Water damage can have lasting results if not handled quickly and correctly. The first step is to extract any residual water, and then everything must be throughly dried to prevent warping, swelling, and break down of the drywall and wood. Additionally, if water is not completely dried mold can start to grow causing additional damage.

Tips for Winter Water Damage Prevention
For residents in the White Mountains and surrounding areas, extreme winter weather can cause plumbing pipes to freeze and possibly burst, causing flooding and costly water damage to your home.
Taking preventative measures can reduce or eliminate the risk of frozen pipes and the aftermath of water damage.
Here are four tips for reducing the risk of water damage during the winter months.
- Garden hoses:
A garden hose can be the cause of a busted interior pipe. When the water in the hose freezes, it expands increasing pressure throughout your plumbing system. Make sure to disconnect all garden hoses from outside spigots.
- Exposed Pipes:
Plumbing pipes in an unheated area, such as an attic, crawl space, and garage, are at risk of freezing. Often, inexpensive foam pipe insulation is enough for moderately cold climates.
- Leaving for winter?
For those that leave their houses for an extended period of time to escape the cold winter months, additional preventative measures must be taken to adequately protect the home from frozen pipes.
- Make sure the furnace is set no lower than 55 degrees.
- Shut off the main water supply and drain the system by opening all faucets and flushing the toilets.
