Water and Humidity
Water and humidity are one of the many enemies of a home, acting as a catalyst for mold growth and overall damage to a home. Here are some measures you can take to ensure your home or property aren’t damaged by water, rain, or humidity.
- Waterproofing Materials - If a home is older or has problems with structural integrity, simple rainfall could spell disaster in the form of water damage and mold. A simple fix to consider is waterproofing materials that are made for the walls and roofs of homes that ensure your home or property is watertight and dry.
- Appliances - Many water damage scenarios are caused by faulty appliances and hardware. To counteract this simply check and ensure that all appliances that use water and pipes such as washers and showers are properly functioning without any leaks.
- Water detection - In severe cases you might want to install water and humidity detection devices in your property. These devices will notify you if the humidity levels in your home are where they should be ensuring you know of any potential water damage and deal with the issue properly before it becomes more serious.
