How To Stop Water Damage Before It Happens?
Almost 93% of all water damage in Alhambra, CA could have been prevented with the right knowledge. How can you protect your home from residential water damage? Here are a few ways to prepare.
- Check For Damaged Plumbing Pipes
Plumbing systems in older homes are susceptible to stoppages. To prevent plumbing problems before they start, be on the alert for pipe cracks, bulges, stains, and other signs of moisture.
- Look For Hidden Leaks
If you find a leak, it could be a sign that there is damage. Unusual spikes in your water bill could indicate a hidden leak. Look out for pipes in areas prone to collecting water, such as crawl spaces, cabinets, and attics. If you see any signs of dripping water, call a plumber right away to avoid bigger problems.
- Keep An Eye On Your Appliances
As appliances age, their parts can rust and their hoses can weaken. Check your dishwasher, washing machine, and your fridge frequently for leaks or worn-out parts.
- Drain Clogs
Bathroom and sink drains can clog with dirt, grease, hair, and other substances. If left unchecked, clogged drains can cause damage to other places in the home.
Does My Homeowners Insurance Cover Plumbing and Pipe Leaks?
Your homeowners insurance policy should cover any sudden and unexpected water damage due to a plumbing malfunction or broken pipe. However, most home insurance policies exclude damage to your home that occurred gradually, such as a slow, constant leak, as well as damage due to regional flooding.
Additionally, some types of damage that are related to water damage, such as mold, may be excluded from your standard policy depending on the cause. However, if you want coverage, you can typically add additional coverage as optional riders.

Water Damage Categories
There are three categories of water that cause water damage. They are defined by the IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) as Category 1, Category 2, and Category 3. The IICRC also defines the proper methods of water damage remediation, based on the hazards presented by each category of water.
- Category 1
Category 1 water, aka “clean water,” comes from a clean source. This water, before it comes into contact with outside bacteria and other matter, poses no health risk to humans or animals by exposure to skin, by inhaling air adjacent to the water, or through ingestion.
- Category 2
Category 2 water is also known as “grey water.” This water contains a moderate level of contamination, but the contamination is non-toxic. Exposure to or ingestion of grey water can cause discomfort or illness in humans and animals, and should be avoided.
- Category 3
Category 3 water is the highest-risk level of water contamination. This is also known as “black water.” It can cause serious illness or death to humans and animals as a result of exposure or consumption. Black water damage is highly unsanitary, and should only be dealt with by certified water remediation specialists. If you must handle black water, take extreme precautions.
