When you think about all of the water that runs through pipes in your house, consider what would happen if they were not in tip-top shape. Just thinking about it is enough to scare any homeowner into taking care of their plumbing fixtures. There are three main variations of water damage that can do some serious damage to your home if you ignore it. Read on to learn how to easily prevent three main types of water damage in your home.
Water Damage through Washing Machine
If your washing machine decides to malfunction, you might be in trouble. Imagine you toss a load of laundry and leave to go run some errands. While you’re gone, one of the central machine hoses then explodes. Soap and water suds come streaming out, and before you realize it, you have a flood on your hands. Water damage at its worst, all because you aren’t there to shut the machine off. What should you do in this scenario? The fix is simple, just don’t overblow your machine. An over-worked washing machine, on a consistent basis, is a ticking time bomb. Try to follow your manufacturer’s advice and do not stuff it just to save time.
Do we have to say anymore? At one point or another, you’ll have water damage caused by a toilet that is overflowing. It is never a pretty sight, and it’s a mess to clean up. A toilet fail can not only cause you to stress, but it can cost you a lot of money, sometimes upwards of a few thousand dollars, to clean up the water damage. This is especially true if the toilet is on the upper level of your house and the water leaks through your ceiling. The fix? Consistent maintenance from professional plumbers can help ensure your flush valve, water supply, and your toilet handle are all working correctly.
