Water damage is usually the result of an accident. So when it occurs, you need to take immediate action. Water damage can be caused by:
- Broken or leaky pipes
- Overflowing washing machines
- Broken water heaters
- A leaking roof
- Natural disasters (floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc.)
Any time there is standing water or moisture in your property, it can quickly develop into water damage. Since the damage can start developing immediately, it’s vital that you get water damage restoration done as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more long term damage is being done to your property.
As soon as a pipe bursts, you notice water leaking from a water heater, or see moisture coming from your roof, you have to take action right away. If a pipe bursts, shut off your water to stop the flooding, and use a sump pump to suck out any standing water.
In cases of natural disasters such as a flood, you won’t have as much control. In those situations, your only option might be to wait until the water stops on its own. Floods will definitely leave behind some damage, but calling a service technician at Drying Tech to perform water damage restoration in Northern Virginia and the Surrounding areas will help keep you from suffering a total loss, and make repairing the damage less expensive.
