Homeowners In Coral Gables Prepare Against Flood Damage
Coral Gables Homeowners Prepare Their Homes From Flood Damage
Believe it or not, appliance failures happen more frequently and cause more damage to your home than a natural disaster, which makes how you respond to an emergency situation and whom you use to perform your repairs an issue of vital importance.
As the purchaser of a new home in the Coral Gables area; flood damage to the home you are about to purchase may be a big deal. Luckily, the seller is required to fill out a disclosure form and allow a home inspection, helping bring any past problems to light before you purchase.
Hurricanes happen far less often in our surrounding area than other kinds of unexpected flooding events. SERVPRO often finds catastrophic damage that occurs when residents leave home for the day or go on vacation for extended periods of time.
The common flooding issues that we address at SERVPRO on a near daily basis involves appliance failure or plumbing issues, where an appliance feed line breaks, flooding an entire floor of your home, the basement, or both, depending on the time it takes to discover the problem.
At SERVPRO, we have experienced flooding accidents involving your washing machine; where a hose bursts and can discharge hundreds of gallons of water every hour. We are also familiar with damages caused by breaks in the feed line of your ice maker, dishwasher supply lines, and even damaged water heaters.
To help avoid developing accidental flooding issues in your home, you can perform the proper routine inspections of areas containing a constant moisture source to determine if excessive moisture is present, a line is leaking, or other maintenance may be necessary. You may even want to disconnect such appliances when going on extended vacation or close the main water valve entirely until you return.
We have the ability to address these issues when they happen in your home, but taking the proper precautions to avoid these circumstances developing at all saves you quite a bit of trouble. As always, SERVPRO stresses the value of safety and preparation to prevent these kinds of incidents from forming on your property entirely.
