Do you know where your water shut off is?

7/23/2020 (Permalink)

Nothing can ruin a vacation faster than a phone call alerting you to catastrophic damage to your Parma house, or returning to a home that has been sitting in water due to a broken/frozen pipe or a hot water heater that defaulted into a flood. Turn off your main water valve before going on vacation! IF you shut off your water valve before going on vacation you can rest assured that you won’t come home to catastrophic water damage.

If you are traveling during the winter it is also a good idea to drain the lines too.  It is easy to drain the lines by simply turning on a faucet on the main floor or in the basement.  If you do not know where your main valve is, ask your plumber.  It is also a great idea to make sure that the valve works. It’s better to be prepared than to be in a panic when water is pouring from your ceilings.

If for any reason you are not able to turn it off yourself sometimes the water company will shut it off for you.  This simple act can prevent thousands of dollars of damages.

Knowing where your water shut off is also just a simple bit of knowledge that can save you thousands of dollars in water damage.

If you do find yourself with water damage, we are always here to help 24/7. 440-887-9000

Did you know we offer full reconstruction after the water damage cleanup is complete at your Parma home? SERVPRO of Parma/Seven Hills is your one stop shop for all your water damage repair needs.

Our teams will come in and effectively dry out the area and remove all moisture, hidden and seen and make sure there won’t be any further damage in the future because of insufficient drying. Once the drying is done the reconstruction can begin.

The final step entails restoring the affected area to the same condition it was in before water had done its damage. This can include minor repairs such as small sections of drywall being replaced to large re-construction projects. It all depends on the level of water damage which took place.

If SERVPRO of Parma/Seven Hills wasn’t the company to do the initial mitigation, we can still do the reconstruction. We work with all the local insurance agents in the Parma and Cleveland area and will work directly with your insurance to make sure your water damage looks “Like it never even happened.”
