Even the smallest drips/leaks can add up quickly and cause substantial, costly damage. So be proactive when it comes to water damage. Start with these steps …
• Install a water shut-of device
This is the surest, easiest way to prevent wide-spread damage in the event of a leak.
• Turn off the water when traveling
This is the only way to prevent a leak from occurring while away.
• Arrange for property checks while way
Ask family, friends, neighbors or a caretaker to check your property for leaks and other issues when you travel. Even if they don’t find a problem immediately, it’s still better than finding it when you return.
• Check/install pipe insulation
Pipe insulation can be a life saver when temps drop. It’s simple, cheap and one of the best ways to help prevent burst pipes.
