Ways You Can Safeguard Your Home Against Water Damage
Water damage is a common issue for homeowners to deal with, but there are ways you can safeguard your home.
Make it a point to regularly:
- Inspect all appliances for issues with hoses and faucets
- Check the seals and caulking around your showers and tubs to make sure there is no leakage
- Know where the main water shut-off valve is in your home
- Don’t leave your washing machine or dishwasher running when you are not home
There are also things you can do to protect the possessions in your home from water damage. Use waterproof bins to store items and keep items stored on shelves off of the floor—which is especially recommended when using your basement for storage.
Anything from a burst pipe to a malfunctioning dishwasher or storm damage are just some of the ways water damage could affect your home. Should you experience a water damage, SERVPRO of North Huntington is always here to help and are only a phone call away!
