After The Flood Checklist

Water damage to buildings can be caused by a range of different mechanisms including but not limited to:

  • Ingress of water during a storm event due to rising water, blocked roof drains or failed window seals;
  • Failure of joints in HVACs (Heating, ventilating and air conditioning units) pipework;
  • Bursting or leaking pipes generally;
  • Condensation;
  • Sprinkler head activation due to inadvertent contact or malicious tampering;
  • Back flow or overflows caused by blockages in the plumbing system;
  • Human error such as leaving taps running;
  • Build up in areas prone to collecting water, such as basements, underground car parks and
    sumps; and
  • Faulty or malfunctioning appliances.

The most common form of water damage relates to water ingress arising as a result of storms or flooding, followed by plumbing system and condensation issues or human error, then HVAC failures and finally fire suppression system failures.
