Even the smallest drip can quickly turn into a major issue, causing hundreds or even thousands of dollars of damage in your home. Water damage can be extremely devastating.

Water Damage Prevention Tips from ServiceMaster of Baltimore
- Check for Leaks: First, turn off all of the appliances in your home that use water. Next, go outside and take a look at your water meter. Record the reading. Leave the appliances off for an hour or so and go back outside to check the meter. If the reading has changed, you probably have a leak.
- Check Appliances: Check the hoses on your dishwasher and washing machine, two common causes of water damage. If you notice any leaks or standing water under your hoses or discoloration, replace the hoses as soon as possible. Your refrigerator is also a common culprit of water damage, especially refrigerators with built-in ice makers. Sometimes the lines to the ice maker burst, causing water damage.
- Check Sinks and Tubs: Check your sinks and bathtub to make sure nothing is leaking. Is the caulking intact? Sinks and tubs often need to be re-caulked to prevent water damage.
