Sprinklers Can Cause Water Damage Inside Your Home

8/19/2019 (Permalink)

When looking for the source of water damage or mold inside your house, sometimes you need to look outside your home for the cause of the water damage.  One area that may get overlooked is your sprinkler system.

If there is a stained arch on the side of the house or the wall is wet and there are sprinklers nearby, then most likely the sprinklers are spraying the side of the house.  Sprinkler heads should be checked to see if they are pointed the wrong direction or if they are broken.  When adjusting the sprinkler heads, a check of the wall's condition should also be done.  Any damaged wall areas should be repaired, which will help prevent future water intrusion. 

Occasionally if the sprinklers have gotten the wall area wet over a long period of time and the moisture has penetrated the wall, then mold or mildew may have developed.  If this is the case, call the professionals at SERVPRO of Vacaville.  They can respond immediately to any signs of mold or mildew and help with mold and mildew remediation.  Call us today at 707-724-8977.
