Ways to Avoid Water Damage

Make sure you keep your gutters cleaned year round.  The weight from the leaves, branches, and other debris can lead to sagging gutters.  Check all of the roof's valleys and remove debris as well.  The valleys are areas prone to leaking because of the build-up of leaves and branches causing major damage to both the exterior and interior of your home.  The top side of chimneys may have leaves trapped between the roof and the chimney.  These areas may not show signs of water leaks or damage immediately but over time water stains may start to show in your home's ceilings and it may be to late.  These types of repairs can cost you thousands of dollars in the long run.

Don't avoid those small drops of water you see underneath your sink or the stains they may have left behind.  Take the time out to examine the plumbing in both your kitchen and bathrooms.  Those small stains may seem harmless but they may actually being the least of your worries.  Mold grows in moist areas where air does not circulate well.  If you see signs of water or stains, don't just wipe up the area.  Make sure you fix the plumbing problem by tightening and/or sealing the pipes and airing the area out immediately.
