How You Can Prevent Water Damage at Home
Did you know that water damage can weaken your homes' structure?
We all know that water damages are usually unexpected occurrences, but what if you knew what to look out for in order to prevent them?
The simplest and easiest place to start is to do routine checks of your home for water leaks and get them fixed before damages occur. What does this mean?
Examples of this include, but are not limited to:
-checking you the shingles on your roof and replace them if needed
-check all water sources (faucets, etc.) for dripping
-inspect walls or ceilings and look for dark spots or dampness or sagging
-check your wallpaper for blistering
-check your pipes for rusting
-check your floor to ensure there is no warping or soft spots
These can all be indications of water damage and if you make it a habit to look out for these signs, you are likely to catch an issue before it snowballs.
