Water damage can occur from variety of sources not just a severe storm. In fact, frozen pipes, small leaks in the plumbing, sewage backups, sump pumps breaking down are just a few of the examples.
Interestingly, nearly 40% of homeowners have experienced a water damage at some point during home ownership. If you are in the 60% who haven’t experienced water damage, consider yourself lucky. However, it is wise to have a plan of action and a contractor to call in the event water damage takes place on your property.

Water damage is the most common type of damage you will experience in your home. There are multiple different ways water can unexpectedly cause damage. With over 50 years of experience, we have seen a wide variety of damages, however the following are the most common.
From dishwashers to washing machines, refrigerators to water heaters, there are many different appliances in your home that depend upon stable water lines. When one of the fittings slips, or a water line fails, it could cause a large amount of water to drench the drywall, insulation and subfloor.
It is common for damage to go unnoticed, which could lead to mold growth or structural damage in the future.
Sub-freezing temperatures are the norm in Michigan, which can wreak havoc on a property’s water lines. Even if you have taken the extra care to insulate your pipes, it may not be enough.
The best preventative measure to take in the winter is keep the water flowing. This can be done by slowing your faucets to a tiny drip. This simple step could save you thousands of dollars in water damage costs.
Overtime pipes can corrode and age, causing them to become brittle. One tiny crack can lead to hundreds of gallons of water damage. Luckily, this kind of damage is classified as clean water and can be dried relatively easily. Even contents that are exposed to this type of damage can be successfully dried.
In a large commercial building, it is quite common for sprinkler lines to be disrupted, either through maintenance accidents, freezing temperatures or small cracks within the water lines.
When the sprinklers are triggered accidentally, it can cause water damage within the immediate areas.
Clogged condensate lines are the primary culprits for standing water around an HVAC system. As the issue continues to remain untreated, more water can accumulate around the system, causing water damage around the surrounding areas.
Window damage, roof leaks and siding obstructions are common causes of water damage from a storm. In addition, basements that are not properly waterproofed or sealed can suffer from heavy rainwaters.
Michigan basements are notorious for utilizing sump pumps to contain groundwater and moisture from overflow.
There are a variety of reasons why a sump pump could fail. Typically, a power outage is the main factor for a failure, but could also include a frozen or clogged pipe, stuck switch, lack of maintenance, incorrect installation or even old age.
When a sewer line fails on your property, it can create quite a mess. Commonly caused by clogs in the sewer line, tree roots or a damaged sewer pipe, even the smallest failure can create hazardous conditions within the property.
