Keeping Your Brunswick Home in Great Condition
Water Damage in Your Brunswick Home
Whether it comes from a storm or an old water heater, water damage can cause a lot of problems in your home. From ruining your furniture and structures to creating a perfect spot for mold to grow, water damage is something you want to handle right away.
You can follow these tips to help you keep on top of any damage to your home from excess moisture and smaller water issues:
Check appliances, hoses, and piping for damage regularly.
If you smell the musty odor that is a telltale sign of mold beginning to grow, find the source right away and get the colony cleaned up.
Clean up all spills as soon as they occur.
If a leak is found, no matter how small, make sure the necessary repairs are done as soon as possible and dry the affected area completed.
If you live in an area with high humidity, using a dehumidifier can greatly reduce damage from excess moisture in the air.
Wipe down and dry the walls in your kitchen regularly to avoid a mold colony establishing itself.
Scrub and dry your sink thoroughly, especially around the faucet and knobs; corrosion can make it necessary to replace these items much sooner than you planned if they are not kept clean.
In the event that you do have larger-scale water damage in your home or business:
Remove all furniture and machinery from the area.
You may need to move large appliances away from the walls to remove moisture or standing water.
Soak up all excess water completely, and immediately. Standing water attracts pests such as mosquitoes; mold isn’t the only problem that can occur.
Fans and dehumidifiers will be a great help in drying the area completely.
