Water Damage-Common Inside Sources

4/10/2017 (Permalink)

There are many areas inside and outside your home that can cause water damage.  According to State Farm Insurance, here are a few inside sources:

•Look for signs of existing leaks on ceilings, walls, floors and near appliances that use water. •Methods to avoid damage due to freezing include insulating exposed pipes, utilizing heat tape in areas which can’t be insulated, and running a trickle of water out of faucets when the business is closed and the water is not being used during periods of freezing or below freezing temperatures. •Avoid putting any solids or grease down your drains, and use screens on your drains to catch solids before they enter the plumbing system. •Ensure hose connections are secure and water supply lines are not brittle or worn for appliances such as washing machines and icemakers. •Apply fresh caulk around all fixtures and exterior openings such as doors, windows and fixtures. •It is recommended that all appliances and mechanicals be regularly serviced by licensed contractors to ensure there are no leaks, wear and tear or blockages which may cause water damage”
