You Walk In The Bathroom And See This

 

Water damage can happen in many places, it really depends on where the water is located in your home or business. Water supply lines, drain lines, exterior walls, condensation pipes and more can all be potential sources of water damage in Sacramento. This moisture condition can quickly lead to wet building materials that need to be addressed.

This shot was taken of a shower drain leak in the upstairs bathroom that leaked into the room downstairs. Although is wasn't in the water supply line, this drain line leak managed to surprise the tenants when they saw the damage. Luckily they notified the manager of the problem.

It would be great if these sorts of problems were reported right away, the water damage can quickly grow into a bigger issue. Management should stress the importance of reporting these sorts of things, it is usually not the fault of the resident. Homes require maintenance over time, residence should feel comfortable in sharing what they find day-to-day that may be an issue that can get worse.

It would benefit management to encourage tenants to speak up about water damage repairs in there home and apartment in Sacramento.

Good morning Tom. The quicker these problems are discovered the less damage there will be. Good thing you were contacted.

I totally agree.  Many people may be afraid to say anything (what if they think it's MY fault) and then the problems just multiply.  Sharing problems as soon as they happen should be encouraged.

The wife and I clean rentals from time to time.  You would not believe the condition some people leave their homes in.  I take that back you would believe it most people can't imagine.

Yes, catching this stuff earlier is a good thing.  It's then much easier and less costly to fix.

So many renters don't report this sort of thing until it is a major problem.

Maybe we can help educate them when they move in and offer reminders while they are there Roger D. Mucci .

That doesn't look good at all and unfortunately tenants often wait too long to report issues.  If they were more proactive, it would save lots of money in these types of situations.

Just this week I had to have someone re-caulk around the master bathroom shower pan in one of my rentals as the caulk was old and starting to break up. When you can catch these repairs early they are easy, cheap, quick fixes but if you let them go on over time they turn in to real headaches!

Tom good advice.  Like anything else the longer an issue goes unaddressed the bigger the problem becomes.
