Fix leaks to prevent water damage

Fixing leaks is crucial to preserving ceilings, walls and flooring, lighting, and electrical systems. If a resident reports a leak, follow the leak to its source--whether it’s a hole in the roof or siding, a broken window, or a pipe that’s been nicked.


Prevent mold by keeping water out of the building 

Prevent mold before it gets out of control. Leaks from roofs, interior plumbing, caulk or grout that’s in disrepair can cause mold to grow in your floors and walls. Once you’ve sealed any leaks, use a mold-inhibiting product to clean and protect the area. Learn more at the EPA’s webpage: A Brief Guide to Mold, Moisture, and Your Home.
