Water is constantly flowing through the pipes of our homes and out of our appliances and fixtures. We rely on water for so many household uses that it is no surprise that the threat of water damage is so abundant in our lives.

Spotting a water leak before it gets out of control can help prevent a costly and extensive repair process. Check out our tips for preventing a water issue in your home below!

Bathrooms and Water Damage

Our bathrooms are perhaps the most used rooms in our homes. The sinks, bathtubs, toilets and showers are necessary fixtures in our daily lives. Each one has a water supply line that needs to be checked on occasion for wear and tear.

Each of these fixtures also has a watertight seal that could deteriorate over time, leaving you vulnerable to a big water problem at any point! Check these areas each time you clean your bathroom and address any small drips or leaks immediately.

Avoid Faulty Appliances

If you are a homeowner, you know how costly and extensive a full appliance failure can be. Water damage from appliances like dishwashers or washing machines can warp or ruin floors, soak through walls, and cause mold growth.

Catching any small leaks early can prevent all of these issues. Routine inspection, along with routine cleaning, can alert you to a developing problem early. If you discover mold or water spots behind or underneath these appliances, call us immediately!

The Threat of Winter Weather

We are lucky enough to see it all in the Shelby area! We are vulnerable to rain, snow, sleet and ice all season long. Sometimes, it can all happen in a single storm event.

Because we can experience many different kinds of winter weather, it is crucial to prepare your home for what is to come this winter season.

Clean off your roof and clear your gutters so that any rain or sleet we get can run down and flow away from your homes. It is also important to make sure your windows and doors are moisture proof. Drafty areas can let in the cold temperatures or unwanted moisture. Any lingering moisture can be the start of a mold infestation!

If you experience water damage inside your home or business, call us 247. We have the experience and equipment to get your property back in working order fast.
