Summer Vacation Plans? Protect Your Home From Water Damage While You Are Away!
Summer 2021 officially kicks off June 21st, 2021! And with summer usually comes a vacation. We all could use a vacation and the last thing you want to worry about on vacation is a water damage in your home when you return. One of the most common causes of home water damage during the summer is when a family leaves to go on vacation. We leave our homes empty for days, weeks, and some people even months and the tiniest of leaks left unchecked can cause a substantial amount of water damage that can be devastating!
In order to prevent water damages from occurring while you are on vacation it is important to prepare your home! We here at SERVPRO have some tips to ensure the safety of your home!
- Turn off the main water. Turning off the water main to your home will avoid water pressure from building up in your pipes and weaken them.
- Turn off your water heater. This prevents your water heater from having any problem while you are away.
- Drain your pipes. Running faucets in your home will ensure that the pipes are alleviated of any pressure.
- Have a friend or neighbor check on your home. With so much that can go wrong when we are away from our homes having someone to check on your house will be the best way to sure any situation that unfortunately can occur will be handled quickly and this will decrease the amount of damage that can happen.
