Marietta, Georgia, home of the “Big Chicken” and one of the largest cities in the Metro Atlanta area. With the number of homes and businesses in Marietta, it is inevitable that a large number of water damages take place in Cobb County.
It’s not just heavy rains and flooding that can cause water damage to your property. It is once again that time of year when the weather begins to turn colder and water pipes can freeze and burst. A busted water pipe can dump hundreds of gallons of water into your home or business in very little time. Many homeowners are stunned at the amount of water that can invade their home from one little break in a pipe. Busted pipes in the winter time are by no means a problem only experienced in the northern portion of the country.
Other times pipes can burst due to old age, faulty manufacturing or human miscalculation. Many older homes still have metal piping that, in time, can rust and create extensive water damage to your property. There have also been instances where homes have had a water pipe “time bomb” waiting to go off for years. It’s not unusual for a nail to be hammered into the plumbing of a home while it is being built. Over the course of time the nail creates rust which in turn causes the pipe to burst and create a water damage that was years in the making.
Leaky toilets, broken water lines or ice maker lines, faulty washing machine hoses and overflowing tubs or just a few other causes of residential flooding. When you think about it there are numerous ways to experience flooding that do not include an exterior source.
If you do experience a water intrusion to your home then extraction is the first course of action. Water removal is vital for proper structural drying. Once the excessive amounts of water have been removed dehumidifiers and air movers can be brought in for the drying process to get underway. Proper drying is essential in order to avoid any future issues such as mold growth.
