Increasing the Value of Your Home Through Flooring

Your floors are an often overlooked but very important part of your home. Dirty, tattered, outdated or ugly floors can make your home look far less attractive and valuable than it may be. In contrast, beautiful and well kept floors give your home a special sparkle. It is especially important to pay attention to your flooring if you are thinking about selling your home. By installing clean and beautiful new floors, you can increase the value of your home far more than the cost of your flooring. My background as a real estate agent has taught me what potential buyers want in floors, and now I'm going to teach you. Make your home all it can be with floors that say your home is the best.

Avoiding Major Plumbing Leaks With A Water Sensor

Isabella Bennett

It is one thing to look for a leak in your home, but many times it is much harder to discover leaks in your business. With everything you have going on running a business, the last thing you want to be doing is trying to hunt down a plumbing leak. This can be both expensive and time-consuming. While there are many signs signifying you have a plumbing leak including, a high meter reading, drips from pipes, the presence of mold and mildew, you can't always know when you have a plumbing leak. In an effort to avoid plumbing leaks from worsening, the installation of a water sensor can be the solution. 

Local Water Sensor Systems

You have several different types of water sensors available on the market. One of the more common systems is a localized water sensor system. This is placed in a vulnerable area that is prone to water leaks. Most of the time, you will want to place this type of system in a bathroom, kitchen, or other area that utilizes water consistently. When the system detects a water leak, it will sound an alarm. Someone will need to hear it and make the necessary adjustments to avoid a larger leak. One of the main benefits of choosing a local water sensor system is that it can be relatively inexpensive. Having an alarm go off when a water leak occurs can end up saving you thousands of dollars by preventing a major leak. 

Automatic Shut-off Water Sensor

The other common type of water sensor system is an automatic shut-off system. This is a much larger system that controls the entire building. These types of systems cost much more than the localized water sensor systems. You can expect to pay around $1000 plus the cost of installation should you decide to invest in one of these for your company. Unlike the smaller water sensor systems, this system will actually cut off the water supply when it discovers a leak. This means, that your system is handling things for you even when no one is at the business. The security and safety of having the sensor prevent a major leak can outweigh the cost of the system. 

The smallest water leak in your building could cause major problems within your company. From the onset of mold to causing a shutdown, you could end up losing quite a bit of money through remediation. By installing a water sensor system, you can avoid all this and have the peace of mind that you won't have to endure any major plumbing leaks.
