When it comes to water damage or indeed any other type of damage the best thing you can do is prevent it from happening in the first place. This can mean many different things to those in different situations. To prevent water damaging your kitchen you may need to inspect pipes and maintain a regular schedule of maintenance. To prevent water from seeping into your home during the rainy season you may need to get up on the roof and repair damaged tiles. Whatever maintenance or repair is required it is far better to do the repair before it becomes a problem then after.
There is take for example a burst pipe in the kitchen. The pipe bursts and floods the kitchen and after you have switched off the water to that type you now have to clean the floors, dry everything, repair the damaged pipe and watch out in future for the development of balls and mildew. If, however, you replace the damaged pipe before it bursts you will not have to do any of those things.
