Certain accidents or disasters that result in water damages can be unpredictable, however there are some tips and tricks you can follow to help lessen the risk of flooding in your home or business.

 No matter what the appliance is, if it requires water it will typically have a supply line. One of the biggest ways we see here of homes with water damages comes from supply line leaks or breaks. These little hoses that are attached to your appliance can leak or break completely. When this occurs, water is displaced throughout the space uncontrollably.

Watching your appliances and checking their supply lines can potentially save you from water damage. If you regularly check your supply lines, there is the chance you will notice before things take a turn for the worst. A strange kink in the hose, or little crack can grow into a big break causing extensive water damage. To avoid this, check your hoses, look for potential problems, and get a replacement, before the damage is done.

  • Regular Bathroom Maintenance 

Similar to watching your appliances, conducting regular bathroom maintenance can potentially save you from a disaster. As you attending to your bathroom this may help you notice any pooling water under the sink, near the shower, or around the toilet.
