The five most common causes of water damage in Orange NSW, Cowra NSW, Forbes NSW, and Bathurst NSW are:

  1. Air Conditioner: Improperly maintained or malfunctioning air conditioners can lead to water damage. Moisture buildup within the A/C unit, if not properly drained, can result in slow leaks that damage flooring, drywall, and potentially cause mould growth.
  2. Dishwasher: Leaks from dishwashers can occur if they are not properly sealed or if the wrong soap is used. It’s important to address any leaks promptly and repair or replace the dishwasher to avoid costly water damage repairs in the kitchen.
  3. Washing Machine: Regularly inspect your washing machine, checking beneath and behind the unit for any signs of leaks. Ensure all fittings are securely connected and address any water leakage promptly. Consider replacing older washing machines that frequently cause issues.
  4. Leaking Pipes: Leaky pipes are a common cause of water damage in homes. Even a loose-fitting pipe under the sink or in the bathroom can lead to water pooling and damage. If you notice water pooling or experience spikes in your water bill, call a plumber to address the leaks and prevent further damage to your home.
  5. Clogged Drains: Clogged drains can lead to water damage and mould growth if left unattended. Toilet clogs can result in water backing up into showers, sinks, or bathroom floors, posing health risks. Seek professional help for frequent drain clogs to prevent water damage in your home.

To avoid these common causes of water damage, it’s essential to perform regular maintenance on your appliances, address leaks promptly, and seek professional help when needed. Taking proactive steps can help protect your home from water damage and save you from costly repairs in the future.
