3 Ways to Avoid Water in Your Home

7/29/2019 (Permalink)

While most disasters deem unpredictable and wild, when it comes to water damages there are a few tips you can follow to help lessen the possibility of damages to your home. Listed below are 3 tips you can implicate in your life to help lessen the risk of water damages:

  • Observing Your Appliances

 In every home that has appliances that use water, often times there is a small hose like object called a supply line attached to the back. This hose is one of the main sources of water damages we see here at SERVPRO. Simply watching and checking in on your supply lines can help you drastically when attempting to prevent water damages.

Supply line leaks occur when there is a crack that develops in the hose or the hose breaks all together, then displacing water all around into the area. To avoid this, regularly inspect your supply lines, looking for little kinks or potential cracks developing in your hose. If found, replace the hose immediately or call a provider to come inspect your appliance for further damages.

  • Regular Bathroom Maintenance

 Just like watching your appliances, checking around your bathroom and doing regular maintenance can help you avoid possible water damages greatly. When conducting maintenance, check for a potential pipe burst or pools of water near you tub, around your toilet or under your sink. If found, it is best to remove water quickly in order to lessen further damages. Sitting water allows for materials to absorbs moisture and then possibly grow mold. Doing regular maintenance allows you to potentially see an issue in action and stop it, getting the help you might need, before it gets worse.

  • Checking your HVAC Unit System

Commonly HVACV Units have the potential to develop moisture problems within your home. To avoid damages from HVAC systems, have a provider do regular maintenance on your system. Having a professional set of eyes on your unit can help eliminate problems before they grow into damages that can affect your home.

When the unexpected disasters hit, give SERVPRO of Hernando County the call to make your damages “Like it never even happened.”
