Have your home checked during extended holidays

12/20/2017 (Permalink)

SERVPRO responded to a call last week about a vacation home that had water damage from a broken pipe.  

SERVPRO later discovered that for the amount of water that had been displaced into the basement, the pipe must have been broken for close to 3 weeks before anyone realized the damage.

A few tips for those of you taking extended holiday trips.

*Ask a trusted friend or neighbor to monitor your home on a daily basis, ESPECIALLY if there are freezing temperatures

*Hire someone to come and house sit for you.  There are services online or you can contact your local House, Apartment Rental Agencies.

*If you do have someone watching the house, make sure they know where the Main Water Shut Off Valve is.  SERVPRO can provide you with a free Main Water Shut Off Valve tag for easy identification.

*Depending on how long you will be gone, monitor the temperatures coming up during your vacation and set the thermostat at a level that helps to ensure pipes will not freeze.

Should you have a problem of course call SERVPRO immediately
