Home Maintenance Tips: Assessing and Addressing Water Damage
With the heavy rainfall we've had this summer, you may have noticed water in places it shouldn't be in your home. Basement cracks, damaged shingles, even improperly sealed vents can provide an entry point for water, causing small spots, stains, or (at the very worst) rot, mold, and possible structural damage to your home.
There are other ways water can wreak havoc in the house, though, that have nothing to do with mother nature. Think about all of the appliances you have in your home that use water- the dishwasher, the refrigerator, the washing machine, the hot water heater- and all of the pipes and fixtures that control the flow of water in your home, like your sinks, showers/baths, exterior faucets, and more!
To make sure you're protecting your biggest asset, we thought we would share some great tips from Ryan Waite of Neckerman Insurance, on checking your home for leaks and drips that happen without the help of mother nature.
