Four Significant Ways to Prevent Water Damage
The Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety reminds us that those annoying leaky faucets if left unchecked and unfixed, could cost thousands of dollars in damage. USAA suggests (4) significant ways to prevent water damage.
- Inspect Your Attic Leaky Roofs are the #1 leading cause of water damage. Musty smells, water stains on the ceiling or floor, missing shingles or damp insulation.
- Check Your Bathroom from cracked or missing caulk around tub, sinks, and toilets. Water damage from one toilet can cost $2,000-10,000.
- Keep Your Kitchen Dry by checking your refrigerator ice maker & dishwasher supply lines for kinks or cracks. Check under the dishwasher for water. Vacuum the coils on your frig every 6 months. Proper maintenance can help your fridge to last 13 years.
- Watch Over Your Utility Room as 75% of water heaters fail before they're 12 years old and check your washer for leaks, cracks & bulges. Replace supply lines every 5 years with steel braided hose.
Every water damage situation is different and requires a unique solution, but the Water Damage Restoration Process stays the same.
