Lake in Your Laundry Room?

Air conditioners break, pipes leak, and plumbing backs up, but what can we do about it? As property owners it is important to have your home and appliances maintained properly and frequently. Despite the inconvenience that maintenance might seem like, water damage is much, much worse. 

Common Issues

Recently we have been seeing a lot water damage caused by air handlers. In many cases, the air handlers leak for an extended period of time and eventually cause the ceiling to cave in. In cases like these, not only do you have water damage, but also a mess of wet insulation and drywall. As the summer heat continues, we all work our air conditioners a little harder than they're used to which can lead to malfunction and overfilling of the AC drip pan. Have your HVAC system checked and air ducts cleaned to prevent this cause of loss. 

Over time even the best plumbing can fail, whether it just be regular wear and tear or a random break. Many homeowners have made the switch over to PEX piping due to its durability and temperature resilience. Another common cause of water loss is a leaking water heater. It is recommended that water heaters are serviced annually to take care of buildup and issues before they can cause damage. 

If your home or business is affected by water damage, our highly trained team is here to help 24/7, 365 days a year.
