Planning for the Unexpected Water Loss
Water damage is not limited to homes in low-lying areas. Leaks and overflow from broken pipes or faulty appliances can cause significant water damage to any home in the Council Bluffs and Missouri Valley area. Heavy wind and rain can force water into the basements of both low-lying and hilltop homes. Unexpected water damage is stressful for any homeowner both upon initial discovery and during the restoration process. The technicians at SERVPRO are trained in the step-by-step drying process needed to get your home back on track to its preloss condition.
Not all water emergencies can be prevented. Subsequently, homeowners benefit from knowing prior to a crisis where their home’s electrical and water shutoffs are located. If water is rising in a basement, the ability to shut off electrical power to that areas is a necessary safety measure. While not much can be done to stop rising water levels due to severe Iowa storms and flooding, knowing how to shut off power to a well or turn off the city water main can minimize damage to the home caused by those sources. Families can preventively plan for a water emergency in their home the same way they plan for a fire emergency. Safety should always be the number one priority.
SERVPRO crews are equipped to handle the aftermath of water disasters. SERVPRO technicians are trained to safely enter a home and start water mitigation. Additionally, SERVPRO technicians understand the value of family possessions and will discuss with homeowners any items which can be remediated by the SERVPRO team.
