As a homeowner, the best possible way to fight against water is to be on a crusade against wetness in general. Basically, this last tip is just a reminder to take the previous seriously. Remember to inspect those pipes, that roof, the water heater, the home’s humidity levels.
You should also adopt a no-tolerance policy regarding water outside of designated areas (shower, toilet, sink, etc). So if there’s a spill, clean it and dry it. If there’s a leak, fit it before it becomes worse and you will have to call a Michigan Plumber.
And as a general rule of thumb, if you spot any surface water damage in your home, that’s only the tip of the iceberg. What you can’t see is potentially deadly! So take the maintenance and repairs as seriously as possible.
Keeping your home totally dry is probably unrealistic, but you can be—and should be!—vigilant when it comes to protecting your home against water, humidity and mould. A quick look and fix today with a basement water proofing technician can save you a lot of time and money tomorrow.
