Water Damage Prevention 101 - Orange Restoration San Diego
Orange Restoration San Diego
Many of the homes which were built in America in the last 50 years were constructed using cheap materials and cheap labor. Whilst this helped to keep property prices down, it also means that many of these properties are now at risk from preventable water damage. As we age, so do the components in our homes, which mean that potentially serious problems are more and more likely to occur. For example, cheap plastic pipes can become very brittle over time, and even a small knock or bump could cause them to shatter. If that pipe happened to be a water supply pipe, you could then find yourself faced with an uncontrollable leak and thousands of pounds worth of water damage. Luckily, you can take steps to reduce the risks of professional water damage repairs at the properties which you manage. Sign up today for a free water damage prevention course for property managers, which will take place from 9am on January 4th 2016.
In most cases, the cost of fixing water damage will run into the thousands, and many types of damage are not covered by insurance policies. Many of the maintenance steps and proactive repairs that you will learn as part of this course will actually cost you less than $100 to complete. It doesn’t take a genius to work out that learning how to protect your properties can actually cut your costs in the long run. These routine maintenance steps will also help you to ensure that the homes which you manage remain inhabitable, profitable and pleasant for residents to live in.
As part of this course you will learn about the major causes of water damage, such as blocked gutters, damaged roofing, burst pipes, pinhole leaks, poor drainage and inadequate protection in bathroom or shower cubicles. The risks from all of these issues can be reduced by taking simple steps which you will learn about at this event. Taking the time to address these issues can help you to prevent a disaster from happening further down the line, so it is important that you learn how to address them properly. Many of the techniques that you will learn are simple, cost-effective and take very little time to complete, but they will save you from having to carry out complicated, costly and time consuming repairs in future. Even if you think that you already know a lot about water damage prevention techniques, the course will be good for those who are looking to refresh their skills. You can also pass on relevant tips to your residents, so that they will know what to do if disaster does strike whilst they are living in one of your homes.
Whilst the course is completely free to participants, voluntary donations to the Red Cross Disaster Relief fund are appreciated. The fund helps to supply food, shelter and medical services to those who have been affected by disasters at home and abroad. The support of the Red Cross helps to save hundreds of thousands of lives every year.
