What Causes Water Damage?

As important as it is to our lives, water can cause damages on so many levels. Water damage happens when water manages to creep into parts of a property where it is not meant to go. Such intrusion leads to mold and bacteria growth, swelling and rotting wood, rusting of property, among other disruptive processes.

Some of the most common causes of water damage include natural sources. These situations occur due to severe weather, such as floods, hurricanes, thunderstorms, and others. These natural disasters are not daily occurrences, but they sometimes cause water damage to property in the unlikely chance they happen.

Clogged roof gutters and blocked drains are other common causes of water damage. Occasionally roof gutters get clogged with many types of debris such as leaves, branches, etc. This debris cause blockages that do not allow water floor off the property, causing water damage in parts of the building. Likewise, if drains in the kitchen, bathrooms, and toilets are blocked, the resulting water buildup causes water damage.

Other common causes of water damage include leaky, broken, and loose fitted pipes, leaks from the washing machine, condensation from the air conditioning unit, malfunctioning sprinkler systems, and leaking water heaters.

Out of all these causes, the most frequent causes of water damage are broken pipes and overflow issues from faucets that were left open for too long. It is always best to address water damage as soon as you notice the problem; else, it could lead to more expensive property damage in your Los Gatos, CA property.

This matter will require the assistance of the insurance company in most cases. So we always make sure to work with your respective insurance firm before we move forward with water removal and water restoration on your property.

What causes fire and smoke damage?

Any physical damage that occurs in a property due to burning is called fire damage. Fire damage could result from flames that burn parts of a building; it could also be due to smoke and other acerbic substances that are sometimes emitted during fire outbreaks.

Common fire damage causes include grease fires often started while cooking in the kitchen. This is one of the most frequent causes of fires in residential buildings. Occasionally, fires are also started by people who forgot to turn off the heat source after cooking.

Open flames are another frequent cause of fire damage in buildings. This is mostly from burning candles not adequately placed.

Electrical malfunction is also an occasional source of fire damage in residential and business properties. Once in a while, a power strip could be overloaded or wires and circuits connected improperly. Faulty light fixtures are also capable of starting electrical fires. These fires are rare and often prevented by conducting regular maintenance checkups on buildings.

Lastly, a few other heat sources can cause fire damage, especially space heaters, which can start fires if placed too close to certain materials such as fabrics or flammable items.

Fires do not happen without smoke, so you’re also likely to find smoke damage wherever there is fire damage. Smoke damage may not physically destroy a room the way fires do, but they are also capable of causing great structural harm. Smoke damage is caused by a combination of smoke and soot, leaving nasty marks and lingering smells in a building.

    One Call Services is one of the most professional companies I've worked with in terms of having work done in and around my home. The employees showed great integrity and thoroughness in their estimates and work quality. They were friendly and honest. I would highly recommend them for mold and water damage removal and treatment.

    -Beth Bordelon

    What Our Customers Say

    When the scheduled inspector was not able to make our appointment, the regional manager, Marco Herrera, met the need. He was thorough and helpful and explained things we needed to know about controlling mold in our house. Turned out we didn't need further professional intervention. Instead of trying to talk us into expensive contract work that we didn't need he gave helpful advice based upon his wealth of experience. He even refused a gift-card for his trouble, and instead asked for our rating and recommendation, which I gladly give!
