Water Damage in Sacramento
People rarely think about water damage in places where it doesn’t rain or flood regularly. Sacramento does get about 20 inches of rain a year, but that’s 18 inches below the national average. Apart from the winter rain, the thing that will cause the most water damage to a home or business is your plumbing system.
How Does Water Damage Happen?
Water damage happens when a home or business is unprepared to deal with an influx of water appearing where it shouldn’t. For example, water lines bring water to a home or business and should hold water without leaking. When that pipe leaks, however, water gets into places where the infrastructure is unprepared. Metal and plaster react to water very differently, and water that soaks into wall insulation can encourage mold and mildew growth (which causes other issues).
Sacramento rarely has to worry about frozen pipes, so most plumbing damage comes from lack of plumbing maintenance. Older pipes usually have years of mineral buildup inside the pipes, and if you still have galvanized iron plumbing, that plaque will wear down the galvanized coating. Exposed galvanized iron piping can not only be toxic but will also rust, which will eventually wear a hole in your pipe.
How Can You Tell If You Have Water Damage?
You can tell you have water damage by inspecting your home or business building. The most obvious signs are brown spots or discoloration on the ceiling or walls. If water has been leaking for some time, a stain often indicates that water has leaked in a particular area and then dried. This situation can sometimes happen if the source of the water is periodic.
You might be able to detect water damage by the smell. Water damage encourages mold and mildew growth, so if you start to smell something musty or mildew, you could have a leak somewhere in your home. Additionally, a higher water bill than usual can indicate the presence of a leak. If you suspect you might have water damage in your home, give us a call! We can inspect your home or business thoroughly to determine if there is a problem.
How Much Does Mold Remediation Cost?
The cost of mold remediation varies. Depending on a variety of factors, mold remediation could cost anywhere from $500-$6,000. The extensive cost variation depends on the size of the job. Small spaces could cost around $500-$1,500, while larger spaces can cost $3,000-$6,000. However, some of this expense could be covered by your homeowner’s insurance. We offer mold remediation services when you need them. As soon as you notice a problem, give us a call. Our specialists are available 24/7 to take your call, and we’re ready to begin restoring your property when it’s convenient for you.
