Causes of Water Damage

Water Leak from the Ceiling

If you encounter water damage, it’s crucial to address it promptly to prevent further damage and potential mold growth.

6 Ways to Avoid Costly Repairs

1. Locate your main water supply.

It is essential to know where your main water supply is so that when there is a pipe leak or a washing machine overflow, you can immediately cut off the water source to avoid further water spillage. Then, call ServiceMaster Remediation Services for repairs.

2. Regularly check your water meter.

If you find water leaks earlier, you can save money on water consumption. Keep a close watch on your water meter. A sudden rise in your water bill could mean a pipe leak somewhere, behind walls or underneath your floorboards.

3. Clean gutters often.

Gutters are installed in each home to redirect water away from your foundation. Debris and too much dirt can cause gutters to be clogged and not function well. Since it is not properly draining away rainwater, water can get into your home’s foundation or leak through the roof.

4. Remove water immediately.

It’s essential to act fast when repairing home water damage. If water is left standing, mold and mildew can grow in at least 24 hours. Remove as much from the space as possible, including furniture, to effectively dry out the affected area, and place fans on the wet flooring and walls. If the water damage is extensive, you may need to rent a few industrial-strength fans to ensure the area dries completely.

5. Seal and caulk.

To eliminate future repair projects caused by moderate to severe water damage, we recommend sealing and caulking new windows, plumbing fixtures, flooring, and doorways.

6. Contact a water remediation company immediately.

Have experts assess your home or business.
