A fire or flood in your home can wreak havoc in just a few minutes. Fortunately, most fires and floods that result from plumbing problems can be prevented. If you have a fire or flood in your home, we offer restoration services in Kansas City, but everyone knows that prevention is always best.
Clean Your Dryer Vent
Over 13,000 fires occur every year as a result of clogged dryer vents. You can clean dryer vents yourself or hire a professional to clean them.
Perform Yearly Gas Inspections for Your Gas-Powered Appliances
Gas-powered heaters, stoves, and water heaters are standard devices in most American homes, and a small leak can cause catastrophic results. Many companies will come to your house, inspect individual appliances, and check carbon monoxide levels. We suggest hiring a professional to do this inspection at least once a year.
Change Batteries in Your Smoke Alarm and Carbon Monoxide Detector
Your home should be fully equipped with smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors, all of which need to be tested regularly. Test monthly, replace batteries every 6-12 months and replace detectors at least once every ten years.
Inspect Plumbing for Leaks
At least once a year, inspect your plumbing for minor leaks or other damage. You can do this yourself or hire a professional plumber to do it for you. Small leaks will never repair themselves; they will only get worse.
Insulate Exposed Plumbing to Prevent Freezing
Any plumbing outside your home is vulnerable to freezing and bursting when the temperature drops. Ensure external plumbing is appropriately insulated and covered to prevent accidents. We also recommend inspecting any plumbing in your attic to ensure it is adequately insulated. Unusually cold temperatures can freeze pipes in your attic and lead to a flood inside your home.
Schedule Regular Maintenance and Inspections for Your HVAC System and Water Heater
Your favorite HVAC company and plumber will most likely inspect your HVAC system and water heater for a nominal charge or for free. Clogged air conditioner drain lines and rusted-out water heaters are two common sources of water damage in homes.
