It goes without saying that water damage can be extremely destructive to any residential or commercial property. If it is not addressed and cleaned quickly, not only will the water damage increase, but it can cause other potentially hazardous issues, such as mold and mildew build up.
The most common water damage cases are natural disasters, such as floods and hurricanes, but it can also be caused by wear and tear on the property in the form of roof or siding leaks, pipe bursts, defective gutters, and of course malfunctioning washing machines.
Home owners can never be too prepared for storm, hurricane, or flood damage to their homes. Below is a helpful checklist including several steps families can take to minimize property damage as a result of hazardous weather conditions.
