5 Tips to Prevent Water Damage in your home
1. Check Hoses and Faucets
When the cold weather dips, always disconnect hoses from faucets, since the remaining water in a hose can freeze and burst or halt water flow. This also means hoses that lead to your refrigerator, washing machine and other appliances.
2. Clean Gutters and Downspouts
Regularly clean out gutters to prevent blockage. Clean your downspouts to allow water to move through. Eliminate any pooling water that can ruin roofs, gutters and foundations.
Trim trees, branches and bushes. Make sure trees are planted at least 20 feet away from pipes and drainage field as roots can wrap around pipes and cause damage.
4. Look for Leaks, Mold and Cracks
Plumbing leaks can lead to water damage in your home. Telltale signs of a leak include damp, dark spots on the floor, wall, ceiling and pipes. If you come across chipped paint or wallpaper or black specks or marks, that could signal a leak somewhere. Also look out for a moldy, musty smell or areas of discoloration or termite activity. Make sure to fix cracked caulk with newly applied caulking, especially around windows or doors.
5. Monitor Water Pressure
Using a water pressure gauge from a local hardware store can help you measure water pressure. You can attach the gauge to a faucet in your yard and then fully turn on the faucet to get a reading of your home’s water pressure.
When water pressure is set too high, the pressure may cause your pipes to fail. If the water pressure reading is more than 100 psi, you will need to use a pressure regulator, which is a valve that decreases water pressure from the main water line that enters into your house to a safe level.
