Have you ever experienced water damage in your home? It’s not just extreme weather that can leave our home water damaged and our bank account drained from costly repairs. Most water damage in the home comes from appliances like the washing machine or water heater. There are steps you can take to make sure your aren’t faced with expensive water damage repairs, though.

  • Keep your appliances well maintained. Yearly inspections on dishwashers, washing machines, and water heaters is a good idea. A trained technician will be able to spot looming problems before they flood your home.
  • Use metal supply hoses instead of rubber on your washing machine. Metal ones have a much longer life and won’t be prone to cracking and allowing leaks.
  • Make sure toilets and sinks aren’t leaking. Not only can you waste thousands of gallons of water each year with a simple leak, those leaks could be going into the structure of your home and causing damage.

And finally, make sure you install our Sonin water alarm. This easy-to-install alarm will alert you early to water leaking in your home. Place the sensors under appliances, near hot water heaters, or anywhere you suspect you might have water leaking. The metal sensors on the alarm will sound when they both sense water contact. The alarm is loud, and can sound continuously for between 12 hours and 3 days so you won’t miss it. Our Sonin water alarm is affordable and can save you thousands of dollars in water damage!
