Many household appliances are prone to creating water damage and may require water restoration services and clean-up. As a homeowner, it is best to check appliances regularly, including dishwashers, refrigerators, washing machines, ice makers, etc. A small leak can cause tremendous water damage. Check aging hoses, connectors, and evidence of water leaking. CBC Cleaning and Restoration, and our 24 Hour Emergency service can help repair your home when your appliances fail and cause water damage.
To help avoid the need for restoration services, there are many things a homeowner can do to prevent water damage. Homeowners should maintain their exterior gutters and downspouts, cleaning out the leaves and debris that might build up over time. Also, extend your downspouts out from the house around 10 feet, so groundwater can’t settle back into your home, causing water damage. Lastly, the angle of your yard is very important and should direct excess water away from your home’s foundation. This keeps water damage from seeping inside.
Roof leaks are one of the most frequent sources of home water damage and cause for cleanup service. The safest way to detect a rook leak before it strikes is to get a detailed professional inspection to identify areas of weakness in your roofs façade, and then make repairs as needed.
