Sources of Water Damage
Water may enter a building by a number of routes. Water may come from external of internal sources. The water may be relatively clean or contain some degree of contamination.
 
Damage from wind storms or other cause may allow rain water to enter through the roofIce dams on sloped roofs can force water to travel under roofing material and into the building. 
 
Poor construction methods, faulty plumbing or water pipes that freeze and burst can result in water where it was never intended to be. The water may come from lines carrying potable (safe for drinking) water or the source could be a backed-up sewer lineFaulty appliances or damaged water beds may also be the cause of water damage. Flooding due to rising rivers or storm surge is another source.
 
The cause may due to accident, negligence or even intentional vandalism. A water loss is often associated with a fire loss due to the water used to control the fire.
 
High water table and capillary action may result in ground water rising into a building through the foundation. Hydrostatic pressure (the force of water in the ground outside a building) can push the water into a concrete foundation. From there water can find its way to other parts of the structure. 
 

Water damage may occur even without coming in contact with liquid water Hygroscopic (moisture absorbing) material will attract moisture from the air during prolonged periods of high humidity

Please do not hesitate to call us if you have any questions.

The earliest people in Tukwila were the Duwamish who made their homes along the Black and Duwamish Rivers. The name "Tukwila" comes from the Chinook Jargon word for "nut" or "hazelnut", [4] referring to the lush forests of hazelnut trees which grew in the area. Although some say it was named after the Indian word T’awedIc, for River duck. The Duwamish lived in cedar longhouses, hunted and fished, picked wild berries and used the river for trade with neighboring peoples.

In 1853, the area was settled by Joseph Foster, a Canadian pioneer who had traveled to the northwest from Wisconsin. Foster would become known as the "Father of Tukwila" and serve King County, Washington Territory in the legislature for 22 years. Today, Foster's legendary home on the banks of the Duwamish River is preserved as Fort Dent Park, as it also served as a military base during 1850s Indian Wars. Foster's name is also memorialized in the Foster neighborhood of Tukwila where Foster High School is located.

In the early years of Foster, Washington, the small village would grow into an agricultural center and a vital trading point in the upper-Duwamish River Valley. Population began to grow as well, and expanded industry would soon follow. Although with the largely farm-oriented commerce in Tukwila, other businesses found fertile land in which to grow from.

Early electric rail trains traveled along Interurban Avenue in Tukwila, connecting to Renton and a line to Tacoma. The Interurban Railroad operated a commuter line from 1902 to 1928, making it possible to travel from Seattle to Tacoma in less than an hour. The first macadam paved road in Washington State was in Tukwila and bears the name of this new method of street paving. One of the earliest paved military roads is located in the city.

Tukwila was incorporated as a city in 1908.
