Do you know where your emergency water shut off is?
Water damages are a very unexpected event that can occur any part of the house that is connected to any water source. The adverse secondary impact of a water damage for the home owner is enormous.
We at SERVPRO understand that water damages happen unexpectedly but we also understand that we can live prepared for damages because “prior preparation prevents poor performance”.
We advise that property owners are aware of the emergency water shut off within the property and how they operate in the case of a water damage. All emergency shutoffs should also be regularly checked by a professional to ensure they work properly in an event of an emergency.
Finally, repairs of leaking facets and pipes should be carried out urgently to prevent degeneration that can cause a water damage.
