Interior water damage have mainly three sources:
1. Interior plumbing leaks
2. Excessive humidity levels and Mold
3. Rain water infiltration
Interior Plumbing is one of the major source of interior water damage.
1. Hot and cold water supply pipes are usually buried in the floor slab. If it starts to leak, usually you would not realize it immediately. It will slowly spread in the slab and when it gets to a wall, the visible water damage starts to show.
One simple way to check if there is a leak on the supply is to check the water meter overnight. If it moves overnight without any water being used, you know there is a problem.
2. Bathroom and kitchen drains can also be the source of water damage if the drain pipe is damaged
3. Waterproofing of the showers and baths: This also a very common source of water damage. The silicone around the bath and at the base of showers has to be perfect to avoid water infiltration. The joints should be renewed periodically.
