Pipe Burst and Water Damage Avoidance Measures
When it comes to quality work and services to eliminate the effects of a water damage event, there is no one more adept for the task than Mike or his water damage Kawartha Lakes crew, but they are also highly prized for their ability to help people avoid such situations too.
“Daily, my staff and I will field calls from worried property owners simply trying to find the best way to protect their home or business from the elements,” Mike says. “And that is the major reason why we decided to create a list of all the tasks that people can do on their own to keep their structure safe and sound.”
- Make sure to never let the temperature in your home dip too low. If the ambient air drops into the freezing digits, then you run the risk of having a pipe burst situation occur. Avoiding this simply means keeping the heat up in the home, or insulating some pipes.
- Check the trees around your property to determine if there are any dead branches or limbs that might come down and hit your home when under the pressure of high winds or snowfall. These can impale a roof and create massive amounts of water damage in the process.
- Take a moment now and again to determine the viability of the hoses and fittings on your appliances that are connected to the water line. These can deteriorate over time and rupture when you least expect it. These are easy and cheap to replace and doing so can save you from mass water damage situations.
- Direct the discharge from your downspouts away from your home or business so that the foundation doesn’t get flooded in heavy rain. This can be a huge source of water damage, and redirecting the outflow is easy and cheap to take on alone.
“This list is just a collection of the top sources of water damage, and what people can do about them on their own, but it isn’t everything,” Mike says. “So if people have questions about items that aren’t mentioned here, they should absolutely give us a call to find out about their specific query.”
