Water can be extremely intrusive in a household. When dealing with a leak from a water supply line, the sooner you can find the source and stop the leak, the better. 

This family dealt with a leak from an upstairs bathroom that made its way throughout their whole downstairs. Ceilings collapsed, insulation fell through, and much furniture was lost to this water intrusion.

Water Damage Facts:

  1. Mold can start growing in as little as 24 hours, so call SERVPRO ASAP if you are experiencing a water damage!
  2. Even a small leak from a crack in a pipe can spill 250 gallons of water per day. A crack ? of an inch in length can be all that is needed to add up to a massive repair bill.
  3. Water is a conductor of electricity, which means that if you are experiencing a water damage, you should turn off electricity in order for technicians to be able to safely extract water.
  4. If left for long periods of time, water can turn into a dangerous biohazard. If water is sitting for more than 72 hours, it is considered “black water” and is a pathogenic biohazard. “Black water” can also include sewage and chemical waste.
