Homes involve so many components and things to keep track of whether managing a home or remodeling or building a home. It’s important to homeowners to keep a home in tip-top shape while living there and then that well-maintained home is a selling point when the time comes to sell it. As homeowners work through the sometimes overwhelming number of things to do to maintain and operate a home, one of the biggest enemies to our homes and all built structures is water.
Water is everywhere and covers about 70% of the earth. Water shows up in and around our homes in many ways – rain and stormwater runoff, flooding of rivers, lakes and streams, and on the flip side, we also are working on water conservation. So many homes are destroyed by water and covered by insurance claims because of damage by water. Whether it’s flooding, hurricanes, mold and mildew, or busted pipes, there’s been damage to homes and buildings from it.
