How To Prevent Further Damage In Your Home Due to Leaks

Here are a few steps to take to prevent any further damage from happening inside your home the next time you experience a leak.

  • Catch the water to keep it off the floor and furniture.  Use buckets or pots and keep an eye on them if the leak is heavy.
  • Move anything that the leaking water is touching to prevent damage to furniture and appliances.
  • Once the water has stopped dripping you can climb into the attic to see if there are any obvious signs of where the roof is leaking, this may be wet insulation, pooled water or water tracks on the walls.
  • The best step is to call a roofing professional. Climbing on the roof can be dangerous and if you are not sure what you are doing, you may make the initial problem larger.
