Water Damage Prevention

Did you know that water damage is among the top 3 reasons that homeowners in Lawton, Oklahoma file an insurance claim year after year? Reduce the risk of incurring water damage in your home this winter with these water damage prevention tips.

Common Winter Issues

From our experience in water extraction services, the most common leak prone areas during the winter months are bathroom sinks, outside water faucets, hot water tanks, and attics with plumbing. Recommendations for water damage prevention:

  • Bathrooms – When the temperature falls below freezing, keep bathroom cabinet doors open and leave hot and cold faucets at a steady low stream. These tips are good for all faucets within your home.

  • Outside faucets – Protect outside faucets with an insulated cover. Try not to use outside faucets during the winter. This helps reduce the risk of frozen pipes. If you have a crawlspace under your home, be sure to close vents and ensure pipes are properly insulated during the winter.
  • water damage
    Pipes in the attic are prone to freezing.

    Hot water tanks – The average life expectancy of a water heater is 8-12 years, dependent on many different factors. Tanks that are never drained tend to leak earlier. Click here for more tips from Lowe’s about when to replace a water heater.

  • Attic plumbing – Attic pipes are more prone to freeze. This can cause a major flood in your home. If your plumbing is in the attic, it needs to be properly insulated in order to prevent freezing and bursting.

When Prevention Does Not Work

So you tried our water damage prevention tips but the elements had another idea? Sometimes the best preventative methods cannot stop a catastrophe from happening. If a flood occurs in your home or business, immediately call a professional cleaning company to perform proper water extraction services. Don’t try to clean up the water damage on your own; mold and bacteria can form in your carpets and walls within hours. Only professional cleaning equipment can safely and completely remove water damage in your home. A Team Carpet Clean offers 24/7 emergency water extraction services to residents and businesses in Lawton, Oklahoma and surrounding areas of Comanche County.

Water Damage Testing Tips

water damage testing tipsOklahoma has been known to break rainfall records during the spring season. Due to the excessive flooding every spring, we receive many calls for rain water getting in homes. Here are our DIY water damage testing tips to test your home for potentially harmful moisture that should be removed with professional extraction, cleaning, and drying equipment.

Tips on how to check for “smart” water that could damage or produce a foul odor in the future:

  • Get some toilet paper or a paper towel.
  • Place on floor about 6 inches from exterior walls. Common areas for water to collect are near doors and walls where the yard slopes down towards your home. Moisture is also commonly found coming through cracks in the foundation.
  • With your bare foot, press down as firm as possible. Your carpet cushion or “pad” will absorb 90% of the moisture and spread to dry areas of the cushion. Continue to do this traveling in the direction of the slope of your natural foundation or along the tack strip holding your carpet in place.
  • By applying pressure to the cushion, you will force the “smart” water to the carpet fibers. It’s a hide and seek game, and if you don’t find it now you will smell it later and harmful mold is likely to be present.

If you notice moisture during this test and live in Comanche County Oklahoma, contact A-Team Carpet Clean at 580-713-1018. A professional water extraction and carpet cleaning company should have your home dry again in 24 hours and can provide tips and ideas on how to fix the problem.
