As one of the most common insurance claims, water damage often results from plumbing issues, appliance problems and natural disasters.
When storms with heavy rainfall and fast-moving winds can happen suddenly in Brisbane, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast, it’s important to monitor any damage resulting from them. If inundated with flood water, properties in areas prone to flooding are at risk of serious contamination and decay.
Issues with corrosion, poor installation and increased valve pressures can increase the likelihood of burst pipes, leading to significant plumbing problems and water damage in properties. Determining the exact cause of damage is essential for correct mitigation, as well as preventing future issues.
If left without effective mediation, high levels of humidity in south-east Queensland contribute to additional damage. Mould and excessive moisture resulting from water damage can impact the structural integrity of properties.
Given the significant damage that can occur, it requires a fast and comprehensive response. Removing all moisture effectively is key to preventing future deterioration and ongoing safety issues – such as faulty wiring and foundation rotting.
