WATER DAMAGE &
When water gets where it shouldn’t, it can cause serious damage. The longer you wait, the worse the damage can get.
This is true for small leaks and major floods. If you’ve noticed any water damage, call us right away. This is not a do-it-yourself situation. A small 3-millimetre crack in a pipe can release 950 litres of water a day. We are experts who can explain what’s going on and—with you—figure out what needs to happen next.
HOW CAN WATER DAMAGE OCCUR IN MY HOME?
Water damage comes from many sources. Broken toilets can cause flooding on a top floor that seeps downward. An overflowing river can flood a basement, damage that can creep upward. Broken pipes and bad plumbing can wreak havoc. And in our damp climate, moisture can be a major issue in buildings. Improper cladding or a faulty window seal can let in and then trap water. Whatever the cause, water damage can be devastating to your property and your health.
HOW CAN WATER DAMAGE IMPACT MY HOME?
Water damage can cause mould, rust steel, de-laminate floors, rot wood, and destroy belongings. It also attacks the systems within the building, such as heating and electrical. And then there are sewage issues—such as backflow and clogged toilets—which come with their own specific concerns.
All water damage needs to be dealt with immediately. At Barclay, we know how to handle the remediation of water damage. Our team will start by addressing the source and isolating the affected area.
