Hints to Prevent Water Damage

Even small leaks can turn into major problems, so knowing how to prevent water damage is a good thing to know. Sometimes just a little time and effort can prevent a lot of heartache and hassle. Mosaic Insurance, your local provider of home insurance agent in Prescott, would like to share some tips with you that can help prevent water damage in many situations.

Water Pressure - Make sure your water pressure is not set too high. It should be set between 60 and 80 PSI. If you don’t know what your water pressure is, for just a few dollars you can purchase a gauge that will help you test your pressure for the appropriate level.

Appliances - Standard hoses on appliances should be checked on a regular basis, as they tend to deteriorate over time. Keep up maintenance on all appliance hoses, because slow leaks from worn out hoses can cause major damage. If you find one of the hoses is rubber, we suggest replacing them with longer lasting stainless steel braided hoses or replacing them approximately every three years.

Bathroom Tiles - Replacing cracked tiles and re-grouting when it’s needed will help keep water from leaking into the walls or floor of your bathroom.

Roof shingles - Examine the shingles on your roof. Worn, turned up edges or missing shingles may allow water to seep in and should be repaired as quickly as possible.

A lot of water damage occurs when you and your family are away from home. Make a practice to avoid running the washing machine or dishwasher while you’re out. This way if a leak occurs you can shut off the appliance right away. When you leave for vacations, you may want to turn off the water supply to appliances.

Water damage is not always an easy or quick repair, Mosaic Insurance hopes these tips will help keep your house nice and dry this year. We would also remind you that we are here to help with your Prescott home insurance needs. Just give us a call at 928-458-7374 to speak with one of our insurance professionals.
