Most Common Causes of Water Damage:
Water Leaks from Toilets
A leaky toilet can ruin walls and floors. If you suspect your toilet is leaking, you can check it quickly. The toilet lid needs to get removed. It is then necessary for you to put a dye tablet in the tank. Wait 10-15 minutes after putting the lid back on the toilet. Examine the water in the bathroom by removing the lid. As a result, colored water indicates a leak.
Over time, toilet leaks tend to get worse. You need to get it fixed immediately if the damage is apparent.
Sewage Backup Water Damage
Tree roots can block drainage systems. Typically, sewage backups are identifiable by a foul-smelling drain, slow draining bathtubs, and water backed up in the shower or sink. The best thing to do is to perform regular plumbing maintenance to prevent sewage backup.
Several issues can arise from a malfunctioning garbage disposal. Food and dirty water can enter your home if your garbage disposal leaks. If this occurs, you will have to repair or replace your garbage disposal.
