Essential Practices of Home Water Damage Prevention

Water can flow, water can crash, and water can tear apart your property one drip at a time. It goes without saying that water can be as destructive as it is resourceful, and property owners know this very well. If your property has experienced water damage, then you are probably wondering how to minimize damage. Proactive homeowners will go further. They will want to know how to prevent water damage. This article brought to you by Tidal Wave Response will go over some essential practices of home water damage prevention. If you prefer the experience of a water damage technician, then call Tidal Wave Response to get in touch with a friendly representative.

Lay A Solid Foundation

Your home rests on a foundation that is usually the concrete slab. That is not the foundation we are going to go into, but the concrete slab does rely on it. If you want to prevent water damage, then make sure your plumbing system is well maintained and repaired on time. Begin with annual inspections. Your plumber will let you know of serious problems that pose risks of water damage. You can also walk through the house to inspect for signs of water damage. Do this once every couple of months.

Next, there’s maintenance. There is a lot of maintenance that you can take care of on your own. For instance, inspect hoses that lead to and from appliances such as your dishwasher, refrigerator, and washing machine. Replace these hoses once every five years, but replace them as soon as possible if you notice cracks and leaks.

Prevent Seepage

You want rainwater, floodwater, and melting snow to stay out of your living space. Resealing certain areas of your home can prevent water seepage. Head to your basement and check for cracks in your building’s foundation or floor slabs. Doing this after a rain can make it easier as the leaks will be easier to spot. You can apply water sealant on cracks. You can also caulk around tubs, showers, sinks, faucets, and showerheads to keep the areas watertight.

These are temporary solutions but remember to speak with a reliable plumber to make sure the plumbing system is not causing the seepage.

Prevent Mold and Mildew

Water can cause damage even in its gaseous state. High levels of humidity help to create the ideal environment for mold and mildew. As you know, mold and mildew smell terrible, look awful, and can damage your building’s structural integrity.

To prevent mold and mildew,

  • Keep humidity levels between 30-60%
  • Use air conditioners, exhaust fans, and dehumidifiers
  • Prevent water seepage 
  • Remove standing water as soon as possible

Remove mold growth by cleaning the area with bleach. Remember, damp rags and towels are breeding grounds for mold and fungi.
