Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

The Responsibility of a Homeowner in a Water Loss.

12/8/2017 (Permalink)

It seems obvious, but the absolute first thing you do when encountering a pipe burst and water pouring through your home is turn off the water. You need to have at your disposal a water meter wrench(you can get this for less then $20.00 at your local hardware store). Some houses and most commercial properties have a main water shut off valve inside the house, but most do not, and its important to train everyone from teenagers to seniors how to use the wrench to cut off your water meter. The difference between a  500 gallon water loss and a 50,000 gallon water loss can be enormous. Next call us, SERVPRO of Litchfield/West Phoenix at 623-594-6033 and your insurance agent. We can refer a competent plumbing company  to repair any damage to water pipes. If you call a plumber first, please beware of those who offer to have "someone they trust" come to remove the water and dry out the house. In Arizona it is not unusual for an independent water restoration company to pay referral fees up to $1,000 to the plumber who gets them the job. This fee is added to the cost of the job, which will ultimately drive up insurance rates. Our goal is to return your house to pre-Loss conditions as affordably as possible. Just remember this: We are...faster to any disaster.
