Sometime you do not realized you have water problems until is too late and damages are already started. We can advise you about some aspects you must consider at home in relation to water damages that may come up. Be careful about:
Pipes at home can burst at any time. The main reason of this is the natural aging of them; age, corrosion, water pressure or lack of maintenance can ruin your pipes. No matter the material of your pipes they can be exposed to being damaged; plastic one are easily cracked due to heat and long period of use; metal ones (galvanized iron, for instance) can be rusty and that corrosion causes a pipe burst. Other factors like irregular flow of water and high pressure of water might also burst pipes at home. Proper maintenance and replacement of damaged pipes are always an option to avoid future water damage. Consult with ALC to find specialized people to manage this issue.
Laundry Room flooded
Water machines can also cause water damage. Be careful about them because they have so many items that must be working properly. A broken hose can flood the laundry room easily; they conduct more than 600 gallons of water in an hour which really invades the laundry room immediately. Drainage is also important to be checked because if it is obstructed, water will mess all around. We recommend you not to overload the machine to prevent ulterior water accidents.
Some items in the kitchen when not working properly may produce water damage: a clogged drainage may start leaks, a broken pipe under the sink may also leak; appliances that are connected to water pipes like refrigerators, dishwashers or garbage disposals. All of them demand regular maintenance in order to prevent future damages as from water. If there is any failure, call us immediately to find a technician that manages the problem.
This area of your home has a constant flow of water; but if everything is in good condition, you will never have any problem with water damage. Check water supply lines because they are easy to break down; check regularly toilet bowls, bathtub and sinks because despite of the apparent Strength of the material, they might crack. Pay attention to any water stream.
An obstruction in pipes is very common to happen and damages after it can be extremely problematic because pipes are along your house. Obstructions can happen easily because hair, soap, rest of food, grease and any other material can clogged them. Obstructions provoke overflow or bursting pipes.
