Water Damages and it's consequences
With the temperatures rapidly rising and the hot summer season rapidly approaching, our natural impulse is to crank up the air conditioning indoors!
Even throughout the summer, though, the potential of water damage remains a concern.
If air conditioning units are not properly maintained, they might cause drainage problems. Make sure you change your air filter on a regular basis to avoid this. Regular inspections and cleanings are also necessary to avoid any problems in your unit from becoming worse. The drainage pan is one thing to keep an eye on. Make sure there isn't any water seeping and gathering in the pan. Mold, mildew, and fungus may quickly grow and spread, especially in hotter conditions.
Another factor to consider is the possibility of pipes bursting. Although burst pipes are more common in the winter, they can still cause a nightmare for a house or property owner in the summer. Whenever your water pressure changes, it's a good idea to pay attention. While it could simply be an annoyance, it could also be a sign that something more serious is about to happen. This could be the result of corrosion, which causes leaks and, eventually, water to enter your house or office.
The possibility of pipes bursting does not end there. If you observe cracks emerging on the walls, especially around the corners, it's reasonable to presume your foundation has changed. However, watering the soil on a regular basis and even planting plants around the foundation perimeter is a simple remedy. Plants can help to regulate soil temperature and can also keep the ground together with their roots.
Water damage is the last thing any homeowner or business owner wants to deal with, regardless of the weather!
