Can Water Damage be a Safety Hazard for New Castle Homeowners?
We know water damage can be overwhelming. You’re worried about your possessions and the damage to your home. But you may need to be concerned for YOUR health and wellbeing in a water damage situation too. Here are some things you need to keep in mind when you have water damage in your New Castle home:
- Electrical Hazards
Water and electricity do not mix well for you and your safety. When there’s water in your home, make sure you’re cautious and don’t use appliances in affected areas.
- Slip and Fall Hazards
This may seem silly but be cautious of slipping and falling when it comes to excess water. You don’t want to see a physical injury to go along with the damage water creates in your New Castle home.
If you see water damage on the ceiling, be extra careful. If your ceiling has water stains, the room above it has water damage, or the ceiling is sagging, stay out of the room. The last thing you need is to be in the room when your ceiling falls.
