Protect your Home Before You Go on Vacation this Summer
Protect your home from water damage while you're out of town this summer.
June 20th marks the official first day of summer. The most common cause of home water damage in the months of summer is when families leave on vacation. They leave their homes empty for days, weeks and sometimes even months. If there is any kind of leak, even a small one, it'll be left unchecked and can cause a substantial amount of damage by the time someone ever notices. This could be devastating.
In order to prevent water damage in the summer while on vacation it's important that you prepare your home against water damage whenever you're leaving it.
Follow these actionable tips to ensure the safety of your home.
- Turn off the main water - shutting off the water main to your house will avoid water pressure from building up in your pipes and weaken the pipes.
- Drain your pipes - Running the faucets in your home will ensure that pipes are relieved of any pressure
- Turn off water heater - Not only will this save you money but prevent any chance of the water heater having a problem.
- Have a friend check your home - so many things can go wrong in your home without having someone present and the best way to make sure it's handled quickly is to have someone checking on your home.
