The cost of repairing water damage to your home can be substantial and isn’t always covered by your insurance policy. That is why it is necessary to use preventative measures to avoid water damage that needs to be repaired. Once water heaters and washing machines were located in the basement of homes, now they are often on the main floor in a utility room and when they break the damage they do can be extensive. Water spilling onto your kitchen’s hard wood floor can warp the boards and promote mold and bacteria if it isn’t cleaned up properly. Cleaning services cost an average of $5000 in the US and that rate can go much higher if you have water leaking through the floor to the ceiling and on to the next floor. It is much easier to prevent water damage from occurring in the first place than paying for costly repairs after the fact, not to mention avoiding all of the water damage repair hazards that have to be dealt with.
