AVOID WATER DAMAGE AND WATER LOSS THIS WINTER
SERVPRO loves to help; we want to remind you of a few things you can do to prevent any water loss this winter, mainly because, in this season, winter can affect in several ways your property.
Protect your pipes
Burst pipes are one of the most common water loss causes of property damage in the winter, and also a costly one. Water pipes have the potential to freeze and burst when the outside temperature reaches shallow temperatures, so you better double-check them out.
Examine the exterior
Water can do severe damage when it's flowing where it shouldn't. We suggest you step outside and look at your roof, gutters, and downspouts. Broken shingles or damaged flashing can signify that water might be penetrating your roof. Please take a look at them and make sure everything is all good. It is always better to rectify and avoid any further damage, especially at this time of the year; it's expensive, and you'll have to attend immediately.
Look for leaks
Look for leaks in your bathrooms, sink, showers, toilets, and tubs. Same with kitchen, garage, and basically anything that includes plumbing, it's worth it to check them out. Also, leaks can often be detected by performing a simple check that involves turning off the water inside and outside the home; you should try it just in case!
SERVPRO wishes you happy holidays!
