- Toilet Related Water Damage - The two most common types of toilet related issues we encounter are toilet supply line leaks and toilet overflows or backups.
Air Conditioner - Air conditioner coils have a tendency buildup condensation and drip. The condensed moisture should be discharged safely outside of the home or into a drain leading to the sewer. The harder the air conditioning unit works the more water it tends to have to discharge. Sometimes this water overflows from the air conditioner condensation drip pan causing damages that can vary quite considerably. Hot Water Heater - As water heaters age, they will quite often times develop sediment in the tank. This sediment can cause the water heater to fail by blocking drain lines, hoses, and other components. These types of failures often times result in water leaking from the unit and causing untold amounts of damage.Appliances - This category would include appliances commonly found in the kitchen or washroom like refrigerators, ice makers, dishwashers, and washing machines.Leaking Pipe - Causes of pipe leaks are just about numerous as pine trees on Kennesaw Mountain but the most common types of issues we see are maintenance related and pipe bursts during extremely cold weather.
- Toilet Supply Line - This type of leak is probably the most common causes of toilet related water damage and in most cases would be considered a Class 1 Water Damage.
- Toilet Overflows & Backups - These type of water damages act exactly as they sound, resulting often times with highly contaminated water or sewage being expelled from the toilet. Due to the nature of these types of water damage they would be categorized as a Class 3 Water Damage.
