Water has a mind of its own and can cause some serious issues for your home and property. Once a leak starts, the water can quickly seep down your walls, get under your floors and spread everywhere in your home.

The longer the leak is unaddressed, the worse the problem can become! Addressing leaks quickly can help you avoid the more serious damage, and you can avoid serious issues like structural troubles or even mold infestations.

How Leaks Happen
We don’t get a lot of rain here, but when it does rain, it can cause serious issues. If the ground is really dry, it can cause flooding to occur and water can quickly get into our basements. 

Water leaks are also common inside the home through various issues. Burst pipes, faulty appliances and even a slow drip from your sink can all cause serious damage over time.

If you notice a new puddle on your floor or come home to an obvious water problem, try to stay calm and avoid walking through the water. Locate where the water is coming from and find the appropriate water valve to stop the flow of water. 

If the leak came from an appliance, consider shutting off power to the appliance as well so it can’t start back up again and leak the rest of the water in the pipes onto your floor. After that, give us a call! 

What to Do Next

We will get started on your restoration from the moment you call us. Our team is highly trained and ready to respond to whatever sort of situation you have discovered. We will ask a lot of questions about the damage to make sure we have the right crew and right equipment, and then we will get going on our way to your home. 

While you wait for us to arrive, you can certainly start the drying process on your own! Open some windows to ventilate the area or turn on a fan to get the air circulating. Our industrial-strength equipment will be able to take care of the entire drying process, but every little bit helps. 

How SERVPRO® Can Help 

Once we arrive at your home, we will get to work on locating the source of the leak and setting up our equipment to dry out your space. We will get out our air movers and blowers to remove the standing water, and we will use thermal cameras to detect hidden moisture behind your walls. 

After your space is dry, we will get started on any necessary repairs. Water is known to swell or warp floors, create soggy drywall and soak through carpet, so we will focus our attention on addressing any sort of repairs that are needed. 

We will work hard to make sure your home is returned to its preloss condition as quickly and as efficiently as possible. Call us day or night for immediate assistance with your water damage situation!

A fast recovery is always crucial after suffering from a water disaster. Contact SERVPRO of Cheviot Hills/Palms today.
