  • A noticeable increase in your water bill.

  • Stains on ceilings or walls.

  • Peeling paint or wallpaper.

  • Warped or swollen floors.

If you notice any of these signs, act quickly. Prompt water damage repairs can prevent further deterioration of your property, saving you time and money in the long run.

Prevent the Need for Repairs by Reducing Water Damage Risk

Preventing water damage starts with regular maintenance and vigilance. Homeowners should routinely check for leaks in and around plumbing fixtures, including faucets, toilets, and showerheads. They should also regularly inspect water heaters, washing machines, and dishwashers to catch potential issues with supply lines and other failures before they can escalate. By performing these simple checks, they can reduce the likelihood of water damage and the need for extensive repairs.

Preparing for Repairs After Water Damage Occurs

When water damage does occur, taking swift action is critical to mitigate further damage. Shut off your water main in case of a pipe leak or similar disaster, or call the local water provider to receive help with shut off to prevent further damage. Document visible damages, contact your insurer if the incident requires filing a claim, and get in touch with a restoration service for cleanup. Water repair technicians can often respond within hours of a call to inspect damages, formulate a plan of action, and provide a detailed repair estimate.
