How a $0.13 Part Became a $3,100 Problem
We recently had a home owner call us because he noticed a small water spot on his ceiling in his living room. He did state that he noticed it start about two months ago but didn't think much of it because of how small it was. When one of our employees went out to check it out- there was more damage than the home owner noticed.
What caused the water damage was a simple rubber washer in his hose outlet for his washing machine. Because the owner let the problem go on for so long, he never noticed the amount of water than had seeped through the walls and in to other areas of the home (four other rooms). The total damages turned out to be over $3,100. All from a $0.13 part.
