Active Maintenance Means Avoiding Water
Did you know that you have the equivalent of thousands of gallons of water coursing through your home a day? Yup. Your main water line alone has about 15-20 gallons of water a second moving through it. Now it does not mean you use all that water, but it does mean if something happens to the integrity of your pipes, then you are looking at a disaster.
911 Restoration of Washington DC, and their water damage Oakton team want to help you prevent that. Therefore, we want to provide you with great advice by an IICRC certified team that wants to see that your home stays dry.
Now, the pipes range from the exposed ones underneath your sinks to the hidden ones behind walls. So, when it comes to making sure they are running in tip top shape, it is all about checking in on them monthly.
For exposed pipes see if the area is moist, or if it has mold. If not, then they are not leaking. When it comes from keeping them from bursting in the winter, provide them additional insulation or even providing a heat lamp is effective.
Furthermore, respect the waste lines in your home by only using them for their intended purposes. For hidden pipes, check your water meter once a month and compare it to your utility bill. A huge discrepancy means there is a leak.
Next comes water connected appliances. Keeping them from breaking means also inspecting them monthly. Most user manuals recommend changing them every decade, but they fail more frequently than that. Changing them out before they leak will save you a headache. Trust us.

When We Were There for an Oakton Customer
Our water damage Oakton team loves bringing people a fresh start when they need one the most. Take this example of how we were there to aid a customer when they needed us.
One evening a customer set their washing machine for delicate mode, and then came back 40 minutes to find the place swamped. He navigated through the suds and the smell of detergent, opened the washer, and discovered that his clothes were not even moist. As it turns out, the moment he left, it started to leak.
He then gave us a call at 911 Restoration Washington DC, and we assured him that everything was going to be okay. We arrived within the hour. What makes us different than other restoration companies is that our customers get same day service for all emergencies. That means we show up with everything we need to get the job done right, the first time.
Since this type of water damage was a category 2, meaning that it was somewhat harmful to human health, we were able to salvage all his belonging. First we fished them out, sanitized, and dried them. He was especially ecstatic about that.
Following that, we set up vacuums, as to safely remove the water. After that we began to set up dehumidifiers to prevent mold growth from happening. See, water and moisture can activate the naturally occurring mold spores in the air, and we did not want that to happen. And, as we aim to restore and prevent damage, it did not happen.
The homeowner was back to using their washing machine in one day’s time. That is what we aim for at 911 Restoration. Bringing people simple and effective solutions is what we pride ourselves on.
