Common Causes of Loss

While you can only hope that nothing ever goes wrong with your house or business, it is vital to be prepared for the worst. When a strong Florida storm comes through Tampa Bay or a pipe bursts inside your bathroom, it can cause severe and costly damage. Here are some of the top causes of loss to a home or business.

Wind Storm Damage

One of the most common sources of damage is wind-related. Storm gusts can damage roofs, uproot huge trees, or even send outdoor furniture flying through windows.

Nonweather-Related Water Damage

When you think of water damage, you may think the weather is the most common type of damage. It is actually residential water inside your house that causes the most damage. Equipment like the dishwasher, washing machine and toilets can cause leaks. Know where the water sources are and perform routine inspections under sinks to prevent this type of damage. If your washing machine has a rubber hose, you should check it every year to make sure it’s not wearing out or consider replacing it with a stainless steel one. If you are going to be away from home for an extended period of time, consider turning off the main water valve for prevention and peace of mind.

Weather-Related Water Damage

Heavy torrential rains and flooding can cause significant damage to your home or business. There are a few things you can do to prevent damage. Inspect your roof regularly, so that is in good condition. Remove and replace any shingles that are old and worn. Direct your downspouts away from the house and clean your gutters regularly.

Hail Damage

There are a few things that you can do to prevent hail storms from striking and damaging any items. Park your car under a carport or in a garage if possible. Move any susceptible items in the yard to hail damage, like patio furniture, indoors or under a covered area to prevent damage.

Fire Damage

Fire damage is devastating, costly, and extremely disruptive to an individual and family. Keep your eye out for frayed wires and avoid using combustible items like oven mitts around open flames.

Mold Damage

Mold is a serious issue in a home. It can present a significant health hazard for anyone living inside your home, especially those with asthma or allergies. There are a lot of varieties of mold, and you need an expert mold remediation company to remove it safely.
