The average cost of water remediation in the country is around $3000, but it could be considerably higher than that. That fact alone should be enough for every homeowner to view water differently. If you have water damage to your home, it can include such things as mold, rot or other problems.
The problem is that water is difficult to keep out. Unless you have your home very well sealed up, it will find a way. Even if your home doesn’t have any external leaks, there are two other sources that are even more difficult to prevent – leaking pipes and condensation. If there is a tiny leak in a pipe, it can travel quite some distance along pipes and other surfaces to show up in a completely different area of your home. If this is the case, you might need to do some extensive work just to find the source. Condensation on the other hand can be battled with insulation and a dehumidifier. This is especially important if you have a lot of humid air coming in from the outside. If you find that you have to empty your dehumidifier very frequently, you should definitely look into getting your home better insulated.
