Tips on Avoiding Water Damage

As a homeowner, you are always looking for ways to protect and maintain your investment. Here are some tips to avoid a disaster:

APPLIANCES: Most household appliances are prone to creating water damage and may require water restoration services and clean-up. As a homeowner, it is best to check appliances regularly, including dishwashers, refrigerators, washing machines, etc. A small leak can cause tremendous water flood damage. CBC Cleaning and Restoration, and our 24 Hour Emergency service can help repair your home when your appliances fail, and cause water damage.

EXTERIOR MAINTENANCE: To help avoid the need for restoration services, there are many things a homeowner can do to prevent water damage. Homeowners should maintain their exterior gutters and downspouts, checking for leaves and debris that might build up over time. Also, extend your downspouts 10 feet from the house so groundwater can’t settle back into your home, causing flood damage. Lastly, the angle of your yard should direct excess water away from your home’s foundation, keeping water damage from seeping inside. ROOF LEAKS: Roof leaks are one of the most frequent sources of home water damage and cause for cleanup service. The safest way to detect a rook leak before it strikes is to get a detailed professional inspection to identify areas of weakness in your roofs façade, and then make repairs as needed.

WINDOWS AND DOORS: A common area for water damage to your home is around windows and doors. Builders commonly use sealants in window and door frames to protect against water damage. But those seals only last several years and need to be replaced. Checking water damage problem areas is the best way to prevent excess water from seeping in.
