Common sources of flood damage

While storms do their part in leaving your home waterlogged, they aren’t the only way water damage can make its way into your home. Water damage can also come by way of burst pipes, clogged gutters, disconnected hoses and leaky roofs. There are many more ways water can be a thorn in your side. Whatever the case may be, your home is now in need of help. While natural disasters cannot be helped, there are some ways to control and prevent water damage. The more proactive you are to prevent water damage, the less likely you end up needing emergency water damage mitigation services.

Ways to help prevent water damage to your property

Strange word –mitigation. It’s not very commonly used. The dictionary defines mitigation as the action of reducing the severity seriousness, or painfulness of something. It’s to alleviate or prevent an occurrence. In this case it would be of flooding or water damage. Here are a few preventive methods:

  • Clean gutters and downspouts at least twice a year. If left unattended, backed up water could overflow and damage the foundation of your home.
  • Maintain your appliances. Check for leaks and detachments in your refrigerator, washing machine, and dishwasher.
  • Old or leaky washing machine hoses are one of the most frequent causes of water loss. Replace them regularly
  • Install water detectors. These devices alert you to leaks, detecting slow leaks that are normally overlooked.
  • Use rain barrels to collect rain water that could pool around your foundation and seep into your basement
  • Know where the main water valve is and be sure to turn it off before leaving for an extended period of time (Unless your home is heated by water/baseboard heaters, you don’t want the pipes to freeze).

Following these tips can be very helpful in preventing water damage to your home. Keeping up the maintenance of your appliances is crucial. Homeowner’s insurance does not typically cover damage that results from lack of maintenance.
