How To Prevent Water Damage

2/4/2022 (Permalink)

Sometimes the cause of water damage is beyond our control but sometimes we can take simple steps to prevent accidental water damage.

Promptly clean up any water spills or pooling of water on your floors. When you see any signs of moisture, grab a clean, dry cloth or mop immediately. Quick action will minimize or eliminate any impact on your floors.

Keep your floors in good repair. Floors that have lost their protective coating of polyurethane are susceptible to damage more readily than floors with a layer of polyurethane.

When cleaning your floors remember to never use excessive water or cleaning solution. A string mop is not recommended as this type of mop holds too much liquid. Take care when cleaning your wood floors because excessive amounts of water can be absorbed by the grain in the wood.

Check your plumbing and fixtures. Keep an eye on your plumbing and if in doubt call in an expert to be sure fittings and fixtures are in proper working order. Always have a professional install your appliances.
