Water damage in your property can come from many sources. Leaking roofs, broken pipes, overflowing toilets, and heavy rains are just some of the common causes of water damage. In some instances, when you find water on your property, simply fixing the source of the leak and properly drying out the area is the right solution. However, properties that have been affected by significant amounts of water damage, experienced sewage backup, or undergone repeated exposure to water overtime may require a more extensive water damage restoration plan.
Whichever situation you find yourself experiencing, Jenkins Restorations has a team of experts that will provide the right solution for your needs. Our certified technicians will arrive on site quickly to begin the mitigation and drying process, as well as prevent any further damage. When extensive repairs are required, our dedicated project managers will work with you to develop a custom plan and get your property back to normal.
Clean out roof gutters – clogged gutters prevent water from draining away from the property and can result in overflow directly onto your foundation, which in turn can result in damage to the foundation and potential basement flooding.
Keep good drainage around your home or property – water that flows towards the home can also cause damage to the foundation and result in the need for costly repairs. Drainage should be established to push the water away from the property.
Check for water leaks – small leaks can cause big problems if they go unnoticed, so be sure to check your pipes for any leaks as part of your routine maintenance.
Use a drain snake instead of unclogging chemicals – chemicals can eat away at pipes and cause damage over time, whereas using a drain snake is a safe and effective alternative.
Be careful where you plant – invasive roots can cause damage to underground water lines. Always be sure you know an area is free of pipes and water lines before planting there.
Let water drip from faucets during cold months – this can help prevent your pipes from freezing and then bursting.
