Preventing Water Damage

 

Water damage is the most common form of damage in a home.  Prevention of damage can be hard to find, but it does become easier if you are vigilant in looking for the signs.

One of the best practices you can have when owning a home is to understand what happens when something like a broken pipe occurs.  The common reason is simple wear on the pipes.  When coupled with high water pressures, these pipes will eventually fail.  The best practice here is to be proactive in the maintenance of the pipes in your home.  Have them checked regularly and replace as necessary.

When assessing the water damage from appliances, there are devices that are liquid leak detectors.  These devices find leaks and can help you find the areas that are causing the issues for repair.  These can be moderately expensive.  Some of the higher model sensors can actually turn off the water from the appliance minimizing the damage incurred, but these do require plumber and electrician assistance to install.  One of the best things to do with appliance is to schedule regular maintenance checks.  These checks do not take long, and they can save you thousands of dollars in repairs.

In order to protect your home, be proactive and observant.  Just because a room does not have a water source that it is free from water damage.  These room can be damaged from leaky roofs but also water sources above them, such as an upstairs bathroom.  Be sure to check the foundation of the home as well, especially in the Spring months when water tables rise and water can potentially flood your basement.

Finally, one of the best ways to see if a water leak is present is to turn the water off to the home.  Check the outside water meter.  If it continues to move, then water is moving in your house somewhere.  Also, be vigilant with your water bill.  If you notice higher than average water bills without an increased usage on your part, then you may have a leak somewhere on site.

Water damage is a serious issue that many people in the country deal with as it creates damage and thousands of dollars in repairs.  Through a little observance and being proactive, you can check the condition of your home to find problems while they are small.

Damage From Water

DSCN0458Water damage in your home or business can have an immediate impact on the possessions you own, and it can be a very daunting experience to work through.  In a matter of minutes, a lifetime’s worth of accumulated memories can be lost.

Whether it is from a burst pipe, leaking roof or other entry point, water can move very quickly through your home, and it can permanently damage the items it comes in contact with.  As water moves, it comes into contact with multiple areas which in turn can make insurance assessment and costs higher.  Water can also form what are known as transfer stains on wood and metal through the home, furniture can be damaged and wallpaper can begin to warp and split.  This can all happen in minutes after the water leak begins.

If the water leak is allowed to continue for hours, then your furniture will then begin to absorb water, warp and split.  Drywall and other finished building materials will begin to show the effects of water as it begins to become mushy as it absorbs the water.  Metal can begin to tarnish and show the early stages of rusting.  Odors in the home will become more acute and mold can begin to form.DSCN0466

If the water leak is allowed to proceed for days, this becomes the most drastic and costly stages of water damage.  As the water begins to have detritus float in it, it becomes known as grey water.  This term means that the water is slightly polluted, but not to the point of being black water which is infused with higher amounts of sewage.  Care still needs to be used when cleaning grey water as it can still pose health issues.  You will want to follow strict guidelines for disposing of items impacted with this kind of water damage for your safety.  Building materials will begin to crumble and waste away, and rust begins on uncoated materials.  Treated materials in the home will begin to warp and split.  Electric components will malfunction.  Finally, fungus will begin to appear around the home resulting in the need for mold remediation.

In the course of water damage in the home, it is always best to act immediately to find a solution to the cause and save any items potentially affected by the water.   The longer you wait, the higher your costs will be to repair your home.  If you act quickly through your own actions or by contacting a water removal specialist, then you can have your home back again.
