How to prevent water damage in my Wausau home this summer?
There are a lot of fun things coming “down the pipeline” this summer; perhaps you’ve got a family camping trip, a road trip with old friends, or a high school reunion. Do you want to know what else is coming “down the pipeline?”
Water. And lots of it. And that means that if your pipes aren’t sound, there could also be water in your basement or other interiors of your home. Faulty pipes are the leading cause of interior water damage, but you could also fall victim to poor rain drainage, sump pump (or other appliance) malfunctions, or other sneaky water damage-causers.
Here are a few things that we at K-tech Kleening recommend you can do to prevent water damage in your Wausau home this summer:
Investigate leaks right away and fix them promptly. This one may seem obvious, but you’d be surprised at how many people push off getting help for their water problems. When it all comes down to it, you are never doing any good by waiting to call help. Leaks do not fix themselves. Call a professional team at the first signs of problems to minimize damages, save money in the long run, and grant peace of mind.
Test your sump pump regularly. We’d recommend doing this once a year, and more frequently during especially stormy seasons. If your pump stops working, water could flood into your basement.
Pay attention to your gutters. Clean them at least twice and year to prevent blockage. Standing water caused by buildup could erode through your gutters and cause damage to your roof. Secure your downspouts so that they point away from your home.
Replace your washing machine hoses regularly. An old or brittle washing machine hose is a recipe for disaster in your home. Invest in replacements when your washing machine hoses start to show signs of age.
Monitor your water pressure. If the pressure of the water running through your pumps is too high, they are far more likely to burst. You can purchase a water pressure gauge at a local hardware store.
Pay attention to your water bill. In addition to damaging your home, leaks can really take a toll on your wallet. A leak in an unknown location may be detected simply by knowing how much to expect on your monthly water bill – if your water bill spikes unexpectedly one month, there is a good chance that there is a leak somewhere causing a double whammy – increased water costs for water that you’re not even using, and the dreaded water damage.
It is important to remember that sometimes, even the best prepared homes fall victim to water damage. The constant battle is preventing it. But, rest assured, if you’ve lost a battle, you can still win the war. Be sure to react properly, and you can minimize the damages to your home and the costs of restoration. It is key to react fast. Water Damage never improves with time. Call a team of professionals from K-Tech today. We are experts in water extraction, structural drying, and thermal imaging. We know what to do, and know how crucial it is that we do it fast.
Fantastic experience from start to finish. Both Jim the manager and Jim the hands on fellow made everything work out perfectly.

We were very pleased with the quality of work done by Rob and Dylan cleaning our air ducts at our home. We are truly grateful for the service they provided and can tell the difference of the air in our home already. We have an older home in which I don't think the ducts were ever cleaned and we feel good knowing our air system will now be clean for the upcoming heating season Rob and Dylan were very friendly and courteous, on time, and did a great job during the process and also with putting things back together and clean-up afterwards. The gals in the office were also friendly and helpful in explaining the cleaning process and setting up the appointment. We would definitely recommend K-tech Kleening to clean your air ducts!

I am very satisfied with the service from K-tec. They came when they said they were going to come, they left when we got more rain, and they came back when I called again. I'm very satisfied with how they handled it and how they communicated with me and I will definitely use them again.

We had our carpets cleaned because our dog kept using our carpet as a potty bad. We are now almost a week from our carpet cleaning and there is no trace of a pet smell on our carpets! Absolutely recommend them!

The guys came on time and were very professional. We had our vents cleaned out after a whole house remodel. We can feel the difference in the air already! We are so happy to be breathing in clean air! We've used K-tech for our oriental rugs in the past and have been very pleased. We are looking forward to having them come and clean our carpets next!

I had the carpets in my apartment cleaned recently and I thought that the workers for were professional and punctual. With having cats in the apartment, I think they did a quality job of getting the urine stains out as well as the smell. I would recommend them and will be using their services again in the future.

The men were professional, knowledgeable, friendly (without being pushy or over the top), and efficient!! I couldn’t have asked for better service, and my carpet looks fabulous. I will definitely call K-tech the next time I need my carpet cleaned - 100%!! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

We used KTech sevices for duct work cleaning. The service men we worked with did a great job explaining the process and did a thorough cleaning for us. We will be using them in the future.
The gentleman that came was very professional. Did a good job. The only that kind of bothered me was the citrus smell. In the beginning it was very pleasant but got a little bit too much towards the end of the night.
We had K-tech do some cleaning at the SAFER fire stations. They were quick to respond and on time. They did a very good job. We will use them again and recommend them for any cleaning job you may have.
K-Tech was great to work with. They helped me decide what I really needed to have done and took care of everything I wanted. The guys that came out were very professional and courteous. They came in, got the job done, and everything looks great! Thank you!
The gentlemen that came and cleaned my sofa love seat and wall hanging were very professional. Everything came out so nice and clean. This is the second time I have used K Tech since moving up here 4 years ago. I would recommend them highly who wants a professional job done right. Thank you K Tech
Friendly and informative office staff. Tech’s who performed the service had attention to detail and saved us money on a portion of the service. We are very happy with the results of the service. We will have them back in 3 years.
We found out our sump pump and back up pump both failed on a Sunday afternoon. 2 plus inches of water through out our finished basement. I called K-Tech and Alex was here within the hour. He was extremely helpful - he even helped to find a plumber that was willing to come out and install a new sump pump on a Sunday evening. Alex did an amazing job, pumping out the standing water and setting up fans and dehumidifiers. He and Rob came back the next day to remove carpet and padding. Jim Young also came out to check on the drying out progress. The K-tech team continued to check on the progress and make adjustments every day until the basement was dry. Excellent communication not only in person but via text and e-mail. I would highly recommend K-Tech.
Thanks for being so great to work with in this time of Covid. We moved out of a rental to a new home and they cleaned the carpet. The set up was great and they worked with us doing paperwork and set up all on line. Friendly people to talk to and over all great professional job.
They did all they said that they would do and more. Will use them again for sure
Even during a pandemic they prioritize the needs of their customers of big and small spaces. Needed my apartment carpets cleaned after moving out during the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis and they made sure to get it done ASAP to respect everyone’s safety.
Very knowledgeable technicians who explained everything they did. They taught me more about maintaining my hvac system while they were cleaning out the ducts. I will happily recommend K-Tech to friends and coworkers.
Jamison and Damon were very kind and very efficient. The carpets look brand new! Even my 5 year olds typical juice spills are non existent! I am very thankful and satisfied. The price was not bad either very affordable and would recommend to anyone looking to get carpets done or have to be cleaned for leaving an apartment.
Chris and Cody did an excellent job explaining the service and what to expect! They did a very nice, neat and organized job with the carpet cleaning. Definitely recommend them and will use service again in 9 to 12 months. Thanks
Very pleased with the customer service and complete cleaning they did in our home. Very thoughtful and friendly staff. Explained everything that needed to be done. Scott and staff you Rock!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
The techs from K-tech that cleaned our air ducts were fantastic and very informative on answering any questions I may have had about the cleaning. The air quality inside our home is so much better since we had it done. I highly recommend getting your ductwork cleaned if you are thinking about it and using K-tech. I definitely would recommend them to anyone.
The guys showed up at the promised time , we’re very professional, wore bootys over there shoes in the house and the ducts were spotless after they cleaned them . Money well spent and was 100% satisfied and would recommend them to anyone . Ivan Machmueller Wi Rapids .
The Service guys are awesome very nice and curtious. While they were cleaning the carpets for us we ended up have a water pipe break and flooded the basement. They did awesome work and getting it cleaned up and dried. Thank you very much Alex!
