Water Damage

A minor leak can quickly turn into a disaster flood in your home. Prevent water leaks and damage by taking various preventative measures. Here are a few to think about:

  1.  Avoid planting near pipes, sprinkler lines, or septic tanks, as roots can become invasive and problematic.
  2.  Make it a habit to clean your gutters at least twice a year to be sure that water continues to flow away from your roof.
  3. Regularly check your hose for kinks, cracks, and bulges or consider upgrading to a reinforced hose.

There are usually multiple shut-off valves in a house – one for each of your appliances that uses water and a main shut-off valve for the entire house. You can usually find shut-off knobs for your toilet, sink or washing machine behind the units or under the sink. If your toilet is about to overflow, don’t waste time by running around looking for the main water shut-off valve – simply turn the water shut-off knob behind the toilet. (Turn it to the right!)
