State Farm reminds the public to avoid water damage to their home while away on vacation.
Las Vegas, Nev., June 16, 2011 - Summer is finally here, and you’ve planned a fantastic vacation packed with fun, soaking in some sun, and plenty of relaxation. Don’t add to your laundry list upon returning home by having to clean up a flooded house.
“Some of the most damaging water losses we see occur when our customers are on vacation,” said State Farm spokeswoman Angela Thorpe.“That’s why we want to remind everyone, before they leave on vacation, to add preparing your home for the getaway as part of their routine.”
Here are some tips and a room-by-room checklist to stop the leak, secure your home, and have a worry free vacation.
The bathroom is another water damage hot spot. Unfortunately, the repairs in the bathroom can be more than the average person can handle themself. Don’t hesitate to call in a professional. The price you pay for repairs could be a fraction of what you could pay later.
The basement, laundry or utility room is loaded with water use appliances so you would want to check these on a regular basis.
These and many more tips are available at statefarm.com or you can visit with a local State Farm Agent.
