Have You Looked Under Your Sink?

Leaking pipe under sink Be sure to check your pipes!

Have You Looked Under Your Sink?

One of the most common leaks found is right under your sink. Most homeowners never think to look there, and the leak goes unnoticed until it causes major damage!

  • Make sure you check once a month under you sink for leaks.
  • Don't keep a lot of stuff under the sink, that will make it harder to notice a leak 
  • Line your cupboard with a cupboard liner, so that it can be protected from moisture.
  • When the weather is below freezing leave your cupboard open to allow heat in to keep the pipes warm
  • Do moisture checks once a month to make sure the wood/plywood is not wet 

Not looking for potential leaks could leak to water damage and mold issues.

Winter Storms Cause an Array of Water Damage!

tree fallen on a house Downed Trees leads to Water Damage!

Wowzers!

Winter season really did a number on us here in the Pacific Northwest! From wind storms to ice storms we had an astonishing amount of falling trees on homes. This lead to massive water damage as the rain did not stop coming. 

Freezing weather also caused  frozen pipes.

If you have a pipe burst, SERVPRO has trained professionals that can repair all the damages and have your home looking “Like it never even happened.” In the meantime, here are some tips to help prevent your pipes from freezing.

  • If the crawl space access is inside the home, set a fan in the opening to blow warm air from the home to the foundation 
  • Leave the cabinet doors under the sink open to keep the pipes warm 
  • Caulk and seal around doors, windows and faucets 
  • Close all foundation vents that are near pipes

Coming Home After a Fire!

Woman with hands on her head looking at a burnt house When the unexpected happens!

There are so many things to consider when returning home after a fire. Some things to watch out for are structural damage, mold, and poor roof drainage. Not only will there be damage caused by heat and soot, most people are unaware that water damage comes hand in hand with fire damage. If water has collected in your walls or ceilings, it can cause the floor to buckle and/or weaken the structure. A lot of water is used to put out a house fire, if that water is left pooled on the roof, it can make its way into the ceiling, walls and crawl space of the home. If not taken care of in a timely fashion, this can also lead to mold. 

Call your local SERVPRO for an inspection before returning home! We have all the tools and trained professionals to restore your home and make sure it’s safe for you and your family.
