WaterLeak

Protect your home and business from water damage

Many people think about storms and flooding when the topic of water damage comes up, but there are other everyday risks in homes and businesses. Common culprits of plumbing leaks include water heaters, dishwashers, ice makers, washing machines, sinks, toilets, showers, and tubs.

Here are a few things you can do to prevent water damage.

  • Know where the main water shutoffs are located. Install water shutoff valves on water lines under sinks and toilets and water lines leading to outside faucets.
  • Check washing machine, dishwasher, and refrigerator hoses for signs of deterioration and replace hoses that show any evidence of cracking.
  • Repair small leaks around appliances before they become a problem.
  • Know and follow the recommended maintenance procedures for your appliances, such as periodically draining the water heater to clean out the sediment at the bottom of the tank.
  • Run plenty of water when using your garbage disposal so it won't clog and cause a leak.
  • When a problem does occur, hire a reputable contractor.

  • About 1,200 tornadoes hit the U.S. each year;
  • Most tornadoes occur between 4:00 – 9:00pm;
  • A typical tornado travels around 10 – 20 miles per hour; and
  • The strongest wind speed measured in a tornado was 318 miles per hour on May 3, 1999 near Bridge Creek/Moore, Oklahoma.
