Water damage happens in vehicles too

Water damage is no fun no matter where or what from. 

Broken or burst pipes can happen on any level in a home. Even dishwashers and washing machines can malfunction causing water to spill everywhere. One environment you may not consider water damage to happen in, can and will.

Leaving a glass water bottle in a cold vehicle during the winter is another way water damage can happen. You’d think common sense would play a fair role in this photo, but reality and a tired body or mind can lead to small mistakes that can turn into big ones. 


Anything can freeze in a vehicle overnight in the winter season, but did you know, this glass bottle, as we are told, was only in a vehicle for the duration of four hours in Minnesota's harsh and cold winters?

As you can see, the water in this glass bottle froze allowing for the glass to crack under pressure. What’s next you ask? 

Well, if you’re not able to safely remove the glass water bottle while still frozen, the end result would be having to wait for the ice to defrost resulting in, you guessed it, water damage.
