Tips for Preventing Water Damage in Hitterdal?
I am grateful for indoor plumbing!
Did you know that indoor plumbing was introduced in America in the 1840s, and only became common in households after 1950? A whole new plumbing industry developed that is still going strong! At SERVPRO® of Moorhead, we respond to water damage emergencies throughout the year, and some of these emergencies could have been prevented. Here are some tips from the Institute for Business and Home Safety to prevent water damage:
- Never pour grease down the drain.
- Plant trees away from lateral drain lines to prevent roots from damaging piping.
- If your home’s sewer system is connected to the city’s sewer system—a particular problem for older homes—or if you are located downhill or below street level, contact a plumbing professional to install a backflow prevention assembly into your sewer system.
- Call a professional if you notice signs of a plumbing problem—an increased monthly water bill, banging pipes, rust stains, moisture in the walls or on the floor, and signs of wet soil erosion near the foundation.
