Best Ways to Prevent Indoor Flooding
No one expects to have a water damage in your home especially if you have never gone through it before. Trust us it is very common and could happen easily.
Here are some tips to help prevent indoor flooding.
Have your HVAC system checked regularly.
Your indoor unit should not be leaking water at any point, so having your system checked regularly can help prevent a water damage in your ceiling.
Have hoses to your appliances checked
One of the main causes of water damages in the home are supply lines to appliances, such as washers, water heater, refrigerator, and really popular here in Las Vegas are reverse osmosis machines.
Checking them every couple months or having a plumber come in to look at them is always recommended. Also, never operate a washing machine or dish washer when the home is unoccupied.
Monitor plumbing issues regularly
It is a lot harder to tell if you have a leak in the walls, than visually seeing water. It is important to notice any changes in water pressure, drywall staining, or musty smells.
