Insurance Agents Explain How Sensors Can Prevent Costly Water Damage, Freehold, New Jersey

Water leaks inside your house can cause significant damage to floors, walls, and foundation. To protect your home from this threat, you can place water sensors in leak-prone areas around your living space. Ultimately, these tools serve as inexpensive, simple solutions to catastrophic water damage. If you own a home, the flood insurance professionals at NorthEast Insurance Services in Freehold, NJ, are happy to explain how water sensors can save the day.

insuranceIf a faucet drips in your bathroom while nobody is home, it could take hours for someone to walk in and notice the issue. By the time they shut the spigot off, it may be too late to prevent water damage. It’s impossible to monitor every area of your home at all times, but water sensors positioned near potential problem areas can stay vigilant around the clock.

These sensors use electrical circuitry to measure the amount of liquid in their vicinity. If they come across a leak, water sensors send notifications directly to your smartphone or an alarm monitoring company. Some high-end brands allow you to customize the probe sensitivity or link multiple sensors together to monitor a large area.

It's a good idea to place water sensors in areas of your house where heavy plumbing use could quickly turn into water damage. Some of the most practical locations include near toilets, sinks, dishwashers, and washing machines. You can purchase water sensors from most home improvement stores and install them yourself or have a professional do the job for you.
