Taking Care of Your Home Can Prevent a Water Damage Incident
Will and his water damage Frenchtown crew are experts when it comes to solving the challenges of a water damage incident when it has already occurred, but they are also highly capable of helping people to prevent such events from ever taking place too.
“We take calls every day when the weather picks up from people who are trying to learn the best ways to protect their home or business,” Will says. “This is why we have created a long list of all the things that people can do from a simple maintenance perspective that will keep their home high and dry from water damage no matter what the weather brings in.”
- Make sure to take a moment now and again to trim off any dead branches that threaten to fall on your home in heavy rain or snow. These can severely damage your roof and cause water to pour in when there is a rain or snowstorm.
- Never let the temperature in your home drop below freezing, especially when you aren’t home, as this will allow ice to form in your pipes which can then cause a pipe burst to occur when you can’t be there to rectify it.
- Check the hoses, fittings, connectors, and all other elements that connect your water-based appliances to the main line. These can experience wear and tear over the years, and eventually they will fail when under pressure. Replace them if you see any small nicks or abrasions that may expand and cause you water damage.
- Let a plumbing expert or restoration professional take a look at your entire system with a snake scope to ensure that there are no small obstructions that might turn into a larger problem down the road if left to linger.
“This list is comprised of some of the top examples of water damage sources and their maintenance solutions,” Will says. “But it is not complete, and if anyone has questions about items that aren’t listed here, they should give us a call to find out more.”
If your home is in jeopardy of experiencing water damage loss from an ice dam, pipe burst, water heater malfunction or any other means, then don’t hesitate to contact Will and the water damage Frenchtown team with 911 Restoration Missoula today!
Long Shower Causes Water Damaged Kitchen
Will and his water damage Frenchtown crew have seen and solved all variety of different restoration projects in their time and this is how they knew what the most likely source of the problem was when called out to a recent job.
“When we talked with the homeowner on the phone she said that while taking a shower, her husband noticed that the can lights in the kitchen were dripping,” Will says. “By the time the husband got upstairs and told her to turn off the shower, there was an accumulated two inches of standing water in the ceiling of the kitchen.”
When Will and his team got to work they eliminated the water from the kitchen, and then found the source of the trouble in the bathroom shower.
“Shower leaks are almost always caused by a problem with the fittings of the showerhead or faucet, and lastly with the grout in the tiles that line floor and the doors,” Will says. “We realized immediately that the cause in this situation was the grout in the tiles. It had flaked, chipped, and broken away to the point at which there was no watertight barrier between the shower and the floor anymore.”
Will and the water damage Frenchtown team fixed the grout situation in the shower and sealed it up completely so that there wouldn’t be any opportunity for leaks in the future.
Don’t let a long shower, pipe burst, ice dam or any other form of water damage ruin your lovely home. Contact Will and the water damage Frenchtown team with 911 Restoration Missoula and get all of your home’s needs addressed today!
