Water damage and importance of timely water mitigation
You depend on your business to keep money flowing in, and you depend on the building where it’s located to keep business going. When a pipe or supply line springs a leak, however, it can throw a kink into your week. The time it takes for you to arrange pipe burst cleanup can make the difference between a simple cleanup or more extensive water damage.
The First Few Minutes
Water damage can be caused by a variety of events:
• Pipes breaking
• Supply line leaking
• Toilet overflowing
• Adverse weather flooding
• Foundation cracking
Even if all you need is pipe burst cleanup or supply line repair, the first few minutes of water cleanup are crucial. Turning off the source stops more water from making the problem worse.
The First Few Hours
The longer water sits, the more potential havoc it wreaks. Walls can start to disintegrate, and items made of pressed wood can start to swell and warp if they are exposed to too much humidity. Water from burst pipes and supply lines can still damage the furniture, floors and supplies in your workplace. Call SERVPRO of Greater Carrollwood / Citrus Park (813) 694-9085
