused by sources that are hard to spot, it is important to run regular checks to make sure that everything in your home is running properly. It only takes a surface remaining wet for 24 to 48 hours for secondary damages to begin, such as mold and rotting. If you do identify water damage in your home, call SERVPRO of Crowley and South Johnson County. We will work efficiently to restore your water damaged home “Like it never even happened.”
