Here at PuroClean Fire & Water Damage Specialists, we know that your home is important to you, and we want to help you keep it in the best possible condition. While we can help clean up your home in the event that you suffer water damage, the best strategy when it comes to water damage is to try to prevent it if at all possible. In this article, we will go over three tips on how to prevent or avoid water damage to your property.

  1. Know How to Shut Off Your Water Main-Your water main is the place where your plumbing system connects to the water supply (such as your city’s water system or a well). One thing you can do to prevent water damage is to know where this connection point is, and to shut that valve immediately if you experience a plumbing emergency. The second that water starts going places that it shouldn’t, you should cut off the supply to prevent more water from spilling out.
  2. Regularly Check for Leaks- Another tip for preventing water damage is to regularly inspect your appliances and plumbing for leaks. Even a small leak can do significant water damage if it’s not caught and fixed promptly, so keep an eye out for this type of problem and get it fixed as soon as possible.
  3. Install Water Detection Sensors- A third way that you can help prevent water damage to your home is to install water detection sensors at key points, such as by your toilets, washing machine, dishwasher, sump pump, and water heater. As the name suggests, these devices are designed to detect when they are in contact with moisture, and they will alert you if that occurs. This kind of early detection will help you prevent major damage.
