Moisture can sneak its way into your home, causing damage that can take a long time to become noticeable. This gradual and almost imperceptible deterioration is what makes moisture the number one enemy of homes everywhere. Fortunately, moisture damage can be prevented.



In today’s article from Mr. Fix-It, your trusted local Gutter Helmet® dealer with the best gutter guard reviews, we list down simple tips on keeping your home moisture-free.

Check for Water Leaks

Persistent water leaks aren’t just pesky, they can also lead to mold and mildew growth. If you’ve ever had a mold and mildew infestation, you’ll know that it’s not the easiest nor the cheapest home maintenance problem to fix. To spot water leaks, the first places you should check are the following:

  1. Kitchen and toilet sinks, especially the pipes that are concealed in cabinets, as in vanities
  2. Ceilings in particular are usually where you’ll see signs of water damage in the form of stains. Roof flashing should also be inspected, as these roofing components are the most prone to leaks.
  3. Gutters and downspouts are primarily the ones that direct water away from your walls, siding, basement and foundations. When these components develop leaks, your entire home becomes compromised.

Be Proactive

Always have your toolbox ready in case you have to do a few temporary repairs while waiting for the pros. There are also preventive steps you can take to ensure moisture and water won’t damage your home. For instance, you can keep your gutters clean to ensure that rainwater gets directed away from your home and its foundation. The good news? You can keep your gutters clean with the help of Gutter Helmet gutter guards!
