What Qualifies as Water Damage?

Water damage is, as the name implies, damage that is resulting from unwanted water. This damage can come in many forms, ranging from mold to damaged homes and possessions. In an area like Pasadena, where there is low risk of flooding, rain does not occur in high enough quantities to cause a lot of damage but the main issues with water damage stems from old houses and leaky pipes. When a pipe or a water fixture begins to get old, it will (obviously) begin to wear. Once worn, pipes may begin to get micro-fractures which can lead to bigger problems down the road. Water that has made its way into the home can wreak havoc. Household possessions can very easily be damaged. If water gets into the walls it can cause structural problems in addition to increasing the likelihood of mold and waterborne bacteria.

What are Some Quick Water Damage Solutions?

There are a number of quick solutions to water damage.
