Among homeowner’s worst nightmares is to return home after an hour, day or week away to a water claim.
Pipes break, washer hoses deteriorate, and roofs leak. Unfortunately, many times these periols occur when the home is empty. When the homeowner returns, there can be catasrophic damange.
If this happens to you, please keep the following safety precautions in mind:
- Do not walk in any standing water, as it could be charged from an electrical outlet or appliance.
- Look up before entering a room to make sure water is not coming from the ceiling. If the ceiling is wet, be aware for potential collapses.
- Determine if the water could be coming from the back up of a sewer or drain. This water is considered grossly unsanitary and any contact can cause illness.
- Find the source of the leak and safely shut it off as soon as possible to avoid further damage.
