Common Causes for Residential Water Damage

By being aware of these common causes, homeowners can take proactive measures to prevent water damage and minimize its impact on their property and belongings. Regular maintenance, timely repairs, and preparedness for emergencies can help mitigate the risks associated with residential water damage.


Fires to a home or business can result in significant water damage due to the pressurized water used by firefighters to extinguish flames. The process of fire extinguishing can lead to flooding within the property.

Sewage Backups

Sewage backups can pose a serious risk to your health and home structure, causing flooding with gray and black water. These backups often occur due to blockages or malfunctions in the sewage system.


When a bathtub, sink, or any other water appliance is left running and unattended, it can overflow, resulting in water damage to the surrounding area.

Natural Disasters

Events like hurricanes, tornadoes, and heavy rain can cause widespread water damage to residential properties. Floodwaters from natural disasters can infiltrate homes, leading to extensive damage to structures and belongings.

Busted Pipes

Pipe-related issues, including leaks, frozen pipes, and outdated plumbing systems, are common culprits of residential water damage. Leaks can develop over time or suddenly burst, causing water to flood into the property and potentially causing significant damage if not addressed promptly. Frozen pipes are particularly common in colder climates and can burst under pressure, while outdated plumbing systems may be more prone to leaks and failures.

What Is Water Damage Restoration & Repair?

At Serclean, our comprehensive water damage restoration process encompasses all stages of restoring your home to its pre-loss condition, including any repairs to your home or furnishings. See our water damage repair and restoration process below.

Water Removal vs Water Damage Restoration

Water removal, also known as water extraction, is the initial step in water restoration. Using advanced drying equipment, we swiftly eliminate floodwaters and any residual debris. However, merely extracting water isn’t sufficient for complete remediation.

Water Mitigation vs Water Damage Restoration

Water mitigation services are meant to protect your home from future potential water damage. At Serclean, our mitigation services include sealing appliances, inspecting pipes, and implementing other preventative measures to protect your home against any water damage.

Serclean’s Water Damage Restoration Process

At Serclean, we understand the distress that water damage can bring to your home or business. That’s why we’ve perfected a comprehensive water damage repair process to efficiently restore your property. Here’s a detailed look at each step:

1. Water Extraction

The first step in water restoration is removing any standing water from your property using advanced extraction equipment. Once the area is clear, we can assess damages and start debris removal.

2. Debris Removal & Demolition

At Serclean, our team will clear out any debris or damaged materials from the affected areas to ensure a clean and safe environment. In cases of severe water damage, unsalvageable structures or materials may need to be demolished to prevent mold growth and structural issues. Our skilled technicians perform controlled demolition as necessary, always with safety and efficiency in mind.

3. Drying Out

Thorough drying is crucial to prevent mold and mildew growth as it can start to grow in as little as 24 hours. We utilize state-of-the-art drying equipment and high-powered portable extractors and vacuums to completely dry out water-damaged areas, including walls, floors, and furnishings.

4. Content Restoration

We understand the sentimental and monetary value of your belongings. Our content restoration specialists carefully assess and save as much of your personal property as possible. We also provide climate-controlled storage units while your home or business is being restored.

5. Cleaning & Sanitizing

We clean every inch of your house and eliminate odors, harmful chemicals, allergens, and anything that can affect your safety and health. In cases where mold or fungal growth is a concern, antimicrobials may be applied to prevent or eliminate mold spores.

6. Reconstruction

Once the drying and cleaning stages are complete, we start reconstructing the building to its pre-loss condition. This can include repairing drywall, replacing flooring, rebuilding damaged structures, and more. We will also conduct a moisture test to verify the dryness of your electrical system, inside drywall, and other hard-to-reach areas to ensure full restoration.

Types of Water Contamination

When dealing with water damage to a home or building, one of the first things that a restoration company is going to check for is the water contamination level. We measure flood water in three categories that determine how the restoration process is going to go. The type of water can affect the scope of work, the equipment needed, and the cost of the services. The three types we categorize water in are:

Type One: Clear Water – Clear water usually comes from water supply lines or another clean water source.

Type Two: Gray Water – Gray water is dirty water from sources such as bathtubs, sump pumps, dishwashers, washer machines, and other day-to-day appliances.

Type Three: Black Water – Black water is considered the dirtiest water and can come from sources such as toilets, sewage lines, and natural disasters such as hurricanes.

Other Hazards To Consider in Water Damages

  • Standing Water: Standing water could be contaminated and needs to be removed before any other repairs or restoration work takes place.
  • Asbestos: Exert caution when working with homes built in or before the 70s as they could contain asbestos which should be left alone. Once asbestos is disturbed and enters the atmosphere, then the building becomes hazardous.
  • Lead: Take extra precautions for homes with lead-based paint, lead abatement is another issue that becomes very problematic in the water damage repair and restoration process.
  • Mold: If water damages are not dealt with promptly, then the leftover moisture can lead to mold growth.
