Managing Leaks Under Your Sink and 3 Steps for Minimizing Damage To Your Home
Sink leaks are a common household issue. However, when one happens in your home, it may feel like a major disaster. Flooding, broken pipes and a soaked floor can be costly and time consuming to repair. However, there are a few actions you can take to minimize the damage caused by leaks under your kitchen sink.
1. Shut Off the Water Turning off the water in your home can reduce the flood waters, especially if a broken pipe is causing it to gush out rapidly. Know where the shutoff valves are, this way you will not waste precious time looking for them during a plumbing flood. Turning off the water might also help you see what type of damage you are dealing with.
2. Call Your Insurance Company Calling your insurance company right away after a flood is a wise idea because it can help you file a claim the same day, which may result in a quicker payout for kitchen repair. Go over the details of the flooding with your agent. Let him or her know whether you need to take pictures or if the company plans to send a claims adjuster onsite. Reaching out to your agent quickly may also prevent delays later, when the claim is reviewed.
