Unseen Damages Caused By Water Leaks

3/5/2019 (Permalink)

A busted water line in the attic of this home caused a lot of unseen damage.

A sudden busted pipe or slow leak can lead to thousands of dollars of damage. Just because you can not see the water does not mean it is not doing any harm. 

A leaking pipe in the attic can, over time, cause your ceilings to fall in. It can also sit and saturate your insulation and spread the damage to more areas that would not have previously been affected, not to mention the threat of mold. 

All it takes is a crack or hole in the floor covering to allow water to get between the floor covering and your subfloor. This can lead to soft floors, rotting joist, and if your house is on a crawlspace, wet insulation under your home. 

It is always important to know the extent of the water migration and SERVPRO of Sumter can be the difference between restoration or replacing.
