It’s hard to deny: Wisconsin is a wet place. Springtime brings in heavy showers and summer is usually hot and sticky. Winter is even wetter with hail, freezing rain, and snow. In Southeastern Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Racine, and Kenosha counties receive the most precipitation annually, with an average of around 120 days of rain and snow. Due to the amount of ambient water in the air and on the ground, residential and commercial properties are at-risk for water damage year-round. If left untreated and unattended, seemingly benign water can lead to costly damage. Luckily, Kelmann provides best in class water damage restoration services to Milwaukee and Southeastern Wisconsin.

Water damage can come in a variety of forms that you may not expect. If you live in Milwaukee or the surrounding cities, you should be aware of the following potential water damage risks:
Many of these sources of water damage are ambient; however, many are the result of faulty pipes or drains. When pipes leak behind drywall, the water follows the path of least resistance. This usually means that water begins to pool and absorb into your home’s foundation or wall studs. Alternatively, water can pool between your roof and ceiling—this, ultimately, leads to mold spores and drywall damage. Regardless of the source of the damage, unchecked water damage can lead to the destruction of your home’s foundation. Given enough time, water damage can lead to expensive repairs. For this reason alone, being mindful of water leaks is incredibly important.
Most causes of water damage are preventable. That said, water damage prevention starts with knowing what to expect and knowing where to look. There are several actions you can take to prevent water damage in your home or commercial property. For instance, activities such as monitoring humidity levels, looking for leaks, roof and gutter maintenance, and maintaining proper ventilation decreases the likelihood of your home sustaining water damage over time. Unfortunately, these processes can be difficult and time-consuming. When in doubt, it’s always a good idea to involve an expert. If you suspect that you’re overdue for an inspection, you can always reach out to our friendly staff. Our teams from our New Berlin and Wauwatosa locations are always at the ready. When called, they will assess your home for water damage and provide you with the necessary steps moving forward.
