Understanding the factors that can cause water damage can be helpful in certain instances when dealing with the damage. Here are some causing factors:
1. Frozen Pipes
Temperatures are known to fall in Minnesota for a handful of months. Throughout this time, there are chances for frozen pipes. When the pipes freeze it causes the water inside to expand as it turns into ice, which can cause the pipe to burst.
2. Corroded Pipes
Most corroded pipes occur due to the high levels of oxygen that they are exposed to. This is a very common occurrence which is why it is known as the second largest leading cause of damaged pipes. These damaged pipes can then lead to water damage.
3. Sewage Back - Up
There are three common causes of sewage back - up that can occur in one’s commercial building. The three common causes are blockage, clogs, and broken lines. All of these can cause water coming up or being pushed into your building.
4. Leaking Roof
