Where to Watch Out for Water Damage in Your Home
- Bathrooms: Your bathroom is probably the place where you interact with water most frequently in your house, and therefore it is also the place where water damage is most likely to occur. Ask any plumber, and they’ll happily tell you horror stories about damage resulting from overflowing toilets, broken showers, and leaky sinks. It’s also extremely common for mold growth to occur in your bathroom, so make sure to watch out these issues, and call a professional right away if a problem does occur.
- Kitchens: The kitchen is the second most common place in your home where water is used, and therefore the second most common place for water damage to occur. Your sink, dishwasher, and fridge are all major culprits when it comes to leaks, and of course there are pipes you don’t see every day in your kitchen that can burst and cause a huge mess. This is why it’s a good idea to call for regular plumbing maintenance, and replace worn out appliances rather than using them till they cause a problem.
- Basements: Basements are not common everywhere in America, but where they are, flooding also tends to be a major concern. A working sump pump can help protect you from flooding, but problems with your water heater or extreme rain can still result in extensive water damage. Make sure you have the necessary insurance to help cover this, and make sure the water-related appliances are well-maintained.
- Roofing: No matter where you live in the United States, it’s essential to have a solid roof to protect your home from rain and snow-related damage. This is even more true in places like our state of Florida, where extreme weather events are fairly common. Call a roofer if you notice your roof is starting to become dry and cracked, or you see a leak. Trust us, the last thing you want is to have to deal with a collapsed roof on top of water damage.
