Water Damage Restoration Services
Water Damage Restoration Services in Houston
Flooding is the most common natural disaster in the United States. Areas like the Greater Houston Area often see flood events from heavy rainfall, tropical storms, and hurricanes. The proximity to the Gulf of Mexico makes Houston extremely susceptible to flooding. Just a few inches of water can cause thousands of dollars in damages, which makes flooding a deadly disaster. However, your home could flood from a source within rather than an external force!
Houston has seen several major hurricanes make landfall. Hurricanes bring severe damage and destruction in their wake. Depending on the category, a hurricane can cause massive destruction through its path. The strong winds from the massive storm push water toward the coast. When there is an excess of water on the coast, it has nowhere to go but on the land. So, the water creeps into homes, businesses, roads, and other areas.
Wind and water can have a significant impact on your home. The wind can rip up parts of your roofing, allowing water to seep in. Then, the flood will move inside from the excess rain or water pushed up from the hurricane. These elements cause severe damage to your home or business. Water damage is especially severe because of the issues it can create if left untreated. Moisture paired with the Houston humidity creates the perfect breeding ground for mold. Water damage also weakens the structure making it more dangerous for loved ones, employees, or customers.
Once the hurricane has passed, the wind has died, and the water recedes, it is time to get to work.

Water Damage From Busted Pipe
The most common cause of water damage comes from within the home. This may come to a surprise for many, but you are at a higher risk of flooding from a pipe inside your home than a storm. Pipes can burst for a variety of reasons. Common causes include:
- freezing temperature
- water pressure
- age or corrosion
- collision or movement
Freezing temperatures are rare in the Houston area, but are certainly a cause of busted pipes. A clogged toilet or garbage disposal can quickly increase the pressure within a pipe. At first, it may leak a few droplets of water, but as time goes on, it gets worse. Eventually, it bursts and creates severe damage underneath the sink, in a wall, or in some other area. Of course, the age of your pipes also determines their quality. Corrosion over time allows them to fail once they meet their match. Finally, a collision with a piece of equipment in your yard or movement of the pipe can create damage on the outside seal.
Regardless of the reason your pipe busts, ASAP Restoration has the skill to locate the cause and restore your home or business. In fact, it does not matter what the cause of the water damage is.
