Water Damage Can Be Costly
The key to avoiding a costly restoration is to eliminate water issues before they become a big problem. A simple fix, such as replacing a toilet supply line that is old and rusty, that goes unattended may progress and lead to a large restoration project.
SERVPRO of Sorrento Valley/University City has the training, experience and equipment necessary to properly handle any water situation. If water issues go on for too long, secondary damages can become a problem if mold has begun to grow. Many insurance policies don't include long term damage so make sure to have any odors or small leaks inspected and handled right away.
Here are a couple tips below to help avoid water damage in your home:
- Check roof for signs of damage/wear
- Keep gutters and downspouts clear of debris
- Upgrade washing machine hoses
- Check appliances such as dishwasher drains, ice maker lines, and water heater hoses
