A water alarm can be placed anywhere in your home to prevent water damage. This alarm can detect the presence of moisture and alert you to a leak before it becomes a problem.Installing a water alarm can protect your home’s value, indoor air quality and your family’s health. Plus, installation only takes a few minutes, but the benefits will last for many years to come. So, what are the other benefits of installing a water alarm in your home?
Prevent costly repairs: While some water damage is obvious -- there’s no mistaking a flooded laundry room or basement -- others are not as apparent. For instance, you may not notice water soaking into the floor of an unused part of your home until substantial damage has been caused. A water alarm can detect this problem and alert you immediately.
Protect tenants and property in a multi-family unit: If you live in or rent out a multi-family unit with multiple floors, a water alarm is a must. Leaks flow downhill, so if neighbors upstairs have a problem, downstairs neighbors will too. Installing water alarms in each unit will give you peace of mind and protect your investment, even when some units are vacant.
Prevent dangerous mold and mildew: The mold that grows after a flood or leak is more than just unsightly, it's a health hazard too. A water alarm can help prevent mildew and mold from forming, so you can avoid this common nuisance.
Protect your pipes: If you live in a region with cold climate, you know the damage that can be caused by burst pipes. A water alarm can detect the first signs of trouble, and some are even equipped to activate your heater and warm your pipes to a safe temperature.
