Maintenance and Inspection Tips for Preventing Water Damage
At SERVPRO® of Spring Valley/Jamul, we know that many water damage emergencies can be avoided by routine maintenance and inspection of your home’s indoor plumbing systems. Here are some tips for preventing water damage from the Insurance Information Institute:
- Inspect appliance hoses and faucets. Make it a practice every year to check hoses leading to water heaters, dishwashers, washing machines and refrigerator ice makers. You may also want to invest in a water leak monitoring and shut-off system that can alert you to any leakage issues. Immediately replace any hoses that have cracks or leaks and replace them all every five to seven years.
- Inspect showers and tubs. Check the seal and caulking around showers and tubs to make sure they are watertight and reseal if necessary.
- Check plumbing and heating pipes. Look closely for cracks and leaks and have any necessary repairs made immediately.
It’s also a good idea to understand what is covered in your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policy. For instance, some policies will cover sewer and drain backups, and some do not, and you may have to purchase a sewer backup rider to add to your existing coverage.
