Preventing Water Damage in Your Home


Easy Ways to Prevent Water Damage

Water damage can be serious and often affect more than your home, but also your household and personal items. For this reason, it’s important for all homeowners to take steps to prevent water damage. To help you get started, Thistle DKI has some great tips to offer.

Clogged Drains

Nobody likes to unclog drains, however, the reality of the situation is that these small annoyances can quickly become large problems. Tour your home and check each of your drains to ensure water runs without obstruction and without any water pooling in your basin. If you come across any blockages, be sure to clear them before the day is over.


A small crack in your tiles or roof paneling is all that is needed for water to make its way into your home via your attic. Make your way up to your attic and move all of the items away from your walls and inspect for any signs of:

  • Water
  • Moisture building up on your items
  • Mold
  • Sunlight

If you notice any of these items then water either is or can make its way into your attic. A lot of light and a visual search is all that’s needed to find the problem, which you should look to remedy as soon as possible.

Small Leaks

While leaks may seem like nothing more than an annoyance, it can be a good sign and call to action. A cracked or worn washer is the likely culprit, and while the leak may be small now, if you are away at work and the washer finally gives out, then you are likely to return home to a lot more than a leaking faucet. Tour your home and test each of your faucets and toilets to ensure they work correctly. If you can see any leaks, either from the faucet or toilet basin, then be sure to find out what the real problem is and fix it.
