How To Prevent Water Damage This Winter

Snowflakes in winter Whether it’s a leaky pipe, devastating storm, or malfunctioning appliances—water damage is a homeowner’s worst nightmare.

Whether it’s a leaky pipe, devastating storm, or malfunctioning appliances—water damage is a homeowner’s worst nightmare. Just the idea of water damage to your home is enough to make a homeowner shiver. Thankfully, many sources of water damage can be prevented.

SERVPRO of Henry and Randolph Counties has a few tips to help you avoid water damage to your home this winter. By following these tips, your home will be at a lesser risk of a water damage disaster.

  • Check your water heater. Water heaters normally last about 8-12 years. However, if it is not properly cared for, it can corrode and cause leaks or overflow. To ensure your water heater is up to par, check it periodically for moisture or water surrounding the stand it rests on.

  • Clean your gutters. If there is a buildup of debris in your gutters it will stop them from doing their job properly. As a result, water can spill over through the roof, into the foundation, and down to your basement or crawl space.

  • Prevent frozen pipes. Frozen pipes can cost thousands of dollars in damage and put your home at risk of mold and microbial growth. Pipes located in the outside walls, crawl spaces, and attics are the most vulnerable to freezing. Insulate the pipes that are exposed to cold air and keep the faucet dripping during extremely cold weather.

By implementing these tips, you are less likely to experience water damage this winter. However, should you find your home with water damage, give SERVPRO of Henry and Randolph Counties a call! The SERVPRO team is faster to any disaster and will make it, “Like it never even happened.”

Fall Storms

Beautiful fall image of a storm on the horizon. During the Fall Season, it is not uncommon for powerful storms to move through our area.

During the Fall Season, it is not uncommon for powerful storms to move through our area. Whether it be strong winds, heavy rainfall that can lead to flooding, or solid precipitation such as hail, these weather acts have the potential to wreak havoc on residences and personal property. 

Fortunately, SERVPRO of Henry and Randolph Counties has important tips for how to protect the homes we cherish so much, and what to do in the event that damage does occur. 

You should always check to make sure your current roof is in good condition. Loose shingles, or issues with gutters, drains, or downspouts can exacerbate any problem with a storm quickly. Also, make sure that any low-hanging tree limbs have been trimmed and are not at risk of falling easily. 

If you have a sump pump in your basement or crawl space, checking to make sure it is working properly can be crucial in avoiding any type of flooding when heavy rainfall occurs. If flooding does take place, make sure to check all areas of your home for places where water may be accumulating or not draining. Standing water can lead to mold very quickly, and is best to be avoided if at all possible. 

As much as we would like to prevent storm damage from occurring, sometimes it is simply out of our control. When this happens it is important to reach out to the professionals immediately. The team at SERVPRO of Henry and Randolph Counties has the expertise needed to handle any or all storm-related problems. With SERVPRO's 24/7 service, the team will arrive faster to any disaster. 

Should you have any questions about storm damage or feel you might have damage, give us a call at (765) 575-8654. We can make the damage “Like it never even happened.”

Signs of Water Damage in Your Bathroom

Water overflowing in tub Don’t fall victim to water damage in the bathroom.

Your bathroom sees the highest water usage in your home, so it’s an area where water damage can easily occur. The damage can often be found behind the walls or under the floor.  You might think soaking the water up with a towel will suffice, but more than likely the water has already begun wreaking havoc.

When water pools under the bathtub or shower it can cause mold or mildew to form which leads to wood rot. This damage can be so severe that it is possible for your bathroom appliances to fall through the floor if not remedied. Don’t fall victim to water damage in the bathroom- check for these three signs you may have bathroom water damage:

Spongy or soft floor- If your bathroom has a wooden floor, the sub floor is likely made of plywood. If plywood is subject to water, it will begin to rot, and your floors will feel spongy or soft in places.

Musty smell- If your bathroom continues to smell musty or damp, even after you clean it, you might have mold and mildew in the walls and subfloor.

Gaps between caulk, tub, and tile- If you have visible gaps in the grout or caulk of your shower or bathtub, water might be seeping into the walls and subfloor. This water leak could lead to mold, mildew, and wood rot.

If you notice any of these signs in your bathroom, don’t wait to call for help. SERVPRO of Henry and Randolph Counties offers 24/7 emergency services and are faster to any disaster. Give us a call if you suspect water damage and the team will make it, “Like it never even happened.”
