Hectic and Rushed Morning Routines Result in Unwanted Flood Damage in Dallas Homes
Rely on SERVPRO for Water Removal Post Storms or Mishaps
Busy mornings do not disappear just because summer vacation has arrived. Mornings can also be hectic from the euphoria of happy expectations of summer vacation activities. Getting out the door can be the most important thing to a child when fun activities await them outside.
Dallas has many summer activities waiting for your child, but flood damage from an overflowing sink can put a damper on your summer fun. Rushing away from home can leave behind a small catastrophe waiting to expand because the water in the upstairs sink was not completely shut off and the plug was taken out.
A clogged toilet can also bring about the same fiasco if not announced on their way out, leaving you unaware of the danger until much later, after extensive damage has already taken place. If you leave home also, the damage is going to be even greater by the time someone returns home. If a storm dropped a limb on your roof exposing torrential rains to enter your attic crawlspace, this is the same problem, unwanted water.
You get back home and find that water has unfortunately taken over your house. Stopping the continued flow of water should be done in as safe a manner as possible. Electrical hazards are especially present in multi-level homes when the water is coming from an upper floor because water can easily saturate walls where wiring and outlet boxes are positioned on its way down to the ground level. If you cannot safely get to the water shut off or the source of the water safely, call an emergency plumber.
After the water has been stopped, contact SERVPRO so we can begin restoring your home. Removing the water can help revitalize even the carpeting when done correctly and without delay. Some materials may need to be removed and replaced when water has been in contact with them for an extended amount of time. Thus, the sooner we can begin working to make it “Like it never even happened,” the greater the chance of saving those same materials from destruction.
Large volumes of standing water, from a storm type of flooding, elevates the humidity levels. Stop the damage from progressing. Restoring your home includes making repairs where possible, and replacing what was destroyed. We focus on restoring as much as possible, as this keeps costs low and decreases the amount of time involved in the entire process.
For any amount of flood damage, SERVPRO of Southeast Dallas County has the technicians your home deserves. We are local and always ready to take your call at (972) 227-0800.
