A ​free ​water ​damage ​training ​course ​is ​going ​to ​be ​held ​on ​Monday ​January ​4th ​2016 ​for ​property ​managers, ​in ​order ​to ​best ​equip ​them ​for ​protecting ​their ​property. ​Many ​property ​managers ​were ​trained ​on ​water ​damage ​protection, ​but ​that ​training ​could ​have ​occurred ​many ​years ​ago, ​and ​practices ​and ​procedures ​have ​properly ​evolved ​since ​then. ​This ​evolving ​art ​is ​one ​that ​is ​often ​dismissed ​by ​property ​officials, ​but ​the ​rising ​costs ​of ​drying ​out ​a ​property ​and ​repairing ​all ​of ​the ​damage ​caused ​by ​water ​is ​starting ​to ​convince ​people ​that ​preventing ​water ​damage ​in ​the ​first ​place ​is ​a ​much ​better ​attitude ​to ​have, ​and ​should ​be ​able ​to ​prevent ​huge ​costs ​and ​difficulties.

One ​of ​the ​key ​problems ​in ​water ​damage ​prevention ​education ​is ​that ​there ​are ​many ​different ​ways ​that ​water ​damage ​to ​occur, ​and ​it ​is ​usually ​the ​unexpected ​ones ​that ​catch ​people ​out. ​For ​example, ​everyone ​knows ​that ​leaving ​a ​tap ​on ​when ​the ​plug ​is ​pushed ​in ​will ​lead ​to ​water ​overflowing, ​and ​eventual ​water ​damage. ​On ​the ​other ​hand, ​very ​few ​people ​know ​that ​water ​damage ​is ​just ​as ​likely, ​if ​not ​more ​likely, ​to ​occur ​when ​a ​water ​heater ​pan ​stops ​working. ​That ​is ​an ​eventuality ​that ​is ​rarely ​prepared ​for, ​and ​yet ​a ​little ​knowledge ​in ​this ​area ​can ​go ​a ​long ​way.

When ​a ​water ​heater ​is ​installed, ​there ​should ​be ​a ​pan ​built ​within ​it ​that ​is ​there ​to ​catch ​any ​water ​that ​accidentally ​spills ​out. ​It ​may ​seem ​strange ​to ​put ​something ​into ​a ​unit ​which ​assumes ​that ​at ​some ​point ​it ​will ​fail, ​but ​the ​truth ​is ​that ​eventually, ​every ​unit ​will ​fail. ​Nothing ​lasts ​forever, ​and ​it ​is ​much ​better ​to ​start ​with ​understanding ​that ​than ​to ​be ​taken ​by ​surprise ​later ​on. ​This ​water ​pan ​could ​be ​made ​of ​plastic, ​metal, ​or ​even ​rubber. ​It ​does ​not ​really ​matter ​what ​the ​pan ​itself ​is ​actually ​made ​from, ​but ​instead ​it ​is ​vital ​that ​the ​pan ​has ​been ​installed ​correctly.

If ​it ​has ​not ​been, ​then ​it ​is ​only ​a ​matter ​of ​time ​before ​the ​water ​starts ​to ​spill ​out, ​causing ​slow ​and ​steady ​water ​damage. ​What ​is ​often ​so ​debilitating ​about ​water ​damage ​that ​occurs ​by ​a ​leaking ​water ​heater ​is ​that ​it ​is ​often ​not ​noticed ​for ​a ​long ​period ​of ​time. ​The ​longer ​the ​water ​damage ​continues, ​the ​deeper ​the ​water ​damage ​goes ​into ​the ​walls, ​and ​the ​longer ​time ​mold ​has ​to ​grow ​and ​find ​a ​home ​there ​– ​and ​therefore ​the ​longer, ​more ​difficult, ​and ​more ​expensive ​it ​is ​for ​that ​damage ​to ​be ​repaired.
