Why You Might Need Santa Clarita Valley Water Damage Restoration

Water damage can be caused by unexpected sources, not just natural disasters or floods. Routine checks on appliances and systems are essential to avoid severe damage to your home and belongings. Don’t underestimate the potential harm water leaks can cause, so take action now to protect your home. 

The Many Faces of Water Damage 

Water damage restoration in Santa Clarita Valley homes can result from many disasters. Since water damage remains one of our restoration team’s standard callouts, we stay ready and able to tackle water removal, structural drying, and cleanup immediately. Homeowners should understand some of the common causes for needing this restoration, including: 

  1. Burst Pipes 

Even in Southern California, older homes with rusty or weak pipes can experience water damage from burst pipes. A clogged or blocked plumbing system can also cause increased water pressure, leading to burst pipes. To prevent additional water damage, keeping plumbing lines clean and locating the main valves in your home to shut them off immediately in case of a pipe burst is crucial. 

  1. Plumbing 

Faulty plumbing can cause gradual damage to your home. Therefore, it is recommended that you check faucets and accessible pipes routinely and address any issues when you see them.  

  1. Appliance Malfunction 

Most individuals use home appliances daily. However, keeping a vigilant eye out for leaks that lead to potential water damage is crucial. It can escalate quickly and go unnoticed until it’s too late. 

  • Water Heater—If you suspect water leakage in your home, check the valves at the top of your water heater for rust or corrosion. 
  • Dishwasher—Faulty hoses, improper installation, and damaged doors can make your beloved appliance a nightmare. 
  • HVAC—Maintain your HVAC system to avoid severe water damage. With warmer temperatures and frequent use of your AC, ensure your system is ready. 
  • Washing Machine— Replace hoses if they are over five years old. Improper drainage can lead to flooding, so ensure your drain pipe is correctly aligned.
