Common Causes of Water Damage in Roxbury Buildings

Water entering your Roxbury home causes immediate water damage. Any cleanup delay leads to secondary damage to contents and structure. Mold infestations may occur, carpets are soaked, and hardwood floors swell and buckle. Porous materials such as drywall and pressed wood products absorb moisture, swell and lose integrity causing permanent damage if cleanup is delayed.

SERVPRO provides water damage cleanup for homeowners in Roxbury. We respond in less than four hours from your call. We aim to minimize the initial and secondary damage from water leaks into your home.

Homeowners are surprised to learn they have water in their homes caused by storms in the area. Common causes of water in homes leading to water damage include water entering due to heavy rainstorms as well as other domestic situations:

  • Stormy conditions lead to roof leaks and broken windows allowing rainwater to enter the home.
  • Clogged rain gutters filled with leaves and debris causes water to back up under the shingles
  • Sewage backup caused by debris and backflow
  • Pipes bursting due to age
  • Leaking plumbing systems
  • Faulty appliances such as dishwashers, washing machines, and dryers with moisture systems
  • Plugged toilets
  • AC systems malfunctioning
  • Water overflow in sinks and tubs

All of these conditions can lead to extensive damage to your home. Storms can introduce hundreds of gallons of water into your home in minutes. SERVPRO provides board-up services to cover windows and roof damage. We deploy high-capacity pumps to remove excess water. We use water extraction systems to remove water from carpets and hardwood flooring. Our high-capacity dehumidification and air movers quickly lower the humidity and dry your home.
