Our Team Has The Experience To Handle Water Damage In Rochester
Avoiding Water Disasters and Water Damage in Your Rochester Home
Consider the fact that you spend many hours away from your Rochester home. Whether it is for work every day, a family vacation, or a weekend getaway, many people are absent for an extended period. Imagine coming home to some sort of water disaster, where water is running down your stairs, or your living room ceiling has collapsed. Unfortunately, these events are not unusual.
When you experience a leak that is catastrophic or a small leak that has gone unnoticed for a while, the water damage that follows in your Rochester home can be devastating. That is why you need the assistance of a professional remediation company such as SERVPRO. We have the experience you would expect and won’t waste time getting to your residence to help you.
Make it a habit to check any hoses leading to dishwashers, water heaters, refrigerator ice makers and washing machines each year. It is a good idea to purchase a water leak monitoring and shut-off system, as it can alert you to any issues with leakage. Hoses which have leaks or cracks need to be replaced right away and replace them all every five to seven years.
Check all the caulking and sealant around tubs and showers to ensure they are watertight. Seal then again if needed. If you have experienced a leak in your upstairs bathroom, there can be damage to the ceiling and room beneath it. SERVPRO techs can handle all the damage, using moisture sensors to find any hidden water inside the walls and ceiling, and replacing drywall and other materials that were damaged beyond repair.
When you are away on vacation, shut the water supply to your washing machine off, and do not leave the house while the dishwasher or washer are running. You should also know the location of the main shut-off valve in your home. If a damaged hose or a pipe burst, it can send water rushing into your home. Knowing how to shut off the main water supply quickly is essential in a case like this to save stress, time and money.
