Wherever Condensation Forms, Water Damage can Take Hold in Your West Palm Beach House

Water damage to your West Palm Beach can take completely over your home.

Moisture content in your West Palm Beach home's air fluctuates and can vary between different rooms. Many of the things your family does everyday uses water. Most of these use hot water, but heat does not always play a role in how humid your home might be at any given moment. Even cool water, like from your refrigerator's drip pan, can raise the amount of water vapor in the kitchen.

Dampness trapped within your property in West Palm Beach makes water damage much more likely to occur. We can help you prevent this from happening, or mitigate any current, existing deterioration. However, preventing situations that might cause problems typically cost homeowners less than mitigation and restoration. 

Preventing problematic situations also protects contents like furniture and personal belongings, increasing its cost-effectiveness. It is possible to do the majority of these measures easily, as well. 

One of the most effective ways that significantly decreases water vapor in the air is checking the ducts between the vent to the outside and the bathroom, stove, and dryer for leaks. Tiny holes that seem inconsequential cost increase your monthly expenses because not only do these allow steam to exit the ducts before all of it gets pushed outside by an exhaust fan, small breaks and tears can force your system to work harder. This can wear out your system's components faster and raise your monthly electric bill. Our building services crew can help by inspecting your house's ventilation system and repairing any worn areas.

Other ways that a homeowner can decrease the water vapor content include not opening the dishwasher until it has completely cooled inside, running the exhaust fan when cooking or showering, cleaning out the clothes dryer lint trap, and using the air conditioner when the weather is humid. Making sure that any air conditioner units installed in a window drain properly can also help prevent water damage. Checking to make sure that the drip pan under the refrigerator is level can protect the floor, also.
