Water can cause a significant amount of damage in a short period of time, so make sure you take preventative measures to avoid water damage both inside and outside. When you’re faced with a flood or a leaky roof, you have to react fast to prevent further loss and high repair costs.
Within minutes, water contamination will spread to other areas of your home or office and moisture sensitive surfaces can swell and disfigure. Furniture stains will appear on carpeting and are usually permanent. Paper goods and records will be ruined and drapery fabrics that come into contact with water may develop permanent watermarks.
How to Avoid Water Damage Both Inside and Outside your home:
- Ensure your roof is in good condition and replace any missing, curling or cracked shingles.
- Inspect all sink supply lines, showers and bathtubs and correct any leaking drain pipes.
- Examine all eaves troughs to make sure they are clear of any leaves and debris for proper outdoor drainage.
