Oftentimes we do not immediately clean up spills because something gets in the way or we consider that the spill is minor not to be bothered with that that can be a costly mistake. How can this be prevented?
Water damage in all its many varieties can be easily prevented but not so easily fixed. If the water has spilt out your bath that and you do not immediately dry the floor as much as possible some part of that liquid will seep in and could cause mould and mildew development. This can lead to not only expensive repairs also potential health issues. This can be doubly bad if you have hardwood floors as even a very small amount of water seeping into limp and cause them to warp and twist. Sometimes the hardwood floors can be repaired but often they need to be replaced.
One of the worst and most rapid causes of damage is a burst or otherwise broken pipe. If this happens inside your home you may have Greek deal of water flooding through your house that time stop in this case the first thing you should do is not going to investigate the pipe but rather to switch off the main supply of water to your house. After switching off the main supply you will be able to deal with the burst pipe.
