Protect Your Home From the Threat of Water | SERVPRO® of Hayward
Water is everywhere! We use it in our homes every day, so that opens us up to the threat of water damage at any time. While some water damage can be instantly obvious, other situations can develop slowly without many signs.
It takes some investigative work to discover a water leak in your home. We can help you pinpoint the parts of your home that are most vulnerable to leaks in our latest blog post below.

Bathroom fixtures are one of the most common places for water issues to occur in our homes. Sinks, bathtubs and toilets all have water lines that could burst or wear away over time.
Any time you are doing a routine cleaning of your bathroom, check your water lines and the seals around them. If you notice wearing or deterioration, address these issues right away to prevent a major issue from occurring later.

We are so grateful that appliances like water heaters, dishwashers and washing machines exist! They make a busy life a little easier. However, whenever water is used in your home, the threat of water damage is present.
Routinely checking for leaks behind and under these appliances can help you stop a water problem in its tracks. Pull them away from the wall, unplug them and do a full check around the appliance. If there is any staining or peeling paint on the wall or if there is visible mold growth, call us immediately!

We all know how brutal the weather can be in Hayward! Whether we are in the heat of the summer experiencing heavy rain or are hunkered down during a blizzard in the winter, we know how destructive water can be.
We are lucky enough to be in an area of the United States that can see snow for half of the year. We already had our first brush with snow back in October. Since the threat of water damage is so constant for us, it is important to prepare your home as soon as you are able when the weather starts to cool down.
You can help reduce the risk of water damage in your home by controlling the excess moisture. Sealing any gaps around your windows or doors and addressing any drafty areas of your home can help prevent condensation or moisture buildup.
It is also important to clear out your gutters and remove debris from your roof so your gutter system can work efficiently for you all year long.
If you experience water damage inside your home or business, call us 24⁄7. We have the experience and equipment to get your property back in working order fast.
