Where Water Damage Might Be Lurking In Your Home

water damage cleanup anchorageWater damage can happen in nearly any area of your home. Oftentimes, water damage goes un-detected for long periods of time because of where it happens, and how minor the water source is. Slow leaks in areas that don’t see a lot of foot traffic are likely to suffer extensive water damage and mold. When water damage is found inside your home, you need to contact water damage cleanup professionals immediately to help clean up the damage and restore your property.

Common Areas Of Water Damage In Your Anchorage Home

In Anchorage, and other areas of Alaska like Mat-Su Valley, water damage is not something that is uncommon. Water damage can happen from malfunctioning hot water heaters, dishwashers, and washing machines. Overflowing toilets, bathtubs and sinks often cause indoor flooding disasters. Heavy rains can even contribute to water damage. But problems with the plumbing inside your walls can cause water damage that you might not be aware of for a long time.

Wall Water Damage

Inside your walls, your plumbing pipes are working everytime the water is being used. Pipes can burst open and cause major water damage pretty fast, but they often develop slow leaks and slowly cause water damage all around the location. This can show up as discoloration in your walls, bubbling/peeling of paint, softness in the drywall, etc. These signs need to be addressed right away as the structure of your home is in jeopardy.

Rooms That Don’t See Heavy Foot Traffic

Basement, attics and crawlspaces are often areas that are affected by water, but don’t get the help that they need right away. That’s because these areas aren’t visited all the time. By the time the issue is caught, the room often smells heavy of mold and the damage has spread.

Underneath Sinks

Underneath sinks and inside cabinets are areas that might experience water damage without you noticing right away. Don’t worry. The damage can be cleaned up and repaired quickly – if the damage has spread through the cabinets, TCM Restoration can resolve the problem and make sure the area is put back together perfectly after it is cleaned up.

Water damage must be handled immediately to minimize the damage. If you discover water damage that has gone unnoticed for some time, be sure to contact the water damage cleanup professionals at TCM Restoration.
