Water damage is one of the most common causes of property damage. It doesn’t take much to cause significant damage to your home or business, and the consequences can be devastating. We know that water damage can occur in many different ways, but we also know that it’s often caused by mechanical failures. Let’s look at some examples of how this might happen. 

Mechanical Failure

Mechanical failures are the cause of many water damage incidents. A broken dishwasher, leaking toilet, and burst pipes can all lead to flooding in your home or business. If you suspect that your property has been affected by a mechanical failure, contact us right away!

We provide emergency response services for all types of water damage restoration scenarios: flooded kitchens, basements, and bathrooms; sewer backups; rainstorms that cause roof leaks or tree damage from high winds. We also have advanced restoration equipment designed specifically for drying out your home quickly so that your family is safe and dry as soon as possible after an incident occurs.

Structural Damage

Structural damage refers to the structural components of a building that support the walls and ceilings. In a water damage event, structural components can be affected by moisture or high temperatures. Water will cause wood to rot, steel beams to rust and concrete floors/walls to crack.

If you see signs of structural damage in your home after a flood or fire then you should seek out professional help immediately as this type of damage can lead to further problems such as mold growth or even collapse if left untreated.

Broken Pipes and Fixtures

Broken pipes and fixtures are another common cause of water damage. This can happen as a result of age, corrosion, and loose joints. Pipe joints are the weakest part of your plumbing system and often become loose over time due to wear and tear or improper installation. When this happens, it allows water to leak out through the joint or crack in your pipe wall–which will eventually lead to flooding if left unattended.


If you’re ever in a situation where you think there might be water damage, it’s important to act quickly. If left untreated, even small amounts of water can cause irreparable damage to your home or business. We are here to help. Make us your one and only call- 630-345-6878.
