When Flooding in Caused by Plumbing Failures in Port Orange
Why Port Orange Residents trust SERVPRO for Prompt Flood Damage Restoration
Flooding is much more common during the winter months when rainfall prominent, and temperatures are low. During the holiday season, water inside pipes can freeze. When water freezes, it can cause pressure spots or expand during thawing and burst the pipe. This phenomenon is especially common for homeowners when they are away from the property for several days at a time. To mitigate potential pipe issues, you can shut off the water supply or put water heating on a timer for the length of time you are away from the property.
Sometimes accidents do happen, which is why there are professional services for flood damage here in Port Orange. A broken pipe can spew out hundreds of gallons of water in the property in a matter of hours. Fortunately, the water entering the home comes from a clean water supply, which can make the recovery process smoother as there are no biohazardous substances present for SERVPRO technicians to remove. You should be aware that a body of water contains microbes and is therefore likely to degrade without immediate intervention.
Making sure you have the correct insurance cover over the winter period is a valuable task to complete ahead of time. Water emergencies can strike at any time, but with insurance and trusted restoration service, the losses you sustain are controllable. SERVPRO works with your insurance adjuster throughout the facility to restore line with your coverage and limit damages as much as possible. It is one of the reasons each of our technicians operate with a restore over replace mentality.
Flood recovery can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks or months. During this period, you should try to avoid areas where flood restoration is ongoing. We understand how inconvenient floods can be, and SERVPRO works hard to keep inconvenience to a minimum. Generally, our efforts are concise and focused, which can speed up the recovery process. We can also place warning signs and physical barriers in the affected area and keep notifying you of the ongoing process to ensure you stay in the loop throughout.
