Accidents happen, which is often what occurs when water damage is found in your home. However, there are a few different things you can do to minimize the chance that your Tallahassee home goes through this kind of damage. While a professional water damage worker can give you specific information about your home, we have a few tips for everyone.
Make sure you or someone you hire is cleaning out your gutters a couple of times each year. When the gutters get filled up with leaves and debris, it can cause serious issues. Water can leave the gutter and end up going through the roof, down into the basement, or even into your foundation.
Watching your water bill is another important tip that can help when considering Tallahassee water damage. If the bill seems to be much higher than it usually is, that can be a sign that you have a water leak you aren’t aware of. That also means that mold could be growing in your home without you even knowing about it.
When you plant trees and flowers, consider how invasive the roots are. You should avoid planting anything near your septic tank, sprinkler systems, and drainage pipes as it can damage the plumbing in your house, which can be expensive to rectify.
