Winter Water Hazard

12/19/2017 (Permalink)

SERVPRO responded to a call last week about a vacation home that had water damage from a broken pipe.  

SERVPRO later discovered that for the amount of water that had been displaced into the basement, the pipe must have been broken for close to 3 weeks before anyone realized the damage.

A few tips for those of you taking extended holiday trips.

*Ask a trusted friend or neighbor to monitor your home on a daily basis, ESPECIALLY if there are freezing temperatures

*Hire someone to come and house sit for you.  There are services online or you can contact your local House, Apartment Rental Agencies.

*If you do have someone watching the house, make sure they know where the Main Water Shut Off Valves are.  Ask your local SERVPRO provider for one of these FREE Main Water Shut Off tags and place it on or near the location.

*Depending on how long you will be gone, monitor the temperatures coming up during your vacation and set the thermostat at a level that helps to ensure pipes will not freeze.

Should you have a problem of course call SERVPRO immediately
