Three Steps to Take When You Have Water Damage - Lakeville 02347

Living room flooded with water Water damage can occur anywhere, any time. Call the professionals for quick water restoration

When water damages happen, it’s never at a convenient time. Chances are it’s in the middle of a cold winter night or just after you return from a week-long vacation and suddenly find yourself with 5 inches of water in your basement. 

Before we get into what steps need to be taken once you determine that you have water damage on your hands, the most important thing you can do is call a professional, IICRC certified restoration company such as SERVPRO of Marion / Middleborough to restore the damage. 

When you call a professional company, you get professional results. But if you hire subpar, expect subpar work. 

Here are three main steps to take when you notice you have water damage:

1. Shut the main water off. 

This may seem pretty straightforward, but you’d be surprised at how overwhelmed people can get when they noticed flooding in their home or office. To prevent the damage from worsening, locate your main water valve, and shut off the water. 

2.   Call an IICRC Certified restoration company, such as SERVPRO

When dealing with water damages, time is of the essence and we pride ourselves on being faster to any size disaster. 

3.  Don’t try to do-it-yourself. 

As tempting as it may be to try to “fix-it” on your own, it can actually cause even more damage. Avoid opening windows, changing the temperature in the room, or even using a fan to dry up the water. These changes can have the opposite effect of drying the area. If water damage isn’t properly dried it can lead to secondary damage such as mold and rotting. 

While you may not be able to control when water damages occur, you do have a say in what you’ll do about it as well as what company you choose to work with. Regardless of who your insurance company recommends, it’s important to choose a company with a good reputation and one you can trust.

It’s the kind of trust and reputation that SERVPRO of Marion / Middleborough has built for over 30 years. By serving our communities when they need it most, whether it’s day or night, we’ve helped countless people regain control of their lives after a disaster. Although we never wish a disaster on anyone, if you have to call someone, we hope you call us: (508)946-2397. We’re Here to Help.

Reminder to the Cook - Lakeville 02347

I’m sure you wouldn’t be surprised if we told you that cooking fires are the number one cause of home fires in the United States. 

If you ever cooked a meal, you can understand how easy it is to get distracted or carried away with other tasks in the kitchen. But even with the high probability of something catching on fire and spreading throughout the kitchen and the home, cooking is still something we do every day without hesitation. The truth is, we’ve gotten comfortable controlling the kitchen; fire, flames and all.

While it’s always nice to be a great cook, it’s often that level of comfort that can lead to a laid-back approach in the kitchen. 

The next time you decide to “chef it up” in the kitchen, make sure to use the same level of care and caution as you did when it was your first time whipping up a meal. There’s no such thing as too much attention when a fire of any size is involved. In the way you give your meal extra care and attention, our technicians at SERVPRO of Marion / Middleborough do the same with the work they do in providing our fire and smoke damage restoration services. 

If it gets too be too hot in the kitchen, you can be certain that our crews are familiar with the heat. If you find yourself cooking up more than a meal, give SERVPRO of Marion / Middleborough a call. We’re Here to Help!

Sneaky Leaky - Middleborough 02344

worker inspects roof leak Leaks can show up in a number of places and by the time you see signs of leaking, it usually means you have water damage on your hands.

Spring makes its arrival known by the increase in pollen and the increase in rainfall.

While both are usually kept outdoors, a sneaky leak can “drop” in whenever it starts to pour. 

Water damage caused by burst pipes is common in the wintertime, but just because the seasons change, doesn’t mean we no longer run the risk of dealing with that wet visitor.

Springtime water damage can occur in all kinds of manners. At SERVPRO of Marion / Middleborough, we’ve seen it occur quite often because of unresolved leaks. Whether in the roof in the basement, even the smallest leak can be responsible for great damage. 

The tricky thing with leaks is that you only know after it rains that there was even one to begin with, which leaves homeowners playing catch-up with their water damage. 

Thankfully, the crews at SERVPRO of Marion / Middleborough are experienced in restoring the damage caused by even the sneakiest leak. Call our office today for all your water damage restoration needs!
