Water Damage

Even though water is said to be one of the most important things required for human survival, there are times when it can cause damage to humans and their assets.

What is water damage?

In simple words, water damage can be defined as the losses that are results of intruding water either on a small or large scale.

There are basically two kinds of water damage:

  1. Slow – caused by minor accumulation of water
  2. Fast – caused by natural and instant calamities that prove to be catastrophic

What are its causes?

These are usually the unnoticed things that one ignores in the beginning or probably does not get aware about at first.


Following are some of the causes out of many:

  1. Accumulation of moisture behind the walls
  2. Collection of rain water in cracks of walls
  3. Broken hose of the dishwasher
  4. Overflow of machine
  5. Leaking roof during rainy season and so on

Insurance policies:

1) Home Insurance:

The normal damage caused to the property by various causes that occurred within home is covered under home insurance.

2) Flood Insurance:

The damage caused by flooding or bad weather is covered under flood insurance.

Ill-effects of water caused damage:

Water damage can cause a great amount of loss to property and assets within it. Although the list is long, following are some of the worst effects:

1) Loss of documents:

If there is a flood in the house or any occupied property, one may end up with loss of original documents that act as proofs of various achievements for a lifetime.

2) Damage of property:

If one has a leaking roof, the water may get accumulated in various parts of the house, causing it to crack and collapsing the entire house in a long run. In India, many houses have collapsed due to accumulation of water caused by leaking roofs during heavy rains.

3) Failure of electronic items:

Electronic items like computers, washing machines, dishwashers and so on easily get damaged due to the entry of water in their circuits or different parts. Thus, the machine stops working causing an expense to get it repaired or replaced.

4) Health Hazards:

Strange but true, water created damage can cause direct effects to a person’s health. The walls where it accumulates may have a slight change in color, causing it to look uglier than the other walls and causing the paint of the wall to melt leading to several skin allergies.

There is a high amount of spreading of molds that leads to serious effects on health like mold allergy, cough, severe migraines, continue irritating odor, red rashes on skin, constantly itchy eyes, and so on.

How can water damage be recovered?

There are various methods of recovering damages made by water. Many times the insurance policies also do not help due to their terms and conditions of agreement.

The restoration cost depends on the strength of the damage. It is usually done by the following associations:

1) Teams of property management:

This team helps in recovering the entire damage that is caused to either the private property like personal homes or public property like buildings and society,

2) Homeowners:

If the damage is not severe and can be recovered by the owners of the house themselves, they do not hire any professional for it and go ahead with the planning of restoring every minor destruction, on their own.

Water Damage Repair:

Water based damage can lead to severe losses and hence one should prefer to keep themselves insured for various destructions.
