Water Damage

Leaking water heater in Ventura, CA Call your local SERVPRO in Ventura 805-507-5507

Water damage refers to a variety of losses caused by water intruding into a material or system, allowing destructive processes such as rotting of wood, mold growth, bacteria growth, rusting of steel, swelling of composite woods, de-lamination of materials such as plywood, and so on to attack the material or system.

Water spots that gradually ruin a surface may be imperceptibly slow and minor, or it may be sudden and disastrous, such as broken pipes and flooding. Water damage, regardless of how quickly it occurs, is a major cause of property loss.

The costs of water damage and the process of water damage repair may or may not be covered by an insurance policy.

A broken dishwasher hose, a washing machine overflow, a dishwasher leak, damaged/leaking pipes, flood waters, groundwater seepage, building envelope failures (leaking roof, windows, doors, siding, etc.) and clogged toilets are all potential sources of water damage. Plumbing leaks account for 13.7 percent of all water consumed in the home today, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.  On average, leaks waste 10,000 gallons of water per year per household in the United States. A pipe crack as small as 1/8-inch can leak up to 250 gallons of water every day!

Ventura: The Difference Between Commercial & Residential Restoration

When it comes to residential and commercial water losses, there is a clear difference as far as the size of the structure. However, it goes beyond just the size of the building.

Commercial buildings can typically have multiple units. Apartment complexes or business parks fall under this category. Multiple units means we have multiple tenants or owners. Each tenant will more than likely file a claim with their insurance provider. This can quickly turn into multiple point of contacts that will need to be constantly informed of progress.

Another difference between these types of water losses, are office settings. There are businesses that cannot completely shut down production and we must find ways to keep them operational while dealing with a water disaster. For example we are always mindful of keeping a clear walkway, minimizing noise levels as much as possible and moving quickly so you can get back to normalcy. These factors can be tricky to accommodate when completing mitigation services.

Here at SERVPRO of Northwest Ventura County, our team is trained to accommodate the above scenarios. Click here for more information on commercial water damage.
