Broken HVAC Units
If you don’t have your Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (or HVAC) unit serviced on a regular basis, you’ll likely be more prone to leaks and water damage. This includes serious problems like mold and mildew growth.
Clogged Rain Gutters and Downspouts
When your rain gutters or downspouts get filled with leaves and debris, it’s hard for water to drain out of them effectively. Poor drainage, in turn, can lead to excess water buildup, which can result in pooling on your roof and leaks if you’re not careful.
Backed Up Sewer Systems
Sometimes, your home’s sewer system might not be able to handle a high volume of water from heavy storms. If this happens to you, you could end up with flooding and sewage backing up into your home through the toilet, sinks, or floor drains (yikes!).
