Prevent Water Damage Issues In Your Canton Area Home
SERVPRO Tip: Proactive Inspections Can Reduce Chances of Water Damage
Many homeowners think of hurricanes, flooding, or torrential rains when you mention water damage becoming a problem in their homes. However, everyday household appliances, plumbing, and roof repairs cause far more harm, more often, than any natural disaster.
You can avoid becoming a statistic by taking a few measures to protect your Canton home from water damage incidents that normally occur in your area. Everything from failed water heaters, broken feed lines on your refrigerator or washing machine, to leaky pipes or plumbing fixtures can lead to problems you simply are not ready to handle.
While we want to avoid causing a panic, we would like to stress the importance of watching your water usage and performing regular maintenance on the appliances and fixtures found in your home. Doing so can easily help prevent problems that arise that cause these types of issues in your home.
SERVPRO technicians respond to hundreds, if not thousands, of calls every year where the homeowner could have avoided problems altogether, had they performed regular checks or had a preparedness inspection carried out on their property. A little knowledge goes a long way towards helping prevent hazards from existing in your home.
SERVPRO can help you learn the location of and how to operate the main water supply valve on your property. If you plan on going away for a while, shut off your water supply and drain the system beforehand. It is little tricks like this that can help limit damages you experience during an event and prevent extensive damage to your home.
Get your heating and air conditioning systems serviced before using them again between seasons to help prevent problems with runoff or leakage that often leads to mold issues. The ventilation system you use every day has a huge impact on your indoor air quality and the health and safety of your family. Take care of it to take care of yourselves.
Have SERVPRO technicians check your yard for grading, drainage issues, foundation cracks, roof leaks, and other problems that develop over time. Paying a small fee to find out that you have nothing to worry about makes it easier to prevent massive damages when things do get out of hand.
