Every winter, numerous homes fall victim to ice and water damage, and the last thing anyone wants to deal with is a major home renovation during the holiday season. That’s why disaster preparation is important and to be aware of these common factors. You should also know what you can do to prevent them from causing water damage to your home; and save some money in the long run.
When Pipes Burst
Below freezing temperatures can easily lead to a situation where one of your pipes burst. This happens due to the water inside expanding as it gets close to freezing. This increases the pressure inside the pipe. High pipe pressure that can’t be contained, can lead to pipe fractures.
Keeping your pipes warm enough to stay above freezing point can prevent this from happening. Read how in our article on hidden home hazards.
As you’re well aware, a flooded basement is no joke at all. Basement flooding is an ongoing issue for a lot of homeowners. However, this problem can easily be solved by fixing a crack in the wall or getting new windows. In more severe cases, a sump pump may be required.
Severe Water Damage
Freezing rain and ice storms can cause serious water damage to your property. This weakens your home’s structural integrity and can cost you an arm and a leg. If not dealt with in a timely fashion, significant secondary damage can develop. This can be in the form of water damage, resulting from melting ice as temperatures rise in the spring and summer seasons.
Sump Pump Failure
This is another common issue that you may encounter as a homeowner. We have more information on this topic in our article on why sump pumps fail and what to do next.
Increased Mould Growth
Water damage can also lead to mould growth if left untreated, which results in a higher cost of remediation. This can create serious health risks. With professional remediation services from WINMAR, we can immediately assess and eliminate mould, prevent further property damage, and create a clean and healthy environment for you and your family. For information on how to identify which species are harmful to you, read our blog article about mould vs toxic mould.

A toilet overflowed or the fridge water line leaked and your floor is covered with water. Although these situations may not seem like a big deal, there are two main reasons why they are. Action needs to be taken immediately.
1.) Water damage is progressive- This means that once moisture has made contact with the surfaces, materials, and belongings in your home, it will continue to cause damage until it has been removed and dried out entirely. Even just waiting a few hours for the water removal and drying process could mean a significant and costly amount of damage could be done to your home.
2.) Mold- If the water damage restoration process is put off and standing water sits, mold can start to grow. This is not only harmful to your health and safety, but it could cause additional damage to your property.
