Our Experts Discuss Our Restoration Strategies
When water leaks occur in your home, it is always advisable to implement immediate mitigation of the damage as quickly as possible.

Tips in Dealing with Water Damage
Always make sure it is safe to enter the area where there is water damage. Ensure that there are no electrical or other dangers to avoid. Stop the source of the water as quickly as possible. Call SERVPRO to help remove the water and moisture in your home. Use mops, towels, and even blankets to remove as much standing water as possible. Remove any area rugs, books, magazines, and items that could leach dyes onto carpeting. Place all furniture on blocks to avoid leaving marks on carpeting.
