Tips and Tricks for water damage.
Fix leaky faucets: This might not seem like a big deal, beyond a slightly higher water bill, but a leaky faucet has the potential to cause big damage, especially if that drain becomes clogged. For instance, dripping water can build up in the drain, forcing water to back up in the drain, which could ultimately become a big mess if not recognized and properly cared for. The same can be said with dripping toilets.
Check your pipes: Leaky pipes are more common in galvanized plumbing, and not so much in the newer, more efficient copper piping, but all pipes aren’t immune to leaking. What’s more is that your pipes run through your basement ceiling (if you’re one of the minority homeowners in South Florida with a basement) or underneath sinks and through foundations – places where you’re not likely to check very often. Look for signs of dripping on occasion or signs of water damage and make the necessary repairs as you see fit. A dripping pipe is only likely to get worse over time. And ignoring it could not only cause water build up in your home, but lead to mold growth as well.
Keep pipes clear: In more tropical climates, plants and roots are likely to grow faster and this can become a big problem if they grow through the pipes that are leading to and from your home. Not only could this cause leaks, but it could cause pipes to back up, which could turn your home into a flooded mess.
