Finding water damage, especially in your bathroom, is not a pleasant sight to see. It’s that unique place in your home where you get yourself refreshed, regain your positive energy or simply enjoy some privacy as you relax in a fragrant wash-tub.
Summer is over now. We are well into Autumn and the weather is cooling down. It’s the perfect time to think about what we can do to stop any water damage before the next wet season. But it’s not just the heavy downpours that come from storms that can cause disastrous water damage within our homes, what about the slow steady leaks that could be occurring at any time?
A ruptured water pipe is something people usually associate with extremely cold conditions in the middle of winter. As pipes freeze in the cold and then thaw out as the temperature rises, they can in fact leak and burst. Depending on where you live, ruptured pipes can happen at any time of the year. It won’t always be a pipe that’s easily accessible that ruptures; many times pipe fractures will take place inside of walls where it can go undetected for days, weeks or even months!
