Water damage is one of the most common and worst side effects of water leakage or flooding in a basement. Water damage is also one of the leading causes of home insurance claims, and it is responsible for millions of dollars in damages every year.

Here are three things you need to know about water damage to protect your house and respond correctly in the event of an emergency:

Type of Water

Rainwater, freshwater, and sewage water are the three types of water that cause damage at home. And combating them all requires a unique strategy. Sewage backups can cause secondary damages. Unfortunately, it is often easy to tell the difference since it smells exactly as expected. Experts in water damage restoration, on the other hand, will have the required tools and equipment to handle any water-related concerns that may develop safely.


Although the water has been evacuated from your property, moisture may still be lurking in the shadows that you are unaware of. Mold can grow in locations like crawl spaces and under floorboards due to this. Mold can cause secondary damages to a home or commercial structure. Have a mold prevention professional evaluate it to guarantee mold isn't growing in your property
