A sinking feeling: water damage and your waterbed


If there's one thing that a great deal of human effort and a great deal of science has been dedicated towards its a good nights sleep. Countless hours of an expended trying to create the perfect sleeping experience. From memory foam mattresses to adjustable beds and of course to the waterbed. Water beds are a strange contraption that feels a bit funny at first but can give you many restful night's sleep. One major problem with waterbeds is their main ingredient, water. If your bed ever becomes seriously punctured you may be in for a great deal of water damage. The average waterbed contains gallons upon gallons of water and if that becomes released you will have a miniature tsunami in your bedroom.

How do you prevent your waterbed from becoming punctured? Prevention is by far the best method. Keep anything sharp away from the surface of the bed and this applies especially to house cats. If you notice a small puncture then drain the bed as per the manufacturers recommendation. It is far better to drain the bed in a controlled situation and then to have the puncture suddenly become worse and have Niagara falls to deal with.

If your bed becomes puncture and starts to leak on your floor you may not notice it immediately. If left unattended water damage could become permanent and extremely costly. The instant you noticed water leaking from your bed you should identify the source of the leak and see if it's something you can deal with yourself. It is not some you can do wish you should contact a water damage restoration company to help you with the repairs.
