Flooding in your home can be quite stressful and the sooner help arrives the quicker the calming begins. Water is the most destructive things that can happen to a home and repairs can be expensive, often running into the thousands. The longer water sits the more damage it does so the most important thing to do is find the source and stop the water from coming in. Water can come into a home by a multitude of ways and thus has different categories and classes of damage. Let’s go over some of the different ways water damage occurs, the classes of water, the categories of damage and some helpful tips to prevent some of the ways that flood damage occurs.
Ways that flooding may happen
- Broken Pipes
- Sewer Backup
- Faulty Appliances
- River Flooding
- Cracks To Foundations
- Overflowed Sinks And Bathtubs
- Leaky Roofs
- Sump Pump Failure
- Human Error/Sabotage
There is not a lot of sump pump failures in Garland, TX 75041 due to the lack of basements. However, that is the leading cause of flooding nationwide. Most flooding in Garland happens as a result of either broken pipes or sewer backup. There is a huge difference between the two water sources obviously. Water from a broken pipes is clean water, and thus category one, which is the preferred source if you had to choose one. Clean water takes longer to cause contamination issues such as mold and mildew. However, if clean water comes into contact with unsavory contaminants as it spreads then it can quickly go up in categories. For instance, if the clean water travels over a dirty carpet that is loaded with animal urine then that water would now be considered category three water. Clean water over a clean floor is much safer than water that travels over animal waste.
Sewer backup is the worst kind of water that can come into your home, for the obvious reasons. Sewage is gross and unsanitary, and therefore is category three water. There is literally nothing in a home that can make this water worse. The only good news is that this type of flooding usually involves less water than a broken pipe. The less water the less affected space typically. Sewage water is by rule only properly cleaned by removing all soft building materials that are affected. Drywall cannot be saved if it is hit directly by sewage and must be removed. The framing should be washed before drying. If sewage or other category three waters hit framing it will introduce contaminants all the way through the framing. The framing should be pressure washed so that the contaminants can be pushed out by clean sanitary water. I know it sounds bad to reintroduce water into a flood job but it is also the best way to effectively clean. You would rather dry a clean water flood than a dirty water flood.
Some of the best ways to prevent flooding in your home:
- Maintain your plumbing
- Keep your drains clear of debris
- Keep your gutters clean
- Replace leaky faucets and pipes
- Replace appliances that drip
