Water damage can be sudden and accidental, and it can also happen over an extended period of time. No matter how your water damage occurred, it’s important to have your home or business restored before mildew and mold begin to grow. At All Phase Restoration, we offer water damage restoration services to the residents and business owners of Windsor, Denver, and Colorado Springs. We want to prevent you from having to call us, but we understand that accidents, flash floods, and events that are out of your control can happen because Colorado has unpredictable weather. That’s why in this post, we’ll be sharing some potential water hazards to watch out for so you can avoid water damage in your home or business altogether.

Three Types Of Water Damage To Watch Out For

Septic, sewage, and drainage clogging or back up

There are a few distinct visuals to look out for when it comes to septic, sewage, or drainage water back up. The first is standing water. In most cases, standing water is a sign of a drainage problem. It can also mean that your septic system is overflowing from beneath your yard. Whether it’s rained recently or not, standing water needs to be dealt with immediately in order for you to avoid costly damage to your home or business.

Water overflow or discharge

In most cases, a water overflow or discharge situation occurs due to a faulty appliance, burst pipe, or a leaking seal in the bathroom. If you notice a small leak, get it fixed immediately. Although a small drip every few minutes doesn’t look like much, it can turn into a big leak very quickly. A burst pipe can also be sudden and terrifying. Most people stand and watch as the free-flowing water floods their home. If you know how turn off the water to your home in the event of a burst pipe. This will momentarily limit the water damage and give you a chance to call a plumber to fix the pipe.

Flood water

When Colorado gets more than the average annual rainfall, flooding can become an issue quickly. The channels, creeks, rivers, ponds, and lakes can overflow, causing water to flow where it shouldn’t. The same is true for street sewage and drainage infrastructure. In the instance of a torrential downpour, water can find its way from the street, through yards, and into your basement. It’s best to find out if you’re in a suspected flood zone and prepare appropriately in case of flooding during our wet season.
